His Holy Name Challenge 2009


Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him all the earth. ~ Psalm 96:9

Today marks the start of a new challenge being hosted by my friend Patter Cross on her blog, Triple the Scraps, and at Splitcoaststampers. Every other Sunday afternoon, Patter will give participants a word for reflection. The words will be attributes of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. What an honor to participate with Patter. Her Scripture Challenge last year was an inspiration to me. She’s a beautiful lady, inside and out.

The first word that Patter felt called to reflect was HOLY. Our LORD is perfect, without blemish, righteous, pure and holy.  Ponder that, it’s a wonderful reflection for anytime, but especially a new year. As, I’ve prayed about this and thought about the challenge for several days (this isn’t a race and there is no time limit on your participation) the song with lyrics, ‘holiness is what I long for. holiness is what I need.’ kept coming to mind and I kept coming back to the book of Psalms. Such wonderful guidance in those pages for righteous, holy living. I settled in Psalm 96.

My page has the verse on the front and a note of heartfelt gratitude and journaling on the back. The color scheme is intentional and symbolizes my faith: black or white, no gray.  I believe that the Bible is the true, inspired, god-breathed, holy word of the LORD.  The life accounts and instruction contained are still as relevant and true today as they were when they were shared by the prophets and Jesus, himself so many years ago.

ll be making 6×6 pages of reflection this year, and I’ll be presenting them on this Frame Your Imagination stand from Taylored Expressions. I’ve just ordered mine, and I’ll have it decorated and ready for display with the next posting in 2 weeks.  I had something similar that I was using last year with Divine Design projects and, alas, the spring coil that held the pages together met it’s untimely death in the hands of a darling 8 year old. So sad. However, the new stands that Taylor Expression now sells use page protectors to frame your project (sold separately) eliminating holes and allowing for easy removal and switching out.

I’ve got a busy week scheduled here, including a few great giveaways! See you tomorrow!  🙂

  • Cardstock: Poison Ivory, Black Prism & patterned paper (CTMH)
  • Accs: computer font, mini black rhinestones, bazzill blooms and making memories big brad

  1. Oh your words are SO beatiful and inspiring! Love the reason you chose black and white! How perfect! I guess I chose black and white and didn’t realize why. I guess God led us in the same direction! And hey, I added red–I guess for Christ’s blood shed for me! 🙂

    I love your page, your scripture, and I am sure your journaling is wonderful! I also ordered the same holder you did! I can’t wait to get it! Have a blessed night!

  2. What a great, inspirational challenge! I love this idea! 🙂

  3. Oh Lori, I LOVE IT!!! That is absolutely beautiful. I love reading what you have written. I love the song that you mentioned. We sing that at church often. I love it when God brings a particular scripture to mind. That is why we “hide His word in our hearts” so He can reveal it to us when we need to hear from Him!
