Word Art Wednesday July 18







I'm blessed to be a guest designer this month for Word Art Wednesday.



This week's sentiment is a wonderful reminder of how God is in control.




I was thrilled to create with these words, because they were on my mind a couple of months ago!








When my youngest daughter was in the hospital, there were these two young birds that kept appearing outside her window.


They were so close, we felt as if we could touch them.


They were oblivious to us in the room as they cleaned themselves on the ledge inches away.



It was a joy for my outdoorsy daughter to see these birds~God brought nature to her...two stories up.



It was a comfort for me, because I recalled this verse.




Each time they appeared,




it was as if the Lord was telling me He was in control and He saw us just like He saw those birds.




I needed that reminder, I really did!



Why don't you join us at Word Art Wednesday and use the beautiful sentiment or bring your own uplifting one to share!


We would love to see you there!

  1. What a beautiful card----and a beautiful story! I need to remember that the Lord is in control! I know I often try to take the "wheel" or sit on His throne thinking I'm "God" and in control.....I need to step down and let him take over:)

    THANKS for the wonderful reminder! BEAUTIFUL! HUGS:)

  6. What a lovely story about the birds on your daughter's window sill. So many times God lets us know he is watching us, only most people are too blind to see it. Your card is beautiful.
