Welcome to my blog and I have a wonderful sweet gal Zenita Smith as my guest today for our FaItH SoNgS For His Glory series! :) Check out her project below! :) Thanks Zenita! :)
So thankful to be a guest designer on Kari’s blog (PurpleFuntastic Creations) today, not only to show you a layout that I have made but to be able to give a testimony too. I guess I need to introduce myself first. My name is Zenita Smith aka ScrappinwithZ, and I live in Southeast Missouri, but first and above all I’m a Christian that loves to tell other’s about our Savior!!! I’ve been married for almost 28 years and the mother of four fabulous sons and mother in law to two fantastic women. In just a few short months I’ll also be Nana to our first grandchild (hopefully a girl). I’ve been scrapbooking over 10 years and would have to say I’m addicted to the craft!!! A person that scrapbooks can tell so many stories with just a few pictures on a page.
We were asked to give a testimony using a song that really means something to us. I had problems trying to pick just one song so I kind of combined two songs, “Amazing Grace” and “The Old Rugged Cross.” To me without that cross we wouldn’t have amazing grace. It just boggles my mind that with Jesus dying on that cross we can have such amazing grace. When I read Ephesians 1:7-8 (KJV) 7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;” I get goosebumps thinking what that blood stands for and how unworthy each of us are.
We are all wretches but though the blood of Jesus Christ we are saved. Like the words of Amazing Grace, “I once was lost but now am found, Was blind, but now, I see….T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…and Grace will lead us home. …The Lord has promised good to me…” That promise was made on the cross, and this is why to me both songs go together.
The layout I made for today I actually made a few years ago and it’s very simple but I think the cross says it all. The little pictures around the page tells of some of the history of the cross and of the site of the cross. This cross is located just outside of Wicliffe, KY on the banks of the Mississippi River, which has a special meaning to me. My husband is a riverboat captain on the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers and it’s like this cross to me is there keeping him safe with the promise of Jesus Christ.
I hope and pray that each of you have a special relation with Jesus Christ our Savior.
