Sunbeam Sunday and a Challenge

The Simple Sunday challenge at Getting Cricky last Sunday was I'll Sing You A Song. I have been thinking about what I could do, Then I came across this stamp with the lyrics from As Sisters in Zion. This is one of my favourite hymns and it sums up how I feel about being a member of Relief Society (the organisation in our church for the women)
The words of the hymn are:

As sisters, in Zion, we'll all work together;
The blessings of God on our labours we'll seek.
We'll build up his kingdom with earnest endeavor;
We'll comfort the weary and strengthen the weak.

The errand of angels is given to women;
And this is a gift that, as sisters, we claim:
To do whatsoever is gentle and human, 
To cheer and to bless in humanity's name.

How vast is our purpose, how broad is our mission,
If we but fulfill it in spirit and deed.
Oh, naught but the Spirit's divinest tuition 
Can give us the wisdom to truly succeed.

I love the message of this hymn, and it gives me something to work towards, to be help those around me.

I used Winter Wonderland to cut out the circle and the scalloped circle. The stamp is Sunbeam Stamps, and the paper is My Mind's Eye, and a few odd buttons, and ribbon. The circle dangles, it is not stuck down.

Thanks for visiting.
