Trust - the Language of the Heart

I love the quote below which comes from Streams in the Desert, a most wonderful devotional book by Mrs C.E. Cowman.

"The word TRUST is the heart word of faith.  The word faith expresses more an act of the will and belief an act of the mind.  But TRUST is the language of the heart."

We all go through difficult times when we don't know what on earth has hit us.  This is when the only thing we can do is reach out to God and trust Him to bring all to good as He has promised.  To quote from Streams in the Desert again: 

Trust sees and feels and leans upon a person, a great, true, living heart of love - that's God.  We may not understand what is happening to us, but we know He loves us and will see us through this time and indeed bring it to good.

Here is my art journal page where I simply wanted to play with my new PaperArtsy Jofy stamps which I won :) their current challenge is 'Flowers'.

I wanted to have a mainly white backround with just a little colour.  A scoochy sponge is perfect for this, giving a speckled backround.  I also stamped the circles which came with the set to add a bit more interest:

I love Jofy stamps and these flowers are so much fun to use.  I coloured them in with water colour pencils:

This bird, another Jofy stamp, is so adorable, I had to add him, his expression is so cute:
