Hello Spring

"No matter how long the winter is Spring is sure to follow"

It's been a long winter, but spring has finally arrived!  Today the warm sun is shining down on the earth and there is no chance of rain in sight.  The snow is melting and all the flowers are beginning to bloom.  Yes, spring is here, and it makes me so happy.  Do you know why?  Because spring is my favorite season! 

The other day, with my camera in hand, I found a lovely cherry tree in full bloom. Of course I then proceeded to take pictures of the beautiful pink blossoms.

Spring is the time of fresh starts and new beginnings... and pink flowers!  I honestly think that the best part of spring is the pink cherry blossoms.  I look forward to taking pictures of these little flowers every year.

"For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come." Song of Solomon 2:11-12

I can't wait until more flowers begin to appear.  My camera is ready to capture the beauty of each flower that blooms. 

I hope you are having a lovely day. Enjoy the sun and always take time to notice the little things in life.  Sometimes all we need is to take a break and smell the flowers.

30 Days Of Bible Lettering Challenge (First Five Days)

Sunday, March 5, 2017

It's always fun to challenge yourself.  On Instagram I love to participate in various lettering challenges.  Last month (February) I enjoyed participating in a watercolor challenge. I did my best but  I missed most of the days due to always being busy or running out of inspiration. But I did my best and you can see the few watercolor creations I made on my Instagram: @uniquelyhis4ever.  If you haven't followed me yet on Instagram, I'd love it if you'd give me a follow, I try to post daily.  

This month I'm excited to be participating in round 4 of the 30 Days of Bible Lettering challenge.  If you haven't heard of this lettering challenge I encourage you to check out the 30 Days of Bible Lettering website.  It's never too late to join in the challenge.

Believe it or not, it's already five days into March, which means, I have five Bible verses lettered. I'm really excited to share with you all the the first five verses I lettered for this challenge.

Day one - "Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance." Romans 5:3

Day two - "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5:4

Day Three - "As it is written, 'I have made you the father of many nations'—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist." Romans 4:17

Day four - "Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:1-2

Day Five - "In God, whose word I praise-- in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" Psalm 56:4

I wish I could say I'm always on top of things but to to be honest with you, most of the time I find myself falling behind on these challenges.  All I can do is to do my best.  There is no shame in having a day dedicated to catching up on all the days I missed.

I can't wait to see what verses I will be able to letter next in this challenge.  I'll be sure to post more as continue working on the challenge.
