Love: John 3:16

Sunday again and time for another challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

This week MariLynn is our hostess and the verse she chose is one that I think every Christian knows by "heart" - John 3:16. Be sure to stop by our home page to read her devotion on the scripture this week. 

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."


Sometimes I think "love" in an overused word - I know that I use it often. I love this stamp - love your hair - love that dessert! Yet the word LOVE in this verse holds a power that we can only imagine! It reminds of of when my little ones were little (a long time ago) I used to tell them, "I love you THISSSSS much!" with my arms spread out as wide as they could go and then I would scoop them up and hug them to pieces. That is just a fraction of how God loves me and us! AWESOME!

MariLynn challenges us to make a card/project that is related to love. It could be a heart, the word "love" or just something that you love using on your projects.

This week's sponsor is - Sweet n' Sassy Stamps. Check out their store - some really cute digital stamps! The randomly chosen winner will receive 3 of their stamps - good luck!

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments!
