Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Word Art Wednesday ~ "Praying of you" ~ Mr & Mrs D.




Hullo there everyone! a lovely weekend of weather here in our part of Oz, it was 6 - 20c today, bit warmer tomorrow, we are  very blessed .. colder winter weather down south.
A CAS card sent to Chris and hubby of Chris' cards and bits to cheer them on their way, as Mr D recovered from his major op.
this is done with Spellbinder Fleur de Label 8 folders repeated, with digital Bible verse which are available each week on Word Art Wednesday, so linking it over to that this week. I saw this layout on a blog ~ please let me know if it is yours, as remember the idea but not the post very sorry.
Also as made mostly with all snippets - including card base had for ages, linking over to the Snippet blog hop too at Di of Pixie's Playground.

Such a wonderful verse  (click here to see post on Word Art Wed. which had the verse)  for saving right click on it and select" Save as.." save to file in computer file, then print off): 
I love the promise of this verse... that nothing that happens is out of God's control,or is it a surprise to the LORD. No matter how hard, smooth or rough it is (or my body is in this day)- He with us in the thick and thin of the way we are travelling.
I pray for each and every person who takes the time to read this.
May He indeed be the Strength of your heart, and your Portion forever ... for He knows and cares for you in whatever path you are going.. He cares for the sparrows of the air, the lilies of the field, they are so beautifully clothed. 

As God says in Matt. 6 "How much more does He care for you and me?" we are so precious to Him, that He sent His Son, the LORD Jesus Christ to be our Saviour from sin, our Guide through life, our Friend in both the hard and smooth ways.
Jesus is God's gift to us, but this wondrous Gift is not our own till we take it for our own.
 Jesus is the fulfillment of this promise, He longs to be our Strength and Portion of our heart for ever. 
(Amen, how thrilling that is.. still thrills my soul
..let's yell it from the rooftops! or laptop :D)
May God bless your day wherever you may be and thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat, you are such a blessing to me.
Shaz in Oz.x
PS In answer to Di's queries in the comments below - yes, did see the heart connection, after the LORD pointed it out to me - it was chosen first then the pieces fell into place... as they often do when creating. As I pray like about lots of things.. God cares about little thing (like number of hairs on our head - Matt. 6), so figure it is not beyond His ken.

Sharon, this is so lovely...one of my fav S/Binders, as it is so elegant. And your verse today really was perfect (as I AM traveling, and it was so reassuring to be reminded!) Somehow you always manage to post just the right verse for me when I need them! Thanks for sharing guidance, encouragement & a beautiful card. It's 94 here in the Boston area, so it was also nice to read about cooler weather where you are! TFS & Hugs

Blessings,

Lovely snippets card using stunning dies and such a beautiful verse too Shaz. I wonder if you realised how perfectly you'd chosen it for Chris? Papworth Hospital where Mr D was is the foremost heart hospital in the UK.

Hugs, Di xx (Wish me luck today with Mrs A!)

Thank you, Shaz, for a really encouraging post, as I languish on my recliner feeling very weak and wan, waiting for my colonoscopy tomorrow! We do need reminding from time to time of God's amazing provision for us, don't we.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. What a time you and your sister had, with the loo not working upstairs!!! As regards the stairs, I can manage them - I haul myself up - but once we've moved in, I'm having a stairlift fitted. The man has been out and it's on order, ready to deliver when we need it. It will make a huge difference to me, and to my hubby too as he won't have to carry and fetch up and down stairs so much!

So glad you like our new house and the progress being made. It's very exciting, every step of the way.

It is indeed a beautiful card, and will be treasured, but the love that was sent with it is even more precious. I just felt so surrounded by the love of the Lord and the messages I had were all so right and reassuring.
Mr D is recovering well, getting lots of rest and being well fed by my sister, all the weight he lost is piling back on.
We are looking forward to finding out what the Lord has for us to do when he Mr D is fully recovered.
