Hello Friends!! I hope you are all doing well!! It is hard to believe how the time flies and how brisk it has become.  While I love Fall, I fear that winter is just around the corner...reports are saying that they feel it is going to be a very cold and snowy winter.  I am so not ready for that!!!!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD which is Anything Goes with ODBD stamps. 

Here is a card I made using the God's Timing stamp set as well as the coordinating Dies - Ornament Circle dies and Matting Circle dies.  The sentiment uses the Christmas Pennant Swag stamps and the coordinating Pennant Swag dies.  The paper is from the ODBD Christmas Collection 2013

ODBD Paper Used: Christmas Collection 2013

I made this card for my Dad who is celebrating his Birthday this coming weekend and the best thing is I get to give it to him in person!! I am so excited that in two days they are coming for a week!!  I am so blessed!!

Here is today's first to go with my card:
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. — Proverbs 27:1

How many of us are anxious about the future or worry about the future.  I sure do!! I am guilty!! Don't you have your hands full with today? Don't you find yourself distracted from the urgent and important things of today when you worry about the problems of tomorrow? Don't you occasionally find yourself missing an opportunity today while fantasizing about all the possibilities down the road? Isn't it a waste of time to be anxious about those things over which you have no influence? So why worry so much about tomorrow, and next week, and...? Let's walk with God today and trust in his faithfulness for us tomorrow.  

I know it is easier said then done...some of the questions I often ask are: Will I be back to walking normal eventually after I heal, will I always have such pain?  Will I ever feel the outside of my leg when I feel I have an itch?...Will I be able to pay my Mortgage Payment?  The list goes on....I must trust in God with all my heart!!!

For more inspiration for this challenge, I hope you have enjoyed my take on the inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy my creation!! For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Cheryl Scrivens, DJ Rants, Diana Nyugen, Robin Clendenning, Linda Carson, and Elizabeth Whisson.

Robin Clendenning said...

Awesome Chris!! Love your devotional for today! This is so true but also it makes me think again about how good I have it even when I think I don't because there are some people-you for one, who are in constant pain!!
I love your beautiful heart, your beautiful card and beautiful thoughts!

Oh, Chris, this is beautiful! I LOVE the papers you chose and the beautiful contrast of black for the hands of the clock and beautiful border. And your "celebrate" banner is so sweet across the top! Oh, yes, time does quickly especially as we get older. And we do get anxious about the future with so many cares and worries, but I do love this precious Scripture verse that reminds us implicitly that we don't know what a day brings and that we must continue to trust in our precious Father, Who loves us so dearly and is always caring for matter whether we are feeling well or can make the next mortgage payment. It's hard, but we strive to take every thought captive and remember His Word and promise to never leave or forsake us and that He will care for all our needs. What comfort! Continuing to pray for your healing and know that God will restore His time. And what a wonderful card for your dad, and I'm so glad you get to give it to him in person...with lots of hugs! Thanks for sharing this beautiful card and devotional post, sweet friend! Hugs!
