Divine Design

It is that time of the month and once again, my friends and fellow "Scripture Chicks": Lori, Jami, Taylor and Nancy are displaying their projects for the Divine Design monthly Bible Verse Challenge.
For this month's Bible Verse Challenge, I decided to use my favorite scripture of all time.

This scripture speaks to me like no other and I consider it my life's verse.
I made another page for my 6x6 book using Daisy D's papers for my inspiration!

It's hard to see in the photo (I just couldn't get my lighting right), but the green strip is paper pierced with holes all the way down. The folder 'tab' is a die-cut sticker that is from Daisy D's as well. I dyed the twill using ink pads from Tim Holtz. It was a little darker than the mustard color I was going for, but that's okay. The scripture is computer generated for this project.
Stamps~ CHF Notebook paper
Ink~ Bashful Blue
Paper~ Daisy D's DP, Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red, So Saffron, Black CS
Accessories~ Spiral punch, May Arts red striped ribbon, fern punch, spiral clip(Target), twill (SU), Creative Imaginations rub-ons- wingding and "Blessed", paper Piercer

I found the following write-up on the web. It was labeled "Author Unknown" or I would certainly give credit to the writer.

"Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm
is approaching long before it breaks?
The eagle will fly to some high spot
and wait for the winds to come.
When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will
pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages, below the
eagle is soaring above it. The eagle does
not escape the storm, it simply uses the storm
to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the
storm. When the storms of life come upon us
... and all of us will experience them
... we can rise above them by setting our minds and our
belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us,
we can allow God's power to lift us
above them. God enables us to ride the winds of the storm
that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and
disappointment into our lives.
We can soar above the storm."

Isn't that awesome? I love it!
Please play along with our challenge if you are so inclined. The only specifications are:
  • Use a scripture on your project (not a quote)
  • If you upload to Splitcoast- use BVC08
  • Please let me know and I will link you here as well!
  • Have fun!

  • I have this post set to automatically post at 11:00 am EST.
    Me, Katie and Kevin are working at the Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend. We hope to see some racin' while we're there! Go #88!
    Have a great weekend!

    Angel that was so incredibly beautiful about the Eagle and the storm. I think that would make for an awesome card!
    I read that you were having a tough day the other day with muscle spasms in your back ~ I pray for God to come down and heal you and bless you with complete restoration and comfort. Bless you Angel. Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem (or write up)
    Have fun this weekend
