Psalm 46 Be Still and Know I am God

You will need to click on this to read it since the letters are in silver. This is some paper I have had awhile. I used watercolors to add yellow to the Chinese lanterns, and I used a purple watercolor wash over the whole thing.

This is the 4th day of the 21 day challenge. To be truthful I never even looked at the prompt. I left at 7:00 a.m. and I just got home at 9:30p.m. I spent the day with John. I am so tired right now I am just going to fall in bed and sleep. I have so much to do tomorrow.

John received a card from Susan from Blackberry Creek with this scripture on it. Then later in the evening I read this same scripture in a book I was looking at, it just jumped out to me. I hope it encourages anyone else who needs it. ~love nita

I love this- it' so true about "being still." We are so busy in our lives, we forget to listen, sometimes! You seem to have "your ears on" though.

Not only is this just lovely and the scripture a wonderful reminder but it humbles me to see you have the strength and focus to be doing a 21 day challenge. Nita, you truly are an inspiration to me :) xo
