Anything Goes - Weeks #593-594

Welcome back, everyone!  Thanks for joining us as we begin another FUN challenge with lots of great things happening as we begin.  Please refresh your memory on the rules.  Sadly, I had to remove entries that were exceeding our weekly limits.  We absolutely love having you share your art with us, but the rules must be upheld in order for fairness to prevail.  Thanks so much for taking the time to read through our rules so that you'll understand how things work.  We want to give everyone the same fair opportunity to win the prizes given by the support of our very generous sponsors.  Thanks so much for playing along with us.  We look forward to seeing what you will create to share with us.

This delightfully sweet piece of scriptural word art was created using Psalm 119:103.  I just love the little bees and darling leaves that decorate these encouraging words.  It reads, "How sweet are thy words unto my taste!  yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth".  Well, I don't know about you; but I think honey is just about one of the sweetest things on earth.  Yet, I can honestly say that it pales in comparison with the sweet words of wisdom and love given to us in the Bible.  The more we read and learn from God's Word, the sweeter and sweeter it grows.  The simple truth is that you actually can get too much honey.  In fact, I've "ruined" a good cup of tea (more than once) by adding too much honey.  However, I can honestly say that I've NEVER gotten too much of God's Word.  The more I read of His Word and know/learn of it, the sweeter it becomes and the more it blesses and enriches my life.  If you don't fully know the sweetness of God's Word, I strongly encourage you to seek it often and let it enrich your life.  The wisdom God has for us in the holy words He's given us is truly the sweetest thing we will ever know in this life.  Praise God for this SWEET gift.

As always, you are welcome to save the word art to your computer; but you are never required to use it in order to play along or to win in our challenges.  We welcome you to share all of your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family friendly.  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 an encouragement to you as we share it.  If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules found under our Page tab marked "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 not.  We are simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules.  Please let us know if you have any questions about anything; and thank you for your understanding and participation.
