Happy Sunday Everyone!!  I hope you are enjoying the weekend and one of the last week's of summer which is upon us in the USA.

Today is the day of another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge brought to us by Cindy.  Cindy has chosen: Psalm 56:3, When I am afraid, I will trust in THEE.

The bible gives us such comfort if we will just look to HIm and trust Him instead of relying on our strength.

 Cindy's challenge to go with this verse is:
to make something that represents what could be your life verse, a place where God has revealed to you that you can trust in him, something representing a turning point in your life, or just focusing on Psalm 56:3. This is more of an open challenge, something that only you understand. I want you to be encouraged and remember those special "Jesus and me" moments when the Lord truly revealed Himself to you and praise Him for it.

Have you ever driven up your driveway and thought is that really my house.  I still do after 12 years.  I think what did I do to deserve this house.  Or, did you ever think "Why am I blessed with such a loving and handsome husband who cares so much about me?" I do!!  or "How did I deserve these beautiful and healthy children?"  I often wonder how do I deserve such blessings. There are so many who have so much less or deserve so much more.  While thinking over these questions, I am reminded of my favorite verse which to me sums up the entire Bible or Gospel story: For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith~and this is not from yourselves, It is the GIFT OF GOD. Ephesions 2:8.


My verse comes from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 2 and the poinsettia image is from the Blessed Christmas.

The paper is a from Winter Wonderland K & and Co.  The ribbon is olive silk from May Arts.  I also added some ZVA Creative Pearls.
My card uses the Midnight Madness sketch for this week.

HI Chris! I love the peeking of the poinsettia in the design framing the verse. Gorgeous! I often think of that too, the beauty of His grace and how much I am blessed by Him. This summer taught me a lot about that too.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

This is beautiful! That is one of my favorite verses as well and I too am thankful for my many blessings. I do think about those less fortunate in their marriages, their shelter . . . it is a good reminder.
