Carriers of Faith

MAY challenge: Tell your story!

Hostess: Kelly

Scripture: "Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—

those he redeemed from the hand of the foe..." ~ Psalm 107:2

This is one of my favorite times of year, celebrating this time of Christ's resurrection! On Easter morning when the tomb was empty, the gift to all of us was the assurance that we will live again and be given eternally glory. As Christians, of course, we hope to know Christ and accept him as our Savior and share the gospel with friends, family, those we fellowship with. Truly when God died on that cross for you, for me, for all of us, he paid the price for us to worship at his feet and redeem ourselves. On this hop today, we all unite to share our creations with you as well as a letter on each stop of the way. Please remember the letter on your host's blog and at the end ( Kelly ) will ask you to write the word from all the letters in order! What's more fun, there is a prize for one lucky winner which will be given at random from all those leaving the Guess the Word comment! ♥ Blessings to each of you! ♥

Challenge: This month, create a card/project/scrapbook page/picture based on the scripture above and what the meaning you pull from that is. Tell us your story! What speaks to your heart? What gifts do you have that you give to others as part of a fellowship - do you read, pray, write, create, walk, sing? There are so many parts in each of us ~ what part of your story are you sharing with others? As an added bonus but not required!! Please use the color GREEN {my VERY favorite color!}somewhere on your card to represent newness, growth, the blossoming of nature around us and the blooming friendships we have!


Those of you that know me, know in have absolutely no musical sense, so to answer Kelly's question.....I don't do anything musical in Church except support my husband as he rings bells!  I have always been active in Church though....running Sunday School and VBS, being an Elder and sitting on Church Council.  I have even been known to deliver bread to guests living close by.  I never press my beliefs on others, but will always tell His Story when the occasion arises!

You gave now read through a page full.....just to get the last letter in our hop.  Thanks for sticking around!

My letter is "D".

What a sweet card - and yes in giving just what we have in our hands is all that God requires - service and admin is a gift that not many bring to God's Family.
