I received a beautiful 'HOPE' stamp today from a lovely lady in the States. I found the vintage image through Helle's Pinterest board.
I just love working with these colors. It speaks for itself, how it was made, I think.
Then this one is also made with patterned paper.
The third one.
Talking about hope - it's very important to have Biblical Hope in our lifes. I read just recently that Hope is necessary if we are to maintain both faith and love. Hope is not optional, it is essential to the fullness of the Christian life. People say 'where there is life, there is hope', and the opposite is also true, where there is hope, there is life! Being hopeless is a very sad condition. Just yesterday I answered the door to a young man who we recently invited to our Church Service where He could hear about the God of Hope. He was just as empty as he was when we last saw him and yet God is still holding out His arms to draw all to Him to give us new hope and life in Jesus Christ who took away the wall that separates us from Him by carrying away our sins on the Cross. Why is it so difficult, for people to say 'yes' to God. We are still praying that many who are hopeless will become desperate enough to accept the Grace of God and be made new!
