This month's Crafter of Faith' s challenge is to use something we have saved.

 July 2019: Hostess Sue (bensarmom)

Scripture: Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

This design paper I used I have saved in my stash for quite sometime. Because of the gold foil sea designs on it, I was waiting for the perfect challenge. So, I decided I would use it for this challenge. I love to save seashells, and consider them God's treasures from the ocean. I also loved that this paper had an anchor on it. So I also used the Tim Holtz stamps of the anchor and the sand dollar because the anchor is such a symbol of hope and I remembered that the ledge  the sand dollar reflects Christ's life and death.

The Legend of the Sand Dollar

There’s a lovely little legend
That I would like to tell,
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely
You’ll see that you find here,
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman’s spear.

On one side the Easter Lily,
Its center is the star,
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia
Etched on the other side,
Reminds us of His birthday
Our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open
And here you will release,
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol
Christ left for you and me,
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all eternity. 

Here is my card::

So I am letting this card and its symbols be my words that "Jesus is Lord", that He died for my sins, that He is risen from the dead, and He will come again. I believe this with all my heart and profess it in any and every way that I can.
