WAW: "Faith"

Sorry, a day late...... but nonetheless.... here is the Word Art Wednesday post for this week.

Before I start writing about the WAW thing, I hope you had a great Christmas time. Hope you remembered why we celebrate this. Not for the food and the gifts. But because of Jesus Christ who came to earth to be our Savior and our Shepherd. For me, not being an American, I just don't get the whole commercial stuff about buying gifts for Christmas. Maybe because I am Dutch, but I do know a part of our Dutch folks do buy gifts. Maybe it's because I am too down to earth and don't get why people do this. Don't get me wrong, everyone has to do what they want to do ;)   But for me, the most biggest gift we got, is in the person of baby Jesus. Nothing else can fill the whole in the hearts of men.
Well... that said.... I'll continue the WAW post.

This weeks Word Art is from Helen Keller.

And here is the tag I made, using my Big Shot this time. I don't use it that often, so I wanted to incorporate it into my tag :D

And of course..... a video ;-)

Wendy...another gorgeous tag! I love the embossed "quilting" design and beautiful colors. Love listening to your video tutorials and getting to watch you create. So fun!

You are so right about the commercialism and gift-giving thing. We really don't over-do this, and we focus on the true meaning of Christmas. I think the tradition started because of the wise men who brought gifts to the newborn King of Kings, so we feel we are to share gifts as well. But it got carried away at some point. Thanks for sharing this.
Love you!

Wendy, what a blessing your post is today! I think the commercialization of Christmas has really gotten out of hand. It has been part of the American scene for as long as I've been around (78 years). In the past the gifts were simple. We in my family try to keep things simple and focused on the real meaning of Christmas. Your tag is gorgeous.

Wendy, I just so love your work. In these last years as I see people going into debt for mountains of uneeded gifts I think it is out of control.
I could listen to you all day and I'm learning so much from you.
Happy New Year!
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.
