Do you have an anchor? A few days ago my husband met a gentleman and they are becoming friends. This man after being in our home a bit commented that we must have a anchor as a family for the peace he seen here. It was a joy for my husband to share with him The Anchor of our souls. All but one of my children have also trusted in this anchor and it is such a blessing! There are many storms our souls will face from birth to death, but one thing is sure. The Lord Jesus if he is your anchor will hold you fast through any and every storm! I know this from experience and praise Him for the wonderful security of knowing Him and the salvation he gives by faith in his son Christ Jesus the Lord and what he has done for us on the cross.
This is a card that I made with this man in mind, and when my husband saw it he said I was never to sell this and that he wanted me to give it to him someday! So, I'm making another just like it to put away for a 'surprise'.
For this card I've used a boat in the bottle from Esther at Shoregirl Creations. I cut it out, inked the edges with some brown ink and coloured the waves just a bit with a pencil crayon. Then I paired it with this word art verse from Karen at Papercraft Memories. I've added layers of corrugated cardboard, a splash patterned paper from my collection and some Elmers braiding cord. With a finishing touch of an inkadinkadoo corner stamp.
I would like to share this is at Word Art Wednesday.
Thank you so much for dropping by to see me today! God Bless!
