Wisdom has built her house
This is a 5x5 canvas I made for a Ladies Bible Retreat that I recently attended. I make cards every year to give to the ladies for encouragement. A couple of years ago my friend, Martha, who organizes this wonderful event, asked me to make some gift items and to show the ladies how they could make them and use them to bless others. I am studying Proverbs in one the Bible classes I attend, and we came upon the Proverb 9:1 and I thought of doing this canvas based on that first part of the verse. We would all do well to build our houses with God's wisdom, rather than just beams and boards. I thought this canvas would be a nice reminder of how even though material blessings are nice and are from God, the real value is simply in the wisdom he gives us.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
Here are a few of the cards and tags I made.
