ABC Scripture Challenge - Weary

Hello Friends! Do you notice anything missing from my Challenge page this week...like perhaps my Scripture Challenge Word? lol Can you believe it? I didn't even notice until my husband came home and saw my page, and then he asked me what the word was. I just stood there with my mouth open in shock! haha I also forgot to add my little "w" in the top right hand corner. I had my photo ready to post...it never occurred to me I had missed putting something on my page that I have added for the last 22 pages; as well as all of 2010! "Well, okay...it will just have to wait until I can fix it because I am just far too WEARY..." and then I laughed! :o)

I do a lot of praying before I post these Scripture Challenge pages so that I share with you what the Lord wants me to share. I want to share my Lord with you! If I can do that by giving you just a little bit of encouragement to help you with your daily struggles...well, that's all I want to do! One thing I've learned is that living with pain makes one weary! We all have our pains and burdens, don't we? They can wear us down and tire us out! What a comfort it is to read the words of Jesus himself say, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) He knows just how we feel and understands our weariness. When we go to Jesus we can receive the rest we need. He alone can give us the strength and energy to face all the pain and burdens of tomorrow...and we can do it with great JOY! :o)

So tomorrow, after I'm rested, I'll find some way to fit WEARY on my page. It may be wonky and odd but I'll always remember this one! lol


Papers: Basic Grey - Indian Summer, Recollections;
Border Punch: Fiskars; Flowers: Prima.
*Note: I wanted my page to look "weary" so I used
these flowers that I received free with a store purchase.
They were rather worn and broken and weary looking.

  2. It's not wonky. It's beautiful! Isn't it sad that we have someone who is willing AND able to take care of all those burdens and woes and most of the time we'll pick that baggage right back up after we've brought it to him and tote it right back with us. Stubborn lot aren't we? :-) I love your page, with or without the "w"! :-)

  5. Nancy, this is a most delightful page. I picked up some fall colors last night at the local drug mart with the intent of a little something coming from them. Your work inspired an idea for me. Can't wait to see what idea you use to place the Weary W!

  12. I love it just the way it is! The distressed edges say weary to me...with the pristine borders showing through. Makes me think on the scripture and how the LORD shines through us even in our weariness. And the colors are wonderful. TFS
