1 John 4:7-8

Back in January Lori Craig challenged us to join her for a year long challenge called Divine Design 2008-the Bible verse challenge. The challenge is a way for participants to get into God's word, memorize Bible verses, and hold each other accountable. All you need to do is focus on one Bible verse/passage a month and make a project with it. What a great idea! Thank you so much for this challenge Lori. I know it will change the lives of the people involved and others too!

Here were Lori's instructions in case you are interested in joining also (It isn't too late!):
We'll each create an on-going altered journal, rolodex card, scrapbook page, ATC or recipe card project... Each month we will choose a verse and get to stamping. We'll add that piece to our collection. We are going to work on the 8th of each month, at the end of the year, we'll have a wonderful keepsake to inspire or gift to give.
a few items of housekeeping
1. Must have a Bible verse printed, stamped, hand-written or computer generated as a focus of your project.
2. Upload with the scripture reference as your project title (i.e. John 1:14)
3. Use the Bible Verse Challenge keyword(This is for sharing on Splitcoast): BVC08 (same keyword all year) - While I do appreciate all kinds of inspirational messages, poems and quotes, for the purpose of this challenge, please respect the scripture reference guideline. Do not use this keyword if you have not used a Biblical scripture on your project.

My collection will be a 6 x 6 book. I will coil bind it at the end of the year to hang on the wall.
I am late for sharing this on the 8th of the month, but I am still going to share. February I decided to stick with the traditional theme of love...only not the love between two people, but the love of God towards us and our responsibility to love others.I already have this verse memorized because I learned it in a song as a kid, but it is so good to have the reminder. God loves us so much that He sent his son to die for our sins. We need to pass that love on to others and not just keep it to ourselves.
Is there someone that you need to show love to? Someone you might have a hard time loving? I have found that usually the people that we find it hardest to love are those that need to feel God's love the most. Who are you going to show love to today?

Great layout Jen. I love these verses. We love because of God's love. How wonderful is that.
