ABC Scripture Challenge - Delight

"DELIGHT"...doesn't the word just make you smile? It's on my "FAVORITE WORD" list! I know I've mentioned that list in previous posts and one of these days I'll share what I'm planning to do with it. As I was looking up all the Scripture verses that contained the word delight, I was excited to find many of them also contained the word "REJOICE" as well! Yes, of course this word is also on my list...it's just like JOY! This verse in Zephaniah 3:17 is just so beautiful! The Lord will take delight in ME? Wow! He will quiet me with His love? Yes! I know it because I have experienced it! He will rejoice over me with singing? Can you imagine that? No, really...think about it for a minute and just imagine it. How wonderful is that? The Lord REJOICING over us with singing...I love it! I also had to add the verse from Psalm 37:4. We in turn can DELIGHT ourselves in the Lord and He will give us the desires of our heart! How incredible is that? God is so GOOD! I have been praying for some friends that are have some struggles just now. I'm hoping they will be encouraged by these verses! :o)
Behind the writing I wheeled the music notes very lightly in yellow ink. Again, I'm continuing with my un-hoarding (is that a word?) by using some of my Grandma's seam binding. I haven't bought any of the new and this is the first time I've used any from my stash! This is truly vintage! Okay...that's enough from me! :o)

  4. This page is "Delight"ful to look at :-) The yellow is so spring like and just wonderful at this time of year.

    Your Grandmothers seam binding is so bright and cheery and it enhances those beautiful roses, or are they daffodils (?). Beautiful page you've created :-)

    I love the way you have "punctuated" the "D" and the "i" with those silver flat back pearl things.
    Love you - Leslie
