I'm back today with a new Hymn and Scripture challenge page. I've had it finished for a few days but am just getting around to posting it. I'm still busy, busy working on some upcoming fun! I'm thinking perhaps it's been a little bit TOO busy, busy; I've accidentally finished Challenge #16 before Challenge #15. Oops!! I'll get to work on #15 right away.
I decided it was time to create a pretty page with flowers, as I haven't made any flowers for quite some time. I was also quite anxious to try out some new punches. I made the two larger flowers. The flowers were all white to begin with but they were colored with some sprays. I added the title with letter stickers in a contrast color so that it would stand out.
This is seriously one of my favorite hymns! It's another one of those that bring my Dad's voice right to my ear! I love that! I've included the first verse of the hymn on my page. It says:
"I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story, because I know 'tis true;
it satisfies my longings as nothing else could do."
Isn't that beautiful? For my Scripture verse I used this one found in Psalm 89:1. It says:
"I will sing of the Lord's great love forever,
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness
known through all generations."
God is so good and I love to tell the story of all He has done for me! It's so easy to carry on with life, day by day, without taking the time to stop and acknowledge the abundant blessings we receive from the Father above. It's important that we do share because it gives others the opportunity to experience the love of God for themselves! So please tell me tell me your story...I'd love to hear it! :o)

I tried repeatedly to upload a traditional version of this hymn sung by Alan Jackson.
No matter what I tried I could not upload it!
It seems this was the version I was supposed to share instead!
It's fabulous and I hope you enjoy! :o)
