Word Art Wednesday #95

Hi, welcome to this week's Word Art Wednesday challenge.  This week's word is from the Book of John.

What an amazing promise!  Those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior become children of God.  Membership in God's family is by grace alone, it is the gift of God.  It cannot be earned by anything we do, God gives this gift freely to all those that receive him and believe on his name.

Today's layout is of my uncle, Wayne, my mother's brother that was closest to her in age. He was a preacher, a true son of God.  He wasn't with us long, he went to be with God in his 40's,  but he spent his short time here doing God's work.  I spent time with  my uncle during my early college years right before he passed away and he he taught me a lot about selflessness.  He was a pillar in his community. He always put others first.  If he saw a need, he would try to fill it, even if it meant he and his family would go without.  I am so blessed to have know him.

I hope you join the Word Art Wednesday challenge this week. Feel free to save today's word art to your computer for your personal use.

  1. Beautiful page Gemiel - What a testimony of your Uncle, and his selflessness and love. God was glorified by his life, I am sure.

  2. Isn't it a blessing when we can still cherish our family even into death by preserving their legacy in a scrapbook?!!!! TFS

  3. Gemiel these are such beautiful words you write about your Uncle. I wish I could have met him. But I know I will in heaven. I have had people like him in my life and they really do leave a lasting impression on our hearts. Your layout of him is so handsome. God bless you and hugs.

  4. I love the way you honor the memory of your relatives even as you are honoring our Lord by using the scriptures in your art.
