For our August post, our hostess is April. The Carriers of Faith is a blogging group on Splitcoaststampers.com. We chat, inspire and support each other. We have a monthly post with a specific theme for the month.
April's words: Since we post the day after my wedding anniversary, I would
like everyone to make a project based on one of the scriptures read at
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 Love is patient; love is kind; love is
not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its
own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in
wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all
things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Your card doesn't need to
be based on a spousal love, and as such, I would love to hear a story of
one of your loves!
I have to say I am truly Blessed with my husband. When we first met, we did not like each other...at all.....! We had many mutual friends and bumped into each other often. We grew on each other over time. We had many similar life philosophies, and also were both the same religion- which I am very Thankful for. He is not into Drama at all- and lets stuff roll off his back. We rarely fight at all. (We have a '51-49 policy'....whoever has really strong feelings about something is '51' usually). We give it up to God and try to communicate our feelings in a loving way, most of the time, and make concessions with each other.
We have raised our three children with Church being part of our routine and did our best to teach them the fundamentals of a Faithful Christian lifestyle. I do hope when they make choices they use those Christian ideals as the basis of their decisions : ) If they take a vacation from their faith, I will pray like St Monica......
I found this beautiful image at Sweet Stamps- the scripture is part of the stamp set as is the LOVE sentiment up at the top of the Lt side. I colored with Copics: 0, BG0000, C1, C3, C5, V22, V25, V28, G94, G99Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28, E35
I don't know about you, but I pick the paper 1st, then match the markers to the paper. The DP is Prima 6x6, the flowers and pearls are also from Sweet Stamps. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on dimensionals.
