Scripture Lessons and Lyrics #3 - Always

Happy Monday to you all, my friends!

I hope you've enjoyed a wonderful weekend and are excited to see what this week brings!

I've had this page finished for a while but forgot to post it. The song for Challenge #3 is another contemporary one entitled "Always". It's a song full of encouragement! We all have to face difficult struggles in our lives...with health, relationships, job many things! However, God will ALWAYS be there for us. He is a constant refuge and source of strength throughout the chaos of life! What a joyous comfort that is for each of us! :o)

I have used a new pocket format for today's page...this one has two pockets. As in all my pages for this challenge, I am using supplies from my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. The "Always" stamp was from a previous SSS kit. If you look closely at the background, you can see that I stamped flowers and leaves all over the gingham paper. I used a soft green ink so it wouldn't interfere with my writing. I wrote out the second verse and the chorus. 
Please read the beautiful lyrics:

The second pocket holds the Scripture verse that I chose for this challenge. The background is one of the coordinating papers from the kit. I wrote the verse, die-cut it and layered it on another cut. Using the paper from the previous pocket, I stamped and punched some flowers. A bit of ribbon and some pearls and it was finished. 
Oh, but then I saw that this great cut-apart was also in the kit. It was the perfect final addition, and I simply added it with my tiny attacher. 
Always remember this..."The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble!"

This is how the completed pocket page looks:

Nancy I am going through so much right now, that this really blessed me and I needed it this morning. I am at work and should be working, but saw your email that came through and decided to read. God knows what we need and when we need it. Beautiful work my friend.

Nancy, I am, like Jonia, much in need of this wonderful promise. So glad I stopped today to catch up. Monday 24, was Dad's 77th birthday. Early Sunday morning, joined my Mom at the foot of Jesus. God's timing is perfect.
