Godly Woman Canvas

Wow, I was a Pinterest Queen this past weekend.  I'm leasing a booth from one of our Thrift Stores, so I had to come up with some inventory QUICK!!  Right now I'm really into "Word" art.  I decided to create a cross and fill it with traits a Godly woman strives to be/do.

God. God loves and He first loved.  The love He expresses above, in the book of Hosea, runs throughout His love letter to us in the Bible, culminates at the Cross, and will last for eternity--and that's not just romantic rhetoric. ...more
