Birthday Song: Colossians 3:16

Hello again, it is Sunday and I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!

This week the talented Teresa is our hostess and the verse she chose is Colossians 3:16 .

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

Singing - I think that music is a universal language. We use it to express joy, sorrow, and praise. I remember (I know aging myself here) when I was a teenager there was a song called, "Can't get over losing you" by Andy Williams that I would play and sing over and over again (while crying of course!). I think that we can all relate to a song that brings back an instant memory. Now we see kids with their IPods (some of us gray hairs too) bee bopin along to the tunes. Yesterday it was one of our grandsons birthday party and we all gathered around and sang Happy Birthday to Adam. Celebrations also have singing. But I think that the songs that mean so much to me are the worship and praise songs we sing at church. That is what is on my Ipod: the music that fills my soul and warms my heart!

This was  quick card that would be good for any birthday. I like having some generic birthday cards in my stash. I generally like to make my birthday cards for a specific person but there are times when I need one NOW!

This week we were challenged to to use music in some form. Sheet music, music notes, instruments, or singing.

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps with an adorable stamp set.

Hi Miesje! This is a beautiful card!! I love the rich blue and touch of yellow. Thanks for sharing from your heart, too. I love music & singing, but the songs which mean the most to me these days are the old hymns. When I was young, I didn't appreciate them like I do today. Guess there's new wisdom with aging here... ;) Have a marvellous day!!
