Praise: Psalm 148: 7-10

Praise God! Every day start it off with a PRAISE GOD! There is always something to thank Him for, today it could be that it is Sunday! So glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!

This week the wonderful Peggysue our hostess and the verse she chose is Psalm 148: 7-10.
"Praise the Lord from the earth, you sea monsters and all depths; Fire and hail, snow and mist, storm winds that fulfill his work; You mountains and all you  hills, you fruit trees and all you cedars; You wild beasts and all tame animals, you creeping things and you winged fowl."
Praise is a powerful word. These verses are a reminder that we all need to praise God for everything. Yup - even the creeping things {shudder}. I do believe that a lot of us praise God through song and there are a lot of songs out there that we love. This week we are sharing our favorite songs. There are a lot of favorites on my list but I went with "Everything Glorious" by the David Crowder Band. I love to sing this loud - but only when no one is in hearing range! If the code below is gibberish - click on HERE for the link to the video. 

Throughout the year I find that I often tell our children and/or grandchildren that I am proud of them for an achievement or just because they are good parents or spouses or sons and daughters, brothers and sisters. But sometimes I don't say it and wish I had or didn't have the words at the time. When I saw this image from Doodle Pantry and the sentiment I knew I wanted to make a card.  Now I can send the words I could not or did not speak. 

This card came together but it took a while. I had the image colored and set on my table but it just didn't come together - until today! I was digging through a drawer that had a lot of older, don't use it but won't get rid of it stuff, and found a baggie with fancy fibers. Remember those? Well, when I saw these fibers the card was a done deal!  

The challenge for this week is to create a card or project that uses any type of creature from tiny (like an ant or bug) to a very large creature (whale, elephant). The possibilities are endless! Have fun!

Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry - the peacock and verse is from them!
