Flowers: Ephesians 2:10

As you read this my husband and I will be in Alaska visiting our son and his family. We will also be meeting our new grandson for the first time!  Hopefully the post goes off without a hitch. Welcome once again for a challenge based on scripture at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

Sweet Jerusha is our challenge hostess this week and brings us the  verse from Ephesians 2:10

"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."

I love nature and flowers. I have a couple of bird feeders in our back yard and thoroughly enjoy watching the birds and we have a lot of flowers too. I have a thing for blue flowers - hard to find though. I also do like red. We have 12 geranium pots hanging in our back yard. Every day Jerry (my DH) waters them and says prayers for our children and other intentions as he waters. All 8 of our children know which pot is theirs and enjoy seeing how many blooms "their" plant has. So I think that I/we are reflected in what we love - our children - each other (husband and wife) and nature.

The challenge this week is; Create something that reflects you - you are God's masterpiece!

This week our sponsor, with a $15 gift certificate for their wonderful digital images is Clear Dollar Stamps

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments and have a wonderful week surrounded with God's love.

What an amazing idea to have flowers that represent your children, and how symbolic to pray over your family as you water the flowers. That just has to make God smile! Praying that your trip goes well, Miesje. We're missing you, but are blessed by your beautiful creation here. Gorgeous card.

I loved reading about your children's pots of flowers. i loved the thought that you shared about how we are reflected in what we love. Just like we are a reflection of God's LOVE for us. I love the blue flowers and the little bees and the lattice and pearls on your card. I can feel your "GARDEN" looking at your card.I hope you are having an wonderful blessed time with your family!
