Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope you are having a great beginning to your day!!

Today I am popping in to share a card using a sketch for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  I used one of my fave images from the recent release called Anchor the Soul!!  I also used The Mighty Sea. The embossed background is the Paper Studio Quatrefoil.


Anchors are a symbol of strength!! I am so glad that my Saviour reigns and that I have hope to go through each day and the hope that some day I will be with Him!  In times of trials I have one set of footprints as it is Him who carries me.  

When I think of this verse: I think of this song by Ray Boltz, The Anchor Holds.  You can listen to the song here on YOUtube

I have journeyed
Through the long, dark night
Out on the open sea
By faith alone
Sight unknown
And yet His eyes were watching me
The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm
I've had visions
I've had dreams
I've even held them in my hand
But I never knew
They would slip right through
Like they were only grains of sand
The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm
I have been young
But I am older now
And there has been beauty
These eyes have seen
But it was in the night
Through the storms of my life
Oh, that's where God proved
His love to me
The anchor holds
Though the ship's been battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm


 Here is the photo of the sketch:
