The Greatest Love Project

The Greatest is Love...

One of my favorite Scriptures is 1 Corinthians 13:13. Now all of chapter 13 is amazing but verse 13 stands out to me and has. As a little girl growing up Catholic (I no longer am) a lot of the Word of God was taught to me in song; it was how I memorized scripture and it was the first way that I learned host to communicate to God. Since prayer was about reciting Hail Marys' and Our Fathers, I used to sing song to God about just about everything. 1 Corinthians 13:13 is one of those songs that I remember singing in my childhood.

The New King James (NKJV) says of this verse, "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." The New Living Translation (NLT) reads as, "Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love."

My project today is centered on this scripture. I made an accordion style mini album (my fav as of late) using Recollections, Union Square 12x12 collection and MME, The Station 6x6 pad. I inked every edge with Studio G pigment ink. and embellished the cover with some additional Twinery twine, and Dress-it-up buttons.

To this day I never ceases to amaze me how God will get our ear. How He will grab our attention to get a Word to us. I love this Scrioture because it speaks of what is most important to God. Verse one of this chapter says that if we do not have Love, then we are nothing but noisemakers. People blowing a lot of hot air, sounding good but not meaning anything we say. Or as the old folks would say, "Saying a whole lot about nothing". It is love that moves people to action, loves that restores and forgives, love that will move Heaven and Earth to get to us.

I pray this project is an inspiration to you and speaks to your heart.
