ABC Scripture Challenge - Easy

Hello, my dear friends! Life isn't always easy, is it? Sometimes we have to deal with pain, with illness, or even with loss of a loved one. Sometimes we find ourselves frustrated as we wait for plans to fall into place. Other times, life's circumstances separate us from those we love, and we have to cope with missing them and worrying about them. Then there are the periods of time when work can become a terrible stress in our lives, yet it can't be avoided. Life can weigh us down and wear us out if we let it! It doesn't have to though! In these verses in Matthew, Jesus tells us to come to Him when we are weary and burdened and we will ..."find rest for our souls." Doesn't that sound fantastic? Another verse I want to share with you is found in 1 Peter 5:7. It says, "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." Isn't that lovely? He cares for you! I care for you too, and I want you to know that I prayed for each one of you as I created this page! Most of you know how much I enjoy praying for you! :o) I tried to make a page that was restful and calming to look at. So of course I had to pull out another Webster's Page! lol I hope when you look at it and read the verses, you know that the Lord is ready to help you with your burdens. You just need to ask! :o)

This is a beautiful page Nancy! So restful. Love your varied flower sizes with the colored pearls. They are stunning. The butterflies are just the right touch for someone (me) wishing for spring and warmer weather.
Love you - Leslie

Nancy, this is such a fresh page and so nice.
thankyou for your comments on my scripture challenges. Just to let you know that with the Psalm one, I did not create the beautiful word art ( I would like to be able to do so, though). It is always given to us to use on our page.

Praise God that it isn't left up to us to solve our own problems! I'd probably never get out of bed again. He is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother, and you... are a blessing!

Beautiful layout as usual Nancy and you always seem to find just the right words but there are plenty of those in the Bible!
I adore those papers and the flowers and butterflies are gorgeous :)

Love and hugs

Nancy what a terrific message! I love what you said, "you just need to ask." And, you know that is so true! Our Lord is wanting us to ask also! Praise God for always being right there waiting and anticipating our request! Thanks for the wonderful message.
