1 Thessalonians 5:12-28

We appeal to you, brothers and sisters, to respect those who labor among you, and have charge of you in the Lord and admonish you; esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.  And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them.

See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all.  Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not despise the words of prophets, but test everything; hold fast to what is good; abstain from every form of evil.

May the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do this.

Beautiful artwork and lovely positive words. I love the monochromatic geometrical card. Very unique! I've never seen anything like that before and it makes me think of fantastic architecture. Have a lovely weekend and happy PPF.

Thank you Arnoldo for the wise words and lovely art of yours. Love the Lily, too. Happy PPF 💗
Hi Arnoldo, it's good to be busy I'm sure you'll agree and yes I am at the moment......no I am always! I started reading the words and they remind me of many thought that a good teacher would have and I know you will understand that but then I was distracted by that brilliant white piece of art. I have those dies and just haven't used them but you've inspired me to get them out.
Hope you have a lovely weekend, I should have a rest before starting all your jobs, you deserve it. Angela xXx

How beautiful! I love that verse. He is indeed the Father of Lights..such a lovely description. Your paper art is extraordinary--fills my eyes it does. Which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Fantastic art work Arnoldo. I particularly like the journal page with the illustrated scripture verse. Happy belated WOYWW. Sarah #3
It’s a really illuminating, uplifting passage from the word, Arnoldo, and as always your art is beautiful indeed. Love the altered lily card .. and the interactive is a particularly clever design and words too. Welll done. It’s funny I love white but struggle with white on white cards, your s has lovely texture.
Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too.
Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
