Scripture Series: Friend Loves at All Times-Join Us for Another Word Art Wednesday Challenge!

Magandang umaga sa inyong lahat!   Oops, hang on, don't leave!  You came to the right Blog...LOL  What I meant was "Good morning, everybody!" in Tagalog which is the Philippines' national language.  I was born and raised there and miss all the wonderful people and places I've left behind.  After I came to know Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior, I served in a spirit-filled Church that taught me who Jesus truly is with a Biblical perspective.  So, to all my Jesus is Lord Church Family out there in the Philippines, I am eternally grateful and sending all my love to y'all.

Now, this is my 2nd week as a DT member at Word Art Wednesday (did I mention how wonderful my team mates are?---Oh, they are great women who loves the Lord Jesus, too!) and I have such a wonderful creation to share for our Challenge starting today. I am highlighting the free Word Art that comes free with this Challenge, "A friend loves at all times," from Proverbs 17:17.  Just look for this day's Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and download.  It will be nice to see it with your Challenge entry but not a requirement.  As long as you submit cards that is uplifting, then you are welcome to join.  The cute main image is from Melonheadz Illustrating which I got free after buying an image bundle a few months back.  Aww, I love them to pieces!  Had a great time coloring them with my Promarker/Prismacolor/Bic markers.  I added 5 kinds of designer papers (scraps) to produce several panels/layers.  I added one of the Crochet flowers I made and attached it to a ribbon with a brad.  I attached 2 heart gems from Imaginisce and walah, this Card is done.  The base card is a Kraft A7 size that I bought pre-cut with envelopes.  I love how the colors came together neatly and the message of the scriptures is complimented by the image.

FRIEND LOVES AT ALL TIMES WITH ENVELOPE:

So, a friend loves at all times...  Some of us may say that this isn't true because some of those whom we considered close friends turned their backs on us at some point.  We might look for love at different sources and may find it temporarily with friends or family.  But you know Who is truly a "Friend that loves at all times?"------It is JESUS!  He is the very essence of  what a perfect love is and the very source of it.  The Scriptures tells us in 1 John 4:19:  "We love Him, because He first loved us."  Another verse to ponder on is in Romans 5:8:  "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." And one of my favorite verses, John 15:13:  "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."  Need I say more?  If you are looking for a lasting friendship, look no further cause Jesus is just a heartbeat and a prayer away.  Love and blessing to ya'll, always!
