Inspirational Sunday Post

Fear not, precious flock, from the cross to the throne
From death into life He went for His own
All power in earth, all power above
Is given to Him for the flock of His love

Only believe,
Only believe,
All things are possible
Only believe.

The words above are from an old gospel song written in the early part of the 20th century and much loved through generations.  The simple chorus is a beautiful melody and speaks of faith in the wonder-working power of the Lord Jesus Christ that has touched my own life and family again and again.

The card above features the brand new stamp set, Just Believe, which I just love.  It has the lovely words seen in the card above as well as a "friends," "thank you," and "just for you," the lovely plant silhouettes as shown above, and four other plant and flower images.  So this set has lots of versatility.  For the card above, I wanted a sort of ethereal look, one of soft beauty.  You can't quite see it in my photo, but the plants and the little Bashful Blue tab have a soft mist of Vanilla Smooch Spritz that gives them a very soft shine, a bit magical, a bit other-worldly.  At least that is the look I was trying to achieve.  I felt that look perfectly matched the words, "Some things have to be believed to be seen."

I want to leave you today with the remaining lyrics from Only Believe and hope you enjoy them as they inspire you and help you to look up.
Verse 2
Fear not, precious flock, He goeth ahead,
Your Shepherd selects the path you must tread;
The waters of Mara He'll sweeten for thee
He drank all the bitter in Gethsemane

Verse 3
Fear not, precious flock, whatever your lot;
He enteres all rooms, the doors being shut.
He never forsakes, He never is gone
So count on His presence in darkness and dawn.

Only believe, only believe;
All things are possible, only believe;
Only believe, only believe;
All things are possible, only believe.
