The song ANCIENT WORDS, sung by Michael W. Smith is a song that my VIEW Group loves to sing. What is a VIEW group? At our church we break up into small groups that meet in members homes on Sunday nights. We Visit, Instruct, Encourage, and Worship. (VIEW). When my grandparents were young, they had a Sunday night worship service, but meeting in people's homes would have been so strange to them. I really love the fellowship of my VIEW group, so I guess SOME change can be good.
Holy words, long preserved
For our walk in this world
They resound with God's own heart
Oh let the ancient words impart
Words of Life, Words of Hope
Give us Strength, help us cope
In this world where e'er we roam
Ancient words will guide us home
Holy words of our Faith
handed down to this age
Came to us through sacrifice
Oh heed the faithful words of Christ.
Ancient Words, ever true
Changing me and changing you.
We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart.
I used my computer to print the words to this song onto a piece of parchment. I then took a tea bag and stained it. I tore the edges and added chalk to the torn edges to distress it further. The cameo is sneek peek at a set that will be released next week by Mark's Finest Paper called Grandma's Boudior. I was blessed to have jewelry from my 4 great grandmothers. The actual cost of the jewelry would probably be less than $25, but to me it priceless. They didn't have carved cameos from Italy, but what they gave me means so much more, they gave me their FAITH.

This was for today's sketch challenge at SCS which was based on a card I made 2 years ago. What an honor. Thanks Roxie!!
