Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you are all having a blessed day!!!  We have now found out the closing is the 15th of March on our home and we will have to movers move our stuff out by the 14th!! UGH!!! We have so much to do that I am overwhelmed.  I have been praying for God's peace in all of this.  I sometimes feel like I am running in circles and not accomplishing what I should.  I know He has a plan for us and that He is with us in all we do.  

Now that we are getting closer, I am realizing how difficult change is for me and how anxious I am getting.  I keep on reciting verses over and over in my head:  "Don't be anxious about anything, but in all things bring your prayers and petitions to Him."  "They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings like eagles."  and one of my favorites "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths."  I truly have coveted the messages and emails of support of prayer and well wishes for us!!  

Today I would like to share a sneak peek of a set being released tomorrow at Our Daily Bread Designs.  The set I used is called Light of Life.  The verse is framed with the Sizzix  (Birds and Wreathe) embossing folder.  The flowers are scrunched and home made.  To create the foliage, I used the fanciful flourish die from Cheery Lynn, and the Martha Stewart Twig punch. On the embossed oval, I used silver baubles.

Challenges I am entering my card in:
Paper Crafting Journey -  Anything made with paper goes
Paper Play -  Something old, something new (new stamp, old embellishments)

Congratulations, Chris! Have you found a new home yet? I know this may sound funny...but when I get anxious and prayers and Scripture just doesn't calm me down fast enough...I do La Maze (spelling?) breathing. NOT the fast part...the slow part. Try it out. Deep--Deep breaths...emptying all of the works for me. I hope it helps you, Sweetie! And, look at your list of things to do...and chop off the things that aren't really you have any off time at any of your DT's coming? Can't the kids help? Have a pizza party and let people from church that you know wrap the snooping there! Just ideas.

The Scriptures you shared are my Go-to favorites with the addition of "Be Still and Know I am God." Try to get calm and still for the purpose of being able to hear what the Lord is telling you and guiding you to do. I hope it helps, Sweetie. I'm here if there is anything I can do for you!

I LOVE the card you shared! I just now opened a box I just received of the most beautiful flowers. Your flowers are amazing, and all of those types of greenery. I LOVE IT! The Scripture is phenomenal! I love the length of it...the layout...and the fonts! This is something I would take as is, and put in a shadow box frame and hang in my home. It is truly wonderful, Chris!

He IS Able!

Gorgeous card. I will be praying for you as we are in a similar situation and have to move house and re-home our horses as the farm we live on (rented) is being sold. We are trying not to panic and trust in the Lord too, but it isn't always easy.
