Postcards From Heaven, Block Five, May From Jenny

It's time for another free block from our Postcards From Heaven BOM!  This month is Jenny's, and it's another gorgeous design from her.  

How stunning is that!  Don't you just love the colors, and of course that our Lord gives us sweet rest to rejuvenate our minds and bodies.  I remember reading a very old Christian book - by Hannah Whitall Smith - where she said we can rest in Jesus as easily as we rest our tired bodies on our mattresses.  We don't lay there awake all night, worried that our mattress will drop us on the floor, we just relax all of our muscles and trust that our beds will hold us up.  In the same way, our Lord and Savior holds us up, and we can trust that He will never let us fall.  I've never forgotten that!!

My version, of course, is in redwork - 

I've used scripture from the King James Bible, and stitched everything, using either one or two strands.

Get the design from Jenny's blog and craftsy shop - just click >>HERE<<.  

If you would also like to use the King James scripture, I've uploaded a file to my craftsy shop with the words only.  You can get that >>HERE<<.

It is our hope and prayer that you are blessed as you stitch these promises from our Lord.  A gift from our heart, to your hearts.

What a beautiful teaching about rest, Allie. Thank you! xxxx

I think I prefer the King James version, but I was brought up on that version. Love your stitching, Allie. How did you achieve the "bolder" look of "sweet"? Did you just increase the strands for that word?

Thank you very much :)

Gorgeous, as always, both of you. I love how neatly you both stitch. I'll not get that neat, ever most likely, but I'm liking them each time I finish anyway. =) Such a wonderful scripture this month! I love the lesson you shared from your friend, too. What a great way to look at things.
