Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop Day 2!

Yay, it's Day Two of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Leah's blog. But if you want to start from the very beginning, go to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and start hopping from there. You don't want to miss any of the treats in store for you!

This month is a truly special blog hop because we are focusing on scripture. As you know, Korin's tag line for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is "sharing the love of Christ through paper crafting." I love that about SNSS; it's one of the main reasons I'm so happy to be part of the design team. SNSS carries a wonderful assortment of scripture stamp sets and stamp sets with scriptures as part of the greeting selections, all currently 25% off!

The set I chose for my card is His Eye is on The Sparrow. I just love birds, so I'm naturally drawn to stamp sets that feature birds. This one is sooooo beautiful and has many lovely greetings to choose from. Mine features the scripture quote: But even the very hairs of your head are numbered. Fear not, therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12:7

There's a song that's been on my mind ever since I started working on this card and with this particular scripture. It's called He Knows My Name.

I have a maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in His hands

He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

I have a father
He calls me his own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go

He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

I know it sometimes seems like God is not listening and that he couldn't possibly care about us if all these terrible things are happening. But it's not true! God IS listening and He IS with you always, blessing you in ways that you cannot even know. Never doubt that, and pray for Him to let you know that He is there and does care. He will answer your prayer!

Now, your next stop is Jeanette's blog. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!
