Hello friends. I was in the mood for mixed media again. The background of this canvas is music paper and sewing pattern paper. Then I used acrylic paint (watered down so you could see a little of the paper underneath.
I chose to hand write the scripture from Philippians. It made it more personal to me.
The images of butterflies came from Graphics Fairy. I LOVE her vintage images. And they are FREE!
I outlined each butterfly with ink, so they would stand out more.
Paul wrote these words while imprisoned. It was so encouraging to me. There's been times in my life that I thought, I can't get through this. But friends, we can...through Christ who strengthens us.
Yesterday, I had a scare. My husband became very ill-all of a sudden. I thought he was having a heartattack. I called the ambulance and we took a trip to the hospital. Pacing the floor in the hospital, waiting and wondering, I started to pray. I felt like I was going to break down and start crying. But when I started praying all of a sudden this scripture came to mind again. Then I said to the Lord, Paul's right. I "can" do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Lord, give me that strength right now. I had a peace come over me that you can only get from the Lord. After 5 hours of tests and waiting and my hubby laying there with an I.V. of pain meds dripping through his veins, the doctor came in and said yep, it's a kidney stone! Praise God! Not that kidney stones aren't awful. They are! But it wasn't a heartattack and that was a relief.
Thank you for visiting today and for your comments.
I'm linking up with Graphics Fairy for Brag Monday. If you haven't visited Karen's blog before (I'm sure you have), you must!
Have a wonderful week, my new and old friends.
