A Gift to be Simple
This is the 20th set of words for The Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics Challenge - DESTINY and/or GIFT. For my postcard this time I decided to go for this hymn as it was the first song that popped into my head. I've recently been re-watching Alias Smith and Jones on TV and this is one of the songs Pete Duel sings in that.
I've just used 3 lines on my postcard but there are a couple more verses below - I was thinking of doing the valley of love and delight or friends but decided to go for the easy option and just do a set of gifts. The stamps are the Christmas Parcel set by Oak House Studio coloured with markers and the background is a mix of Distress Stains.
'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
'Tis the gift to have friends and a true friend to be,
'Tis the gift to think of others not to only think of "me",
And when we hear what others really think and really feel,
Then we'll all live together with a love that is real.
I've managed to catch up with week 17 too where the choice of words was PEACEFUL and/or GRACE - I chose this quote by Maximillian Degenerez and used various inks and stains to create a peaceful riverside setting ......well that's what it's supposed to be!!
Thanks for popping by and leaving comments - they are always appreciated!
