Word Art Wednesday: Seasons of Life (FREE DIGI)

Time for this week's Word Art Wednesday challenge!  Our featured word art is so appropriate during the changing season.  Karen Murray of PaperCraft Memories who designs our scripture graphics always does such a lovely job and I feel blessed that she also designs for Daydream Designs. Isn't this week's graphic gorgeous?
Please check out our challenge details and the other design team inspirations on our home blog, Word Art Wednesday.  Add your inspiration for us and earn the chance to win some great prizes from our sponsors.  

The cyclical shift in our seasons is always a glorious reminder of God's sovereign control of our universe.  The landscape is redressed in breathtaking color.  One of my most favorite things about living in Missouri is the variety of colorful trees in the fall.

Any road traveled brings a delightful panorama of color. I've always loved fall although now I experience some bittersweet memories as fall brings another anniversary of my dad's passing from this life to heaven's glory.  Yet fall reminds me too that every season of life has a purpose.  We saw God exalted and glorified in my dad's last days, and I know that my loving and sovereign God had it all under control.  I can't wait to see the landscape of heaven and all the amazing colors my earth-bound-color-blind dad is now experiencing! 

My DT sample for this week's challenge showcases one of my newest fall sets, Autumn Blessings.  It's just a simple wreath of leaves, but to me it represents a circle of changing beauty we know as children of God.  Season to season, God brings changes to our world, to our lives.  Each change has purpose.  I don't believe in luck, karma, coincidence or happenstance.  I believe in the sovereignty of God who controls each change and brings purpose through it.

We've certainly seen a lot of change in our family in the last three years.  But we've seen God's hand in every single one of them.  I'm truly grateful for God's blessings, and I trust Him through all the changes in my life. 

This close up of my image shows how I created dimension on the wreath by cutting out a duplicate image of the acorns and leaves to the side of them.  I just popped those up on foam dots. 

Sets Used:

2 color images and 6 sentiments / JPEG and PNG

10 digi sheets / JPEG only / 300 dpi / resizable

May your autumn blessings be abundant!
