This is my card for the current Hymn and Scripture Challenge located HERE. The Hymn is Lord Speak to Me that I May Speak and although I sometimes have a rough time getting over the old English, there is some gold in here.
The part that I posted has the words, "Teach me that I may teach the precious things..." The whole hymn gives the idea that we must first get the knowledge, the love, the know-how or whatever from God, and then we can be helpful to others.
I agree with that thought and that's the reason I picked the verse from I Samuel 3:10 which ends with "Speak, for your servant is listening.
I don't think we hear too much if we are not listening, and I want my ears to be open.
Love the uniqueness of your card, Carole and agree with having listening ears.... SusanReplyDelete
Neat card! To me it looks like the city is "listening" with the red glowing moon behind it. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Gabby, I guess it can mean whatever you want it to mean. The city represents the world or the people who near to hear and maybe are NOT listening. The sun setting means it's getting late. We never know how much time we have, and I want to be listening. Lots of my cards have a meaning and I rarely get to share it. Thanks.Delete
What a wonderful message behind this artful card, my friend! I love your take on this hymn and now I am singing it in my heart in the middle of the night.....ReplyDelete
