Challenge Weeks #330-331 Anything Goes

Hello, friends!  Today's post is going to be a bit brief.  I'm just getting over an awful stomach flu.  I apologize that I don't have a card to share, and I hope to get it up later this week.  What a blessing to have such an AMAZING Design Team to count on.  Their samples are amazing. I'm also going to be late with this week's devotional.   I do apologize, but I realize that "the show must go on".  I wanted to make sure that the challenge starts on time.

The scripture file for this challenge is from James 1:5 which says, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him".  The most important thing we can learn from this verse is that God gives us wisdom, and that it's quite alright to ask Him for it.  Any time you are troubled or uncertain about what to do in a situation, you are free to go directly to God for the widsom you need.  Nothings is ever too big or too small for Him.  

As always, you are welcome to save the free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are never required to use it in order to play along in our challenges.   We welcome you share your all your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. This includes any type of altered or digital art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to five (5) projects each week for a total of ten (10) per two-week challenge. The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning.  It is our desire that God's Word will be a blessing and encouragement to you as we share it. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to our guidelines.  Please know that this doesn't mean we are judging anyone.  We're simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!

that it will be a blessing to you.

In reading the challenge rules I am a little bit confused as to how many entries are allowed. Is it 5 entries per challenge period of 2 weeks, or is it 5 entries per week, for a total of 10? Thanks so much, and thank you to the design team who always does such a beautiful job.

May I just say what a comfort to uncover someone who really
knows what they are talking about on the web. You certainly know how to bring a problem to
light and make it important. A lot more people should read
this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular because you certainly possess
the gift.
