Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope you are all well and enjoying the last of Fall.  It is hard to believe it is already November and that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.  The leaves have really changed their colors this week and they are falling.  It is gorgeous!!!

Today I am popping in with this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!! This week's challenge is: 
Be Inspired by a song or Music.

My card is inspired by Joy to the World!! What joy to know that God sent His one and only son at Christmas!!  While our World places more emphasis and importance on Christmas, without Easter, there would be no celebration at Christmas.  God sent His Son as a humble baby in the humble manger so that He would in the future die for us.  If Christ had not done that for us, what difference would Christmas really make?  Thanks be to God for His unspeakable GIFT.  All we need to do as His people is to accept His gift.  In these trying times when the world seems to be fighting, immoral and falling apart at the seams, WE as a Nation need to RECEIVE HER KING and recognize without Him we are doomed.  Instead our government seems to be trying to push God out of our Pledge of Allegiance, our schools, off our dollar bill, and out of our lives.  This is what our country was Founded on..I am unsure of what our future is as a nation but I thank God that it is He who holds my future!!!

Card Recipe: 
Other dies: Spellbinders Ovals (Classic),  Cheery Lynn French Doily Die
Accessories: Poinsettia embossing folder (SU)
