Its Your Birthday!!

Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of  Life and death and those who love it will eat its fruits.


Our Birthday Blog Hop starts today at the Stampin Sisters In Christ blog!  You will want to start there and follow along. There are many blessings along the way, along with chances to win prizes. I hope you join us as we celebrate our one year of sharing our love for Christ. Plus there is a chance to win a $50 dollar gift certificate to the sponsor of your choice.

The challenge is to pick your favorite scripture...I have so many, but this one I love because it reminds me the power my mouth has, to hurt, cut, wound or to up lift, edify, sooth and comfort. It makes me think before I speak or react.

I love this card, it is so perfect and I so agree about what our mouths can do, need to sit and think before speaking. Thank you again for reminding me, your inspiration and of course your awesome cards.

What a great reminder to watch our words. Our pastor yesterday was encouraging us to give our kids a tube of toothpaste and to have them see if they could squeeze all of it out and then when they had it all squeezed out to then have them put it back in the tube. Then take the time to explain to them how once words are spoken they can not be taken back.

Miesje said...

What an adorable card! I love it and I truly love what you had to share. Isn't it amazing what power the words we share are!

Laurie said...

Great reminder, Rebekka, to think before I open my mouth! I love how you've presented it with this lady who looks like a character. Hopefully, she's bragging about her grandkids as she sits on the beach. :D

BTW-I love the name of your blog. We are all so diamonds in the rough.

Hugs, Laurie

Kristine said...

Cute card, and what a wonderful reminder to each and everyone of us of the power we have to either tear others down or build them up. And the choice is given to us every day.

this is so true, there are time I wish I had a rewind and could start over, so thinking clearly before saying is the best way, not always easy, and so hard to do.

This is one of my favourite verses as well. It really is hard to control the tongue sometimes and I need to continually remind myself of this verse before I speak. Love your card, thanks for sharing it with us! xo

Fran, said...

Fun card.,(love it) perfect image for the verse...Now which one of us could send it out???? Surely not me Lord!!
Cheers

Traci S. said...

Rebekka~

Wow! you are so creative! What a fun card to get such a serious point and Scripture across. I was told, "Garbage in...Garbage out!" To mean that what is taken in from gossip, TV, or books etc... often comes flying out of people's mouths!

I love this super bright, wonderful card! Your coloring is so great!

Remember~
He IS Able,
Traci S.

Jennie said...

Sucha fun card Rebekka! Love the design. Thanks for the reminder from Scripture, truly it is a struggle to use it for good!!!

Vicki said...

Rebekka, what a fun card you have created!...such fun colors and that image is perfect!And and awfully powerful verse you used...really makes one think!

HUGS!
Vicki

Catherine Kraft said...

Love your card!!! What a gift of joy your gave us today with your side-splitting card. Lord, we are so responsible for the words that come out of our mouths. The Lord has brought to my mind lately what I learned from Don Gossett's book, "What you say is what you get". Basically what he shares is God created the world with His words. He created us in His image........our words have the same power. If I can just remember that each time I open my mouth!! Thanks for sharing!!
Hugs and blessings,
Cathy

Deedee Anderson said...

What a wonderful pairing of image and verse! This is one of the first verses I memorized, and yet one of the hardest to remember in daily life. Thank you for the reminder -- I truly needed it today.

Pat (mspfd) said...

hehe... that image is so funny. You paired it with the perfect scripture.

mycardz said...

Oooooooooo, this is sooooo adorable! What a perfect pair. The sentiment should be kept on everyone's bathroom mirror as a reminder each morning! :) hugz, Mary
