mom swaneyChristian Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Who’s the strongest Christian woman you have known?

For me, that woman was my mom.

She was a living testimony of God’s grace toward others.

Her favorite inspiring Bible verses were the 23rd Psalm and John 3:16.

At age 49, Mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I was age 16. She was given less than a year to live. Mom became desperately ill very quickly.

But my mom’s faith was unshakable. Mom took experimental medications – not to help her because it was too late – but with the hope of helping other cancer patients in the future.

Visitors who came to see Mom would often break down and cry because she was obviously suffering. But Mom would comfort her visitors, recite inspiring Bible verses and pray for them.

Mom’s miracle was not about being healed, but how she lived out her faith as she lay dying.

In Christ’s Love From Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry & the Scripture Pictures Team

P.S.  This is one of my favorite photos of Mom. She was newly married to my dad.

At Scripture Pictures  we have a photo with John 3:16 inscribed on it. Please see https://www.scripture.pictures/product/john-316/

Our site has original, one-of-a-kind Scripture Pictures for sale from around the world taken by award-winning photographer, Henry Lehn.

My Sister’s Faith: Scripture Pictures

Do you own something that is priceless?

I do.

It’s a photo album my sister, Judi,  made in 1966 – the year before she died at age 21.

She started the album by writing her favorite inspiring Bible verses. 

But it was Psalm 23:4 that best described her life:

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me.

 My sister was desperately ill for three years. The night Judi had emergency surgery she argued with her surgeon, as she insisted on wearing her cross. Reluctantly, the surgeon allowed her to tape the cross on her finger.

That was my last memory of Judi because she went home to be with the Lord.

Please send the Scripture Pictures Team your most memorable inspiring Bible verses. 

In Christ’s Love From Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry & the Scripture Pictures Team

P.S. I hope you enjoy this photo of my sister. This photo was taken before she became ill. I loaned her my hat and that was my bike!

Christian Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Have you ever had one of your favorite Christian songs perfectly match one of your favorite inspiring Bible verses? This happened to me just this week when I was listening to Casting Crowns sing, “Just Be Held” (written by Bernie Herms; Songs of Universal, Inc.) from their CD entitled Thrive. It goes like this:

Hold it all together


Everybody needs you strong


But life hits you out of nowhere


And barely leaves you holding on

And when you’re tired of fighting


Chained by your control


There’s freedom in surrender


Lay it down and let it go

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away


You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held


Your worlds not falling apart, it’s falling into place


I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held


Just be held, just be held

 What??? Did I really just hear: “Your worlds not falling apart, it’s falling into place”…“Stop holding on and just be held”?? Is this song telling me to let go and let God? Although I think I have so much power in certain situations, whom am I fooling? But when I surrender my challenges to the Lord and step out of His way so that He can implement His divine purpose, it is only then that great things happen.

This song reminds me of one of my very favorite inspiring Bible versesExodus 14:14: The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Instead of holding on so tightly to what little control we think we have, may we allow ourselves to be wrapped in the arms of the Lord and experience the peace that passes all understanding. Like a child who snuggles in a soft, safe, and sturdy blanket, may we “cuddle” in the arms of “Daddy God” and trust that our Father will break every chain to give us deliverance.

In Christ’s Love,
Patti, Henry and the Scripture Pictures Team

Thank you for  visiting our new website, Scripture Pictures, for Christian gifts, at www.scripture.pictures!

My husband, Henry, (the photographer) and I (Patti, the wife and photo assistant) invite you to become part of our regular “website family”, as we are frequently adding new photos and ideas to the site.

This website has become our “second home” because it is compiled of my husband’s life work and our travels together.

But most importantly, we want to share our faith with you by adding many of our favorite Scripture verses to Henry’s photography.

It is our hope that Scripture Pictures will minister to your heart and soul. They make wonderful Christian gifts for others and even yourself.

Henry and I want invite you to send  your prayer requests. We will keep all of your prayers in sacred confidence and treat your requests with the utmost respect. If you have “unspoken prayer requests” we will lift them up to the Lord, as well.

