Hymn and Scripture Challenge SAVIOR LIKE A SHEPHERD LEAD US

Another hymn I have not heard before but another one with lovely words !
Jesus as our Shepherd is such a comforting picture.
I so like the verse from Isaiah 40:11, a picture of such a caring Shepherd.

For my page I cut out a shepherds crook shape and stained it with brown ink and chalk and added some flowers,raffia bow and leaves. I have had the grass border for some years so was glad to be able to use it here. The little sheep is from a peel off sticker Nativity set.

                                                              Papermania paper and gemstones

I have so enjoyed meditating on Jesus our Shepherd these past two weeks! The Hymn and Scripture Challenge is such a blessing , details are on Patter's blog .It is possible to join in any time , well worth a visit!
Looking forward to the next hymn.

Thanks for visiting.

Little Moose card!

I haven't got many stamps but a few years ago I did buy two stamps featuring Riley Moose.
I find these moose images so cute! They haven't been used very much so I was pleased to be able to make a card with one of the stamps for a friend who has been in hospital and needs to take it easy for a while.I was pleased to be able to use one of my scripture stamps from Our Daiy Bread designs too.
I am linking this to the scripture Thursday over at
It is a really lovely blog and well worth a visit!

Maybe next week I can use my other Riley stamp , I will have to set myself a challenge to find a suitable scripture!

I was too late to link my card this week but I will link next week with [hopefully] my other card!

Thanks for visiting.

Hymn and Scripture Challenge - MAY THE MIND OF CHRIST MY SAVIOR

I had not heard this hymn before but thought the words were wonderful!
Patter has written a lovely post about this hymn and it is well worth a visit to read it at the link below.

The hymn reads like a beautiful prayer.

For my page I used the verse from Philippians 4:8, I have often thought how good it would be just to think on the things in the verse, how different our lives would be!
I can't seem to get good photos at the moment but if you click on the picture you should get a larger view.

I found a lovely version of the hymn on You tube so I hope the link works ok.

Looking forward to the next hymn, hope to post a little earlier next time!
