Paint Party Friday: Love One Another

I like carving my own stamps using 
erasers I buy from the bookstore.

I use the stamps to make backgrounds like this.
It's a lot of fun, and I don't need to think!
Or maybe I do-
I need to think like a kid,
and just ENJOY myself!

I used a piece of background for 
my journal page.
John 15:9 says that just as 
the Father loves Jesus,
so also does Jesus love us!
That is an amazing love,
faithful and forgiving,
working to bring us to heaven,
our true home!

Further down the same chapter, 
in verse 17, Jesus exhorts us
to love one another.
We love because He first loved us!

Would you like to help me get my art
into the big screens in
Times Square, New York City?
and click on "Collect Me".
I just need 77 votes!
Thank you!

That's one way of showing me love!