And we will let you know when we will be exhibiting Henry’s photos  from Scripture Pictures at various Christian conferences throughout the country. Please stop by to meet us in person and see Henry’s photos firsthand! We would love to see you in person.

I have written literally thousands of pages of professional information over the years as a Christian psychologist – but this is the first time I have ever written a blog. So, I ask you for a bit of grace if my blogs may not sound as polished as other sites. Please know that I never want to write anything that would be hurtful or spark division among the body of Christ. I simply speak from my heart, and I pray that comes across each and every time.

As believers, may we always meet at the foot of the cross, which unites us in faith.

“I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”

1 Corinthians 1:10

In Christ’s Love From Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry

10 Biblical Facts: Scripture Pictures

1 – The Writing of the Bible
The Bible was written over a 1600 year period by approximately 40 men. The time of the writing was from 1500 BC to AD 100.

2 – The Divisions of the Bible

While the Bible is 1 book, it contain 66 smaller books. The books of the Old Testament were written before the birth of Jesus Christ and the New Testament covers the life of Christ and beyond.

3 – Chapters and Verses

Each of the books, except 5, are divided into chapters and verses. The 5 which aren’t divided by chapters are Obadiah, Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude. These are short books which only have verse divisions.
Chapters were introduced to the Bible in 1238 by Cardinal Hugo de S. Caro. Verse divisions were not added until 1551 by Robertus Stephanus.

4 – The Longest and Shortest of the Bible

The longest chapter if the Bible is Psalm 119 with 176 verses. The shortest chapter is Psalm 117 with only 2 verses. Incidentally, the middle chapter of the Bible is Psalm 118. also Psalm 117. The longest book of the Bible is Psalms with 150 chapters, or psalms. It contains 43,743 words. The shortest book is 3 John with only 1 chapter and 299 words. The longest verse in the Bible is Esther 8:9 with 90 words. The shortest verse is John 11:35 with only 2 words, “Jesus wept.”

5 – The Bible Claims to be God’s Word
There are many books written about and by various religions. But the Bible is the only one which claims to be the actual words of God. Those who believe the Bible also believe that God inspired various people through the years to write down His actual words for mankind. The Bible says more than 3,000 times “thus saith the Lord.” It claims that the words which follow are quotes from God.

6 – The Bible is Historically Accurate

There were several secular historians who wrote about the events of the New Testament at the same time the Bible was being written. Josephus is the most well-known of them. He was a Jewish historian. Tacitus was a Roman historian who would have no benefit from not telling the truth. Both these men, as well as others, can be used to back up the historical accuracy of the Bible.
There are historical discoveries regularly coming to light that continue to support the accuracy of the Bible. Merrill Unger, who compiled a Bible dictionary wrote, “Old Testament archeology has rediscovered whole nations, resurrected important peoples, and in a most astonishing manner filled in historical gaps, adding immeasurably to the knowledge of Biblical backgrounds.”

7 – The Business of the Bible

There are more than 168,000 Bibles either sold or given away per day in the United States according to the Gideons, Wycliffe International and the International Bible Societies. Historically it has been said that the Bible is the most sold book of all time. It is regularly on various best seller lists. The Bible has been translated into more than 1,200 languages.

8 – The Bible Never Contradicts Itself
There are no contradictions in the Bible. Various people claim to find contradictions but they have to take verses out of context to do so. When looking at the Bible as a whole and understanding its teachings there are no contradictions. This is amazing when one considers that the Bible was written over such a long period of time.

9 – The Prophecies of the Bible

There are more than 3,200 verses with fulfilled prophecy either within the Bible itself or since the Bible was written. But there are still more than 3,100 verses with unfulfilled prophecies.

10 – The Writers of the Bible

While there were at least 40 different people who wrote parts of the Bible, some were more prolific than others. The Apostle Paul wrote at least 13 books of the Bible. He may have also been the author of the book of Hebrews. Moses wrote the first 5 books.
The Bible attributes more than 3,000 proverbs to King Solomon. These are not all written in the book of Proverbs. However, most of that book is said to be the proverbs of Solomon.
