Challenge Weeks #338-#339 - Anything Goes

Welcome back by again, everyone!  We're so glad you're here and that you've chosen to play along with us.  We have an AWESOME sponsor....the fabulous Lawn Fawn.  We also have some wonderful inspiration from our Design Team.  We thank you for stopping by to fellowship with us, have some fun, and share your amazing creations in our challenge. 

The awesome word art for this challenge is a great verse (Psalm 1:1) for Father's Day, and you're welcome to save this free image to use on your Father's Day cards.  This verse says "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful".  It reminds us of how a good man (woman, child, etc.) is to live their life.  God's word makes it very clear that when we choose to live a separated life and live for Him, we will be blessed.  It also reminds us that when we hang around ungodly people, we begin to listen to them and their unwise advice.  We also tend to sin more when we're surrounding ourselves with other people who aren't walking the Christian walk.  Their bad habits can quickly rub off on us, and it's very important to hang out with people who will encourage us in our Christian walk, set a good example for us, and encourage us to get right with God and live a wholesome life....a BLESSED LIFE that comes only through living for the Lord, Jesus Christ.   Yes, we have to live in the world and engage in the world; but don't have to become LIKE the world.  We are warned that we need to live a separated life (2 Corinthians 2:17), and like many verses from God's precious word, it comes with a promise.....being blessed.  "BLESSED IS THE MAN" - I know that I sure enjoy the #blessedlife - how about you?

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) entries 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.
