Scipture Challenge, Home

I’m catching up on my Scripture Challenge from Patter Cross this week. One down, only two to go. A couple of weeks ago the word was Home. Patter did a great job sharing about the Home God is preparing for His children. When I went to study the on of the passages Patter referred to I was really caught up with Revelation 7:16-17.

They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat;
for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.

The joy in my heart is overwhelming at the thought that there is a place and time when God will wipe away all my tears. I hope I get to keep my tears of joy, but my faith is that in taking away our tears He takes away our pain and suffering. That is the Home I desire beyond all things.

Here is my ATC for our word Home:

I loved using Making Memories Vintage Findings. The gold flowers and birds are beautiful. I snuck in a Wendy Vecchi stamp in the background. I also enjoyed Tim’s new distress reinker Victorian Valet to spritz on the background color.

Artful Legacy

We have all been busy with wedding plans for Tabitha and David. April 24 is coming quicker than I could have imagined. I still have so much to make. Clothes play a big part of the whole craze. My husband was too easy with his tuxedo. No fair. Jim and I went shopping and we walked into the first store and they had everything I needed! My outfit even matches the color of Jim’s tuxedo. Too easy. I took Jacob over to pick out his tuxedo…which was much easier than I thought. Then he needed a jacket for the rehearsal party. For a t-shirt and blue jean guy I thought this would be the very hardest thing I had to do. Nope, once he tried on his sport’s jacket I picked out and a very cool shirt he was the happiest kid around. He wants to wear it to school today. The photos were done late last night, but I can tell you it’s day and night. LOL Too easy. We’ve had one blessing after the other through this whole wedding.
