ODBDSLC #234 Sketch Challenge

Good morning!
The challenge starting today is a sketch (see below).  I made mine a square.
ODBD Dies: Beautiful Borders

I stamped the Amazing Grace hymn on a piece of the Shabby Rose collection paper.  I also stamped the How Sweet The Sound sentiment on the Shabby Rose.  All the decorative papers today are from the Shabby Rose collection. 
Other embellishments are pre-made roses and leaves and some sheer ribbon.  I sewed each layer to matching card stock then foam taped it all together.

Matthew 10:42 And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.  Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High...
God has our reward.  We may receive reward here on earth but His reward in heaven is much greater.  Seek His Kingdom first, give your way to Him, live your life according to His word and always go about doing good like Jesus may not get any thanks or recognition here on earth but you can be sure that God sees everything and He has treasures for you in heaven.  After all, your life after this short one here on earth, is for eternity...that is the life you should be working to receive rewards in. This life is over in an instant compared to eternity...what have you decided about Jesus?  He is either who He said He is, the son of God, the Messiah, the way, the truth and the life or He is the biggest liar and nut case in have to decide.
When your life ends here on earth, the only thing God will ask you is "Did you believe my Son, Jesus is the Savior and rose from the dead for all man".  Pray right now... Lord, forgive me of my sin and come live in my heart.  I believe You are the Christ and You died for my sins then rose again never to die again.  Make my heart new and help me to live for You.
If you don't have a Bible, contact me and I'll see what can be done.

So soft and pretty! The sewing is such a great detail too! Wonderful take on the sketch. And it seems everywhere I look I am being reminded oh His grace - definitely not a coincidence!
