Challenge #79- Anything Goes

Welcome back to another week's challenge!  We have two more great sponsors this week, and hope that you will link up for the chance to win.  We didn't quite hit that 200 entries mark this week, but we're getting close.  We thank YOU for participating, and we praise God for providing for our needs.  Each of you has such specific and wonderful God-given talent, and it blesses us when you share your art with us.  We especially love seeing our word art used so beautifully, and seeing uplifting and encouraging sentiments on your creations.  Thank you for sharing with us, and for giving your best to the Lord as you create.  We do trust that we will hit that 200 mark soon.  How exciting!

Our word art/scripture for this week comes from Proverbs 31:10.  This chapter in God's Word describes the qualities of the Godly woman that we should ALL strive to attain.  God wants us to be strong, efficient, to enjoy His blessings, to have valor, and to be a blessing to our husbands and families.  Attaining these noble attributes is far more precious than gold, silver, diamonds or rubies.  It allows women to exude His goodness, and reflects on Him and His wonderful provisions in our lives.  Great joy is found in meeting these qualities, and it brings glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  One of our participants, Vickie O'Dell, shared the entire chapter on her blog describing the attributes of a virtuous Proverbs 31 woman verse by verse.  If you haven't read through this Psalm or studied it before, we encourage you to do so.  It helps define the type of woman God wants each of us to become, and will be a blessing to you.

You are welcome to save this week's free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are not required to use it in order to play along in our challenges. We welcome you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. 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. We hope you enjoy it!

Hi guys! Just want to thank everyone who visits us every week and tirelessly joining our Challenges here at WAW. I read your comments here and it truly brings a lot of joy and inspiration when I create. I am sure the rest of the DT's are going to agree that you all have encouraged us with wonderful feedback that truly warms our hearts. We appreciate all of you and please keep the comments coming.
