Bible Verse Thursday Challenge - Seasons

This week's Bible Verse Thursday challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts is to use a fall theme and a verse about seasons. My inspiration for this challenge is two-fold: first, this time of the year with all of the amazing colors outside just reminds me how good our God is. He helps us transition into winter, with beauty and peace, just like in the transition from life to death. Secondly, I have been spending more and more time in the Word and am finding so much peace there. Reading in Psalm Chapter one, I fell in love with these first three verses:

"1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."

The law was given to us as a gift to help us live a healthy and blessed life. So many promises and blessings if we just follow His "Ultimate Guidebook to Life".

In the making of this card, I have used Alisa's Sketch Tuesday layout plus Lynn's Technique Lover's Challenge from Splitcoast to make an easel card. It was so fun and so'll have to give it a try!! The verse I printed from my pc, the designer paper is "Indian Summer" from Basic Grey, the border punch is Martha Stuart Doily Lace, the button is also Basic Grey.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Many blessings to you!
