Valentine card!

I know...we've just had Christmas and the next thing on the cardmaking calendar is Valentine's Day!  I have made this clean and simple card for 2 challenges -
The PTI stamp set used here is 2010 Love Tags and the same for the matching envelope.

And now for Thought for the Week - Psalm 5.  This is a morning prayer for deliverance and protection.  Look especially at verse 12 'For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass (surround) him as with a shield'.  Who are the 'righteous'?  Is it people who pay money into the church, or are kind to their neighbours, or who wouldn't gossip about anybody?  No, the Bible makes it clear that the righteous are only righteous because they have asked the Lord Jesus Christ into their heart to be their Saviour and they are depending on Him to cleanse them in His atoning blood.  Nobody in this world can be 'righteous' without Christ.  And look! God promises that when we trust Christ, He will bless us by surrounding us with His love, mercy, grace and favour.  He will protect us with His shield of favour when the devil tries to harm us; He will protect us when people try to hurt us.  What a great Saviour we have!

God bless!
