Welcome to Paper Tree House Studio's Friends, Love, and Faith Blog Hop. As a paper artist, it’s so fun to get together and inspire one another through things such as blog hops. This post is not only meant to inspire you through artwork, eye candy and prizes but also through the message.
I was so excited to find out the theme of this hop because Isaiah 40:31 is and has always been my life verse. What does that mean? For me, it’s the verse that stood out to me as a young girl (only 11 years old.) That’s when it became very real to me and I began to understand that no matter what I am going through, when I spend time with Jesus, reading and praying, He is faithful and He gives me peace and strength. Over all these years, I have come back to this verse time and time again to be reminded that no matter how hopeless the situation seems, He will carry me through and give me strength. There is nothing quite like having that kind of peace in your life; knowing that whatever comes your way, God will help you through it.
If hope and pray that this verse has been and will continue to be an inspiration to you.
On to the hop
Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God. United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. If you are hopping with us, you should have hopped over from Nancy. If you happened to just come across this post and you want to join in on the fun, make sure you jump over to the beginning so that you do not miss out:

We're celebrating the theme of faith and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:
"...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

I created this card with my friend Jaclyn in mind. She is a young mom of three children who has been through the most tragic accident. Yet, her and her family continue to trust in God as she gains small bits and pieces of her life back every day. Their lives are full of gratefulness and thanksgiving. It’s so inspiring!Supplies: Cardstock – Bazzill; Pattern Paper – October Afternoon (Thrift Shop); Spellbinders Die template – S4-310 Labels Eighteen; Ribbon – May Arts; Brad – 7 Gypsies; Button – Grandma’s drawer
As well as the fabulous prizes listed above, I wanted to offer you a chance at a little something myself. Pictured here are some Pink Paislee Rub-ons, a Maya Road mini bird album and some Doodlebug Design brads. This RAK will close at the same time as the hop. Please be sure to contact me if you are a winner. My last blog winner has still not contacted me and if I can’t get in touch with her, I will be offering up that RAK again soon.
The next stop on this blog hop is Rachelle. Have fun!
God bless your day!
