I decided to design a card for MOJO Monday 417 this week. Sure hope you enjoy the sweet little birds.
The Bible insists its teachings be passed from generation to generation. For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life. Proverbs 6:23 Parents are responsible for education, trusting God for the outcome.
Sure hope those to whom the card will be given will find encouragement and hope as they seek to follow The Lord’s guidance in their lives and the life of their new-born child. Can hardly wait for the upcoming baby shower.
Woke up this morning and opened the book, Rise and Shine, by Liz Curtis Higgs. I’ve been going through it doing my devotions the past couple of months.
Today’s scripture reference was Psalm 1:3 which reads…
They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.
Sensed God speaking through the words…in the same way, you are also a tree in the kingdom of God. As your roots are planted deep in the soil of God’s Word, seeking out the Living Water that only Christ can provide, you flourish. Your branches stretch upward towards the Son and are refreshed by the wind of the Holy Spirit. Most of the tree’s work is done underground, quietly. Your growth is sure, no one keeps track, checks the roots, but God sees it right away. Finally, when your branches are strong enough to support it, the fruit arrives in its season!
Captured this photo while sitting on my front porch. In studying the photo, I discovered so much symbolism. The bird feeder is held in suspension by a staff anchored in the ground. The feeder represents a light house. The glass on the feeder is cracked along with the concrete adornment on the post holding the dividing wall. The bird is waiting to swoop in and grab a little nourishment.
Please share any insights you might find from the devotion, photo or my encouragement. Keep it positive!
This is my second MOJO Monday card this week. This is a stepped up version of the sketch. I used a similar color scheme and made a few changes. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better so I’m posting them both and hoping you will help me decide. I enjoy reading your comments. Keep them positive or I might just hit delete.
This qualifies for a stepped up version because I added several new techniques. You’ll find paper embossing, three dimensional flowers, and heat embossing. You’ll want to hand deliver this one or create a special box if you want to mail. It might require a little additional postage. It’s also a contest week. Jump in, you might get your feet wet but it will be fun.
