He First Loved Us!


How wonderful it is to know that God loved us and sent His son to be our Saviour!  How could I not love him who did so much for me.  I am thankful each day that the Lord Jesus Christ has forgiven me and placed me in His family!
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." - John 1:12-13
For my card today, I used the word art from Word Art Wednesday and inked the edges a bit. This I layered with the butter coloured textured paper that I used for the base and added a touch of distressing.   This i added to the butterfly panel with the ribbons tied around it.  Then with a touch of distressing to the edges and some bronze pearls I attached this to the card base.  Simple.
Thanks so much for dropping by! Praying you to know the joy that comes with knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and being apart of His family.
I'm linking this to Word Art Wednesday this week.  I'm also linking this to a new challenge blog called Twist of Faith and it's first challenge- Joy.  If you haven't seen them yet, I encourage you to check them out HERE!

Well, I came to check out your card as a follower, but see that I also need to comment as a DT of Twist of Faith. Your card is wonderful -- butterflies are symbols of "new life" which is perfect for the verse, eh? Thank you for joining us in the first challenge at Twist of Faith. God bless.
