Les Fleurs – Card Collection and Headbands

This 2017 collection was inspired by the beauty of the Psalms and the promises God speaks to us through them. Psalm 103:15-17 says this:

“As for man, his days are like grass,
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.

But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear Him
and His righteousness with their children’s children –
with those who keep His covenant
and remember to obey His precepts.”

Life flies by with its joys and its challenges, but God’s love is eternal, everlasting, and ever faithful towards us.

Psalm 5-11.jpg

Lord, we rejoice because You are fully trustworthy and faithful.
We shout Your praises joyfully because You are our defender.
We love Your Name, and it gives us gladness in our heart.

You, O Lord, are our Joy, you are our Assurance,
You are our Victory, You are our Shield.

Thank you for shining Your light in our lives every day.
Let us abide in You always. We love You.

Amen.

psalm-65-5

God, you are my hope
You are the hope of all the earth
There is no place where Your hope cannot be found

When we call, You answer
You do mighty works according to Your righteousness
You are for us, and Your work is always good

Thank you for the eternal hope You have given us in Christ
Thank you for Your faithfulness
Let Your righteousness and Your hope be seen in every nation

Amen.
