On Tuesday, Paulette over at TLC creation posted a lovely freebie. I love the doodle and will be making cards with it, especially for some of my students - The verse however has been in my mind and it has been working it's truth in me :
From Col 3-14
Love is more important than anything else,
It is what ties everything together.
In the KJV:
Above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
I think the most important thing we have in life is our relationship with our maker, after that our relationships with people and then our relationship with what we do. Let me explain; we understand the importance of loving God and loving people, that type of love most of strive for, it is very solid in our lives, we must have it. There is something else, a lesser "worked" form of love: Loving others, even people we do not know, through what we do and what we say (or write). It isn't as existential as it sounds; when we pour our gifts and talents into what we do we make a positive difference. When we pour love and determination into our work, we make a positive difference.
I want to pour more love into what I do, I want my reputation to say I give it my all, especially because I also say I am a Christian, I want Love to tie it all together.
This worked itself into my card making this week, I made these two cards for Nicecrane Designs
and have several friends they will be mailed to. Roses universally speak of love, so I used one image from the Flowers bring smiles set
I printed four of these Rose images to one sheet, the cards are 5x7 base size. The rich color make these images truly beautiful!
Thank you for stopping by my blog spot and I hope you life overflows with Love!
