Beautiful is the Hebrew yāpeh

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14a

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands; yes, confirm the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord! Psalm 4:6b
(These are the memory verses on the front of the I am Beautiful Art Card)
The I am Beautiful Art Card is found in the Who I am Collection at Flower Girl Greetings.com
The Who I Am Journal Collection was designed to encourage reflection on the Lord’s truth each month. Each Art Card includes watercolor art, brush lettering, memory verses, Hebrew letters, a devotional, space to write personal reflections year after year, and envelopes.
When we receive Jesus the Messiah, our Father God brings us into an eternal, intimate, covenant relationship with Himself by the Holy Spirit. He gives us names that describe our identity as those who have been born again into His family. They remain constant even though the clouds of our feelings, circumstances, weakness, grief, failure, and emotions may hide their reality. We have this hope as an anchor of our souls, a hope both sure and steadfast...(Hebrews 6:19)
The devotional on the back of the I am Beautiful Art Card:
I am Beautiful.
When we see October leaves transition from green to vibrant, fiery hues or gaze upon a dramatic, stormy sky, we say, “How beautiful!” When God looks at us as His children, man or woman, He declares, “How beautiful!” We are His painting, His masterpiece, His beautiful bride!
David declared, “How precious also are Your thoughts unto me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.” Psalm 139:17-18 David wrote these words in a song that praised God for His intimate knowledge of all his ways.
Many are God’s thoughts about us! He delights in the details of our uniqueness just as parents delight in watching their children blossom into their distinct personalities and giftings. We are free to focus away from our flaws and agree with God that we are beautiful! Shout it aloud each day!
Thank You, Lord, that Your Spirit fills me with Your beauty and comes through my beautiful uniqueness!

Thanks for this wonderful reminded of how he sees us as beautiful. I want to remember that every day. He has created us and we need to remember how much He loves us.

Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!
Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.
As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
