Word Art Wednesday/Stampin' Sisters in Christ Valentine's Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Word Art Wednesday/Stampin' Sisters in Christ Valentine's Blog Hop. 

If you arrived here from Tabitha’s blog, you're in the right place, but if you found me by chance, please go back and start at  Word Art Wednesday.  We are celebrating LOVE......God's love.  All you need to do is visit each stop on the Blog Hop and leave a comment on each blog to be eligible for the Grand Prize from Stampin' Up.

I truly enjoy the “fluffy” worldly Valentines day we celebrate - heavens, any date that celebrates LOVE is so welcome, but there is a LOVE, a love that is deeper, more profound than anything we ever experience and that is a love that was borne out of the the sacrifice upon the cross which was made for us. 

This is the love that steps in when the world crushes us and puts us out in the cold, leaves us alone, takes from us - this love is waiting right there to put His arms of love around you. 

I constantly hear the question “Why does He allow bad things to happen to us?”  It’s because we live in a fallen world.  He never promised things won’t happen, that’s life in our broken world.  No, He never promised us we will not suffer at times, but He did promise He will be here to comfort and guide us when we allow Him in. 

I don’t know what you might be struggling with today but I’m praying as I post that you allow yourself to accept the greatest gift in life - the gift of God’s pure love.

I hope you enjoy the Vintage Image or Fun Froggy Cut I've made for you as prizes for stopping by but don’t forget to visit all the blogs to be eligible to win the big Stampin’ Up prize. 

My Vintage Image is in PNG format so will work for all your projects as it has a transparent background.

My Froggy is my very own design, made specially for use with the Silhouette SD or Cameo.  I was coveting this little feller but ah when love pierces one’s heart it does funny things so I’ve decided to allow him to hop into YOUR life too!   He’s a sweet addition to a greeting card but can also perch on his own to cheer you up at work atop your computer monitor or even a “hoppy” addition to a child’s lunch bag.  I’d be delighted to see how you use him. 

Both of these files will be archived in the TABS sections up top of my blog so you are able to come and visit any time should you misplace these. 

When you've left your comment here, Miesje is next on the Hop, and I know she has something lovely for you to see.  We hope you enjoy the Blog Hop, and we'd love to have you visit  Word Art Wednesday regularly.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day!

We will announce the Grand Prize winner on our Word Art Wednesday  blog the afternoon of Tuesday, February 14.

Make sure your last stop should be at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ where you will tell us you finished the entire blog hop.

  22. Barbara -- your art is beautiful! (I love the textured paper and shape of the word art.) But your heart is even more lovely -- kind (the sweet comment you left on my blog -- and yes, I am Canadian :) -- in Whitby, ON -- where are you?, generous (the adorable froggy you're sharing with everyone) and thoughtful (I noticed somewhere along the hop that you are praying for all the bloggers and their visitors. I, for one, so apreciate that!)Thank you for sharing your art AND your heart!

  27. Hi Barbara,

    I have tried 7 times to leave a comment for the Word Art Wednesday blog hop but keep getting an error message. I will continue to try but if you can post for me that would really be great.

    "Your card is just glorious!! Love all the texture, gorgeous color and that flower is fabulous!!"

    Thanks so much. Every time I post with my Google name, it gives me the same word verification (smenita), and then says I didn't type the correct word. Over and over again! I even rebooted my computer and deleted all history and cookies...no luck.
