Challenge #55 - Anything Goes

This week we woulde like to wish everyone a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!  We have been focussing a lot this month on thankfulness.  As we all know, there is always MUCH for which we can be grateful.  Our verse for this week is Psalm 34:1, which says "I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth."  You can kinda chuckle when you think about all the delicious food that will be in our mouths this week (that's certainly one way to have His praise in our mouths...LOL), but on a more serious note, we should always remember that we are actually capable of blessing the Lord.  Most often, we think of how HE blesses US. But when we continually keep His praise in our mouths (meaning we speak of Him, praise Him, thank Him, pray to Him, etc.) we are able to bless Him.  He sure does an awful lot to bless US.  Shouldn't we do the same for Him when we have the opportunity?  I hope that YOU will bless Him at all times, and keep His praise continually in your mouth (and.....a little bit of mashed potatoes and some pumpkin pie in our mouths as well...LOL).  There is SO MUCH for which can be thankful and give Him thanks!

We had one of our highest weeks ever in participation this past week (praise God!), and we really enjoy having you all play along and share the art God lays on your heart to create.  We just love visiting your sweet blogs and seeing how creative you all can be.  It blesses us, and we are truly SO grateful for each of you.  Let's see if we can hit 100 entries this week.  That would be SO exciting!  If we can hit that mark, I will add a secondary (and very AWESOME) prize to next week's challenge.

As always, feel free to save this free weekly word art/scripture to your computer. You are welcome to use it in your entry, but not required to do so. As long as you use an encouraging or uplifting sentiment on your project, that is fine. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5). The more, the merrier. We just hope that God's Word will be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".
Here is this week's free scripture/word art file. We hope that it will be a blessing to you.

This week, we are blessed to have

I would love to play with this Bible verse, but I cannot work with a .png file! I have been so frustrated not being able to print it out as I would like. Is it possible to make it .jpg or is there anybody who can instruct me how to convert? Last week all I got was a black screen after trying to print out the tekst.

Thanks for hosting WAW, the challenges really focus my bible study and help me meditate on the word. Your kind comments each week are a blessing to me.

Just yesterday I was reading about St. Cecilia who is the patron saint of musicians because she was always praising God! Even on her deathbed! She was martyred for her faith. Oh to have a faith so real that we would praise God with every breath and our last breath too! Thank you for this wonderful party! Patsy from
