Hello, Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!!  I am sorry for my lack of posting lately!! Life has been so busy, I often feel like I do not know whether I am coming or going.  Soon I will be done working since school will be out for the summer.  I have enjoyed working with the students I have had, but I am looking forward to a breather.  For a change of pace I will be making crafts with the kids for our church Bible School, all I have to do is come up with the crafts. LOL!  Two weeks after the beginning of Bible school, my daughters and I, will be going on our mission trip with the church youth group to Detroit, Michigan, for a week.  Should be eventful summer.  I just pray for the strength and endurance as I continue to deal with pain and issues with my leg.  God is so good!!  This week marks a year anniversary from the day I got hurt and God gave me a second chance at life!!  I am so thankful for His grace and mercy!

Today I am popping in to share a card I created with this week's sketch at the Shining the Light challenge!!

God cares for you!! I am living proof of His grace and mercy.  He is so good!!

God knows what will happen before it happens. He is always there!!

Oh how God is good and He cares so much for us! How time has flown - it's been a year! Praying that you're able to manage your pain - especially as you go away on camp with your girls.

Oh, Chris, when I think back a year ago, I am so grateful that He allowed you to survive the fall and all that happened afterward. Praise God for His tender mercies, and may you continue to heal each day. I continue to pray for the pain to ease and for you to get around easier each day. I LOVE your card and the beautiful pink with the black. Striking and so beautiful with the butterflies aflutter! Such a great reminder for us to pray without ceasing...all through the day as He brings things to mind to pray for. Special hugs, my friend, and I trust you will get the VBS work done and look forward to the trip with the girls!
