My Garden

Good morning! Thanks for joining us at  Stampin Sister's in Christ for another challenge based on the Word of God.

This week our lovely  Linda is the host and she has chosen:
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you. That ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Linda's challenge : Use something new on your project - it can be a new product, technique, embellishment - even a color combo that is new for you - Show us what you got!! 

Our sponsor is "Clear Dollar Stamps" prize is  $15.00 in stamps.


I used this new stamp I got from Joann's, it comes from the dollar stamp bin and this is the studio 112, I got 8 of these, they must be something new, they are large and stamp beautifully. I also used a new embossing folder  from Quick Kutz. colored with copics and added  ultra-fine flower soft.

Insight: John 13:34-35 'That you love one another as I have loved you.'

This is one of my 'many' favorite verse's. Love. Growing up in a home with no love or affection only violence and hate, one would assume that I would grow up with a personality of the same. Though I was heading in that direction, it was an encounter with Christ Jesus that changed the coarse of my life. The love of Christ for me and in me changed me to love all those around me. As He freely loved and forgave me, I freely loved and forgave those who abused me, not with words but with action. When my abusers were ill, I took care of them to the point that they gave their lives to Him. Love is a powerful force, changing and making new all of us who surrender totally in the Master's Hand.

Thank you for stopping by and I so appreciate your comments.
Have a Blessed day
Rebekka
