Some Comfort For A Friday!

Happy Friday, my beautiful friends!
Thanks so much for popping in again! I'm jumping right in with my second participation post with Twist of Faith Card Challenges! This week is Challenge #2...Comfort, and that's what my card is all about!
I love this verse found in Jeremiah 31:13. The entire verse is:

"Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well.
I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow."

Yes, the Lord is my source of comfort and joy! I've had a crazy "Murphy" kind of day here today! lol  I'm thankful that I can finish this post and sit down with a hot cup of tea and enjoy some quiet time of prayer and meditation! :o)

Hi Nancy: I just want to say...your art really makes a statement for the Lord! Some people can make a "religious" card, and it somehow doesn't have the same feel yours do. I can look at your art and just so clearly see your love for Him. It's in all the details, in your handwriting, in the embellishments, and in the feel of your overall design. When you complete your work, it just exudes His goodness, and that's what I love so much about viewing your art. We are SO BLESSED to have you play along with us each week at Word Art Wednesday, nancy. And I praise God for you! Keep creating, keep sharing His goodness and love, and THANK YOU for sharing it all at Word Art Wednesday!

Oooo I love your floral tea pot and cup. That's a beautiful paper pad. That gorgeous doily cut makes the perfect background for your dishware. :-) I had changed my commenting settings and started getting all that junk too so put them back. Now if I could just figure out how to weed out all those plastic card company ones. :-( Hugs Nancy!

Beautiful card. I have a friend here that's going through lost and this quote came together for me. I wish I could give her comfort right now. Love everything about this card. TFS... Hugs.

I'm English, so this is my "cup of tea"...hahaa! A beautifully created card, Nancy, with such lovely details. I love the way you wrote out your beautiful personal, and a gift that would bring great comfort, I'm sure. Thank you so much for sharing your creation, and your love for the Lord, at Twist of Faith....good luck!

I needed this, Miss Nancy! It might be more like my "crankiness", but mourning fits there too.

So lovely. As usual, you have created a brilliant piece of comfort :-). Tea and a scripture.

Love what you have done with the teacup. Looks to be full of warmth and hot chocolate :D

The papers you have used are awesome.

Love you my friend - Leslie

Gorgeous layout Nancy, typically English with the doily - reminds me of my great grandmother and having tea with her - and the tea set is divine :)
