Staying in Faith

Oh how hard it is to stay in faith waiting for the promises of God to come to pass. Have faith the size of a mustard seed? Need a new dose of faith?

Ask the Lord to increase your faith and help you!

But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. James 1:6

Stay in faith! Do not let the devil get an inch in your way! The devil is evil, wicked, and very very subtle with trickery. Watch out! He is out there to make you do not get your promises and fulfill the destiny the Lord has in store for you.

There is a book of you in Heaven with your purpose. We do know this: in declaring the Lord’s word, we will work our way through the obstacles and reach our final destination.

When I was beginning in the Word of God, I asked the Lord why His Word, the Scriptures, are considered a sword. He explained His Word is like a very sharp sword that cuts through anything. With a sharp sword you do not need to apply much force to cut ties, ropes, or anything holding us back.

This week, I am presenting you with two encouraging illustrations in a vintage retro style, with the Sword of the Scriptures to encourage your walk and refuel your faith.

The Aaronic Blessing

Also known as the Priestly Blessing or the Apostolic Blessing. God taught us the way to bless our generation and the ones to follow with this blessing found in Numbers 6:22-27 (NLT):

May the Lord bless you
    and protect you.
May the Lord smile on you
    and be gracious to you.
May the Lord show you his favor
    and give you his peace.

The “Aaronic Blessing” is the cross stitch pattern for this month. It is elaborate, it is a pattern with spice. To compensate for the challenge, it is done using a single color: your favorite blue! I had a lot of fun designing this pattern trying to replicate a country sampler.

This pattern is still on my needle, I am working on it with a beautiful color variations blue. This is also why it is taking longer than expected. Working with a color variations thread I have to stitch slightly differently, so that the color changes can be seen and appreciated. Color variations thread is perfect for a pattern like this!!!

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:11 (NLT)

Have a great and blessed weekend!

Blessing the Next Generation

Each one of us is born with a purpose and a destiny. We all have a destiny to fulfill. Our Father in Heaven wants us to achieve the unique destinies we all have. The devil wants to disqualify us. How can we make it happen for us? How can we help our children to achieve their destinies? Let’s make that happen for our generation.

The Father gave us a blessing in Numbers 6, called the Aaronic Blessing or the Priestly Blessing. This is the blessing we are to speak to our loved ones and the Father promises to bless them. It is written:

“Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.” Numbers 6:27

Every week, I like to bless my daughter with the Aaronic Blessing. One night after a long long day I couldn’t remember it, I know it by memory but I was just tired. I had so many things going on in my mind (hospital, bills, car, my sister-in-law pregnant, having guests over, etc). I though “why don’t I have the blessing above my daughter’s bed, something that I can read?”

Let me present you two illustrations with the Aaronic blessing to read and to bless our children. The illustrations are joyful, in blue for a handsome boy and pink for a beautiful girl.

Blessing in pink version, available here.

Blessing in blue version, available here.


Blessing our families is very important. The identity itself of each individual is being threatened daily with darts of discouragement and darkness from all sides.

Let’s shine the light of the Lord over this situation. The Lord is faithful to His Word. The Lord has provided… I have seen his faithfulness in the years.

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:11

Bless each part of your life, today is a good day to do it. This is our best weapon!

Be blessed, Nora

With an honorable mention, a new retro vintage A4 text illustration is now available with “The Blessings for Obedience” from Deuteronomy 28 verses 1 to 14.

For a time I have been wanting to do a full Deuteronomy 28 Blessings print that people can read and visualize at any moment, all in one sight. All the important text, in one place and one visualization. Ready to be studied, meditated, learned, memorized and help you claim the blessings that belong to believers.

Deuteronomy 28 Blessings
Deut. 28 Blessings


In the last week or so, the Holy Spirit has been reminding me of these promises, and reminding me to claim them daily. Daily news reports seem to be reporting bipolar news and do not know which side to pick, prosperity or chaos. The news for the people of God are in the Bible and they do not expire. This is the reason why I desired to make a Deuteronomy 28 Blessings list that will keep you focused on the things above.

But the truth is that we must claim all of these blessings for us. All the important text is there, King James version.


Social Media Update: I am now on Instagram!

I have decided to open an Instagram account to promote the site, the products, Bible verses and words of encouragement. What motivated me the most to open an Instagram account is that I have a new ‘type’ of products that I wish to promote and create a community for people that enjoy the same passion for this type of hand-work.

I have taken so many pictures of the process in between, but it will all be revealed next week.

As a reminder, you can sign up for a daily free Bible Scripture if you are a Facebook user. This is the page to follow: BibleScriptures. There is no publicity, no adds, no selling of things, just Bible Scriptures.

Have a great weekend, and be blessed.


The Way to Bless

Aaronic Blessing. Num 6:24-26 (NLT)

This chapter from Numbers was in the Old Testament reading for today, March 6 on my One Year Bible. So I decided to make this weekly post with something to share for you.

Please share and let’s bless our families, our children, our spouses, our government, our superiors, and our land.

…let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father who seeth in secret shall recompense thee… (Matthew 6:3-4 ASV)

Have a blessed week!
