Priestly Blessing

I thought that with today being St. Patrick's day, and more than wearing green, shamrock shakes and beer, St. Patrick was a man who loved the Lord, and was so significant in the spritual life of Ireland, that today I’d show you a beautiful verse called the Priestly Blessing from the book of Numbers in the Bible.  The Lord told Aaron to bless the people with these words.  It’s one of my favourite passages of Scripture because of how beautiful it is to think the the Lord turns His face towards us and gives us peace.  The stamp is from ODBD Bookmarks Scripture, and I’ve added some patterned paper leaves, using an old pad of Kiwi Kiss from SU.  How I miss that vibrant green.  The dies are some a friend gave to me when she got a double set.  So kind!

I’ve added a couple of sparkly Nuvo Dots to some of the leaves and paper to give them a bit o’ dew, and curled a few of the leaves for dimension.

Christine, thank you for sharing this beautiful post. St. Patrick certainly loved the Lord, and praise God for the impact that was made in Ireland. What a precious Scripture you've used with the leaves and beautiful frame! How nice when we can share with each other (and we do occasionally get a double set)! Thank you, sweet friend, and sending warm hugs! xoxo
