This is the verse that my Stampin' Sister, Peggysue, has chosen for this week's contemplation.
Genesis 6:20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive.
This scripture made me think of my own two dogs, Bear and Hershey, They both absolutely hate storms. I have observed that they seem to know when a storm is coming even before I can see the clouds. They start getting agitated,and will start whining. It makes me wonder how they know that the storm is coming. I have also noticed a change in the behavior in the birds outside my window. They seem to be more restless before the storm, even before I can see the signs of a storm.
I think it is amazing, in this scripture that God placed a knowledge in all the animals that they had to go to Noah. Noah didn't have to search for them, and go out on an animal finding expedition. The animals just knew to go to him. It made me wonder if they heard God's voice and were listening to His directions. It also made me wonder what is God telling me this week. Am I listening for His voice, or am I too caught up in my own little world to listen?
Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry.
Peggysue's challenge is: Use any type of animal, bird or bug in your creation.
My little critters are two little butterflies. The big one is from a Mark's Finest Papers set that was released last month called DAFFODIL GREETINGS, and the little butterfly that matches the big one is going to be released this week in a Mark's Finest Papers set called SCENIC SELECTIONS.
I shared last week about how to do embossed pounded flowers technique. Yesterday I was playing around with this technique using leaves. After I smooshed the leaves, I used the ink spray smashed technique. Then I embossed it. It made a very interesting design. That is why I went with little critters so you could see the background too.
For my card I used one of the sentiments from Doodle Pantry's set called Noah's Ark.
I love this sentiment. The promise of God that I have been holding onto this week is that He will never leave us or forsake us.
