FAITH, HOPE and LOVE
“…now abide FAITH, HOPE and LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
An awful lot of things in our world are transient, temporary or disposable…sadly…from friends…to jobs…to possessions. Too many things cannot be counted on…
…but there is something that NEVER fails!
It’s a guaranteed promise!
And that one thing that never can fail…
The genuine article–I’m not talking about counterfeit love. But the real thing!
Found in the Father’s heart…for us!
And sometimes found in the hearts of those rare and special people who care selflessly…more for others than themselves…
I hope you know someone like that….
…and that you desire to be one of those genuinely loving people…not with an agenda…not with a selfish motive…
…but giving love because the receiver deserves no less than the love God desires for you to give to others!
I’m offering you some sketches to download if you’d like them, so that you can make some of these paper cones as gifts or favours, or decorations.
There are 2 designs on one page–you may download and print the sketches on standard 8 and 1/2 by 11 inch copy paper, card stock or scrap-booking paper. Then simply cut the page in half and you have the foundations for 2 paper cones.
Fold each design in half and pinch that centre point.
From that point, fold over a small section to ease the process of rolling the paper into a cone…
…align the high points, and using a glue stick, fasten it closed.
Now you can punch 2 holes on either side and thread on some ribbon and embellishments.
The next page offers a collection of several Bible passages on LOVE.
You can simply copy, and then cut the paper to separate each verse, forming strips. I found it worked well to fold each strip in half, gather them all together to form a bundle, then wrap them loosely in a pretty piece of tissue paper, nestling the verses and tissue down inside the paper cone.
A pretty little gift of love from your heart…
Hope you’ll relish and appreciate the LOVE of GOD, determining to walk in His ways, loving Him…and joyfully reflecting His love toward others!
“…what does the LORD your God require of you,
but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him,
to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes…”
HE deserves no less!
Thanks for the encouraging words- Thanks for sharing the cone idea- I hope to travel to Moldova in the spring And always like to take the sisters something– Those would be great for traveling because I can fold them once I am there… With love, lou ; )
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. Proverb 3:6
