Word Art Wednesday: Sheep in His Pasture (FREE Digi Stamp)

It's Wednesday...and I'm excited to share with you this week's graphic for our challenge.  You are welcome to use the graphic or you may create a project that serves to encourage someone and link it to participate.  Check out the details and our sponsor on the Word Art Wednesday blog.

Our Sponsor:
I'm so excited about this week's sponsor.  Deedee Anderson has her own artist landing page on my store Daydream Designs, and I'm thrilled to have her.  Her images are sweetly whimsical and always uplifting and wholesome.

To win some of Deedee's delightful digis, participate in our challenge!

Our Inspirational Scripture:
I found Karen Murray's word art so inspiring!  I've always loved Karen's work and appreciated her as an artist when I operated my first Daydream Designs store.  I'm delighted....ecstatic....jumping up and down to announce she will again be designing sets for my newest store.  She is a delight to work with and I love her word art. 

My DT Sample:

Throughout scripture sheep are used to represent God's people.  We do fit the analogy well for several reasons.  Without a shepherd, sheep can't survive.  The shepherd leads them to green pastures and quiet rivers for food and drink.  Sheep wander without the direction of the shepherd.  They are inherently "lost" if the shepherd doesn't direct them to stay in the flock.  We are so like sheep!  We need our Good Shepherd, our Savior for the same reasons.

Without Jesus we are lost--bewildered and blackened by sin.  We can enjoy safe pasture, amazing abundance and joy when we trust the Shepherd to provide and to guide us.

I started a digi set of sheep a long time ago, and for some reason hadn't finished it.  When I read our scripture verse for the WAW challenge this week, I decided to get it out, dust it off and finish it.  I also created a coordating set of Scripture verses.  The images come in outline or color, each sold separately.  

My little sheep make me happy and they serve as a reminder that I'm totally dependent upon my God.  I cannot imagine grazing again on the parched weeds of the world when I'm offered the lush, sweet blessings of grace in the pasture of the Good Shepherd!

  6. This card is so precious, Di, both in how it is made and in the amazing message it carries. Thank you for sharing your heart in this!

  7. Diane,
    This is just so very beautiful with a soft lasting impact. The Sunday School class I teach (6-8) are studying the 23rd Psalm. I will use this digi to make book marks so they can place them into the new testaments they received. A lot of these children are fresh from the world. Thank you for sharing it with us. Your work always blesses me especially your DT card for this weeks WAW. Blessings,


Your comments bless me so much! Thank you for taking the time to leave them.
