Hi!! Before we get to our word art for the week, I'd like to thank everyone for stopping by my blog week after week and viewing my layouts. I really appreciate all of your wonderful comments. They bless me more than you know.
Today's word is from the Book of Isaiah...
We are all children, God's children, and as such we should be taught of our Father, the Lord. God has appointed and annointed teachers to instruct us under His direction and blessing. God tells us that those that know and love Him shall have great peace and joy. As a parent, what greater joy is there than to know that our children will have God's peace because we have ensured that they have been taught of and know Him.
We started teaching our son TJ of God at a very early age. Proverbs 22:6 tells us to "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not turn from it." TJ is active in our church and he has been a lay reader since he was in elementary school. When he first started reading, he had to stand on a stool to be seen. Now he no longer needs the stool. We are so proud of him.
For my layout, I used a photo of TJ doing the scripture reading at Sunday service last month. To embellish the page I stamped the Our Daily Bread Designs Grunge Cross next to the photo. To go along with the grunge look of the image, I distressed the edges of my papers and added metal studs.
