Camel and Leaping Frog

The inspiration for this camel illustration comes from the book of Matthew 19:25. This scripture reminds me of the economic times we are going through right now. It is so easy to get caught up in the materialism of this world and love our stuff more than God. This scripture helps me to refocus and realize the importance of what Jesus says! 

Leaping Frog
I love this scripture from the Old Testament. God is my strength and my shield! Knowing and trusting this helps me get through the day - and my heart leaps for joy!!

Wise owl, Singing bird and The Vine

This scripture is from the Old Testament - the book of Proverbs. It stuck out in my mind because of how hard headed I can be. I know God was trying to tell me something when I read this! We all need to listen to advice more and be willing to accept instruction. We associate owls with being wise (not sure why) but it was an obvious design choice for this scripture. 
Singing Bird
This little bird is my favorite! My daughter also loves its - because she loves to sing! Especially songs to worship our God.  Even though I can get discouraged with my life at times, I have to remember that the Lord has been good to me!
The vine
This scripture from John 15:5 is a reminder to me that I need to stay close to Jesus always. I don't do very well on my own!

Deer, Lion, Child and Eagle

I love reading Psalms! The book is filled with inspiration. When I read this scripture, I had to draw it. It took me a while to figure out how to make the words and letters work with the design. 
The lion was the obvious choice for this scripture. I need to read this scripture often to remind me that I am not alone when I face fearful situations and discouragement in my life. God is always with us!
This scripture from 3 John is so appropriate. We are all God's children!
Strength comes from knowing God and having faith that He will keep us strong!
