Hello All!!  I hope you have been enjoying the weekend!!  After having a very rough week, it was great to be able to spend some time with my hubby and girls.  We have spent some quality time together.

Today I am popping in to share this week's Stampin Sister's in Christ Challenge.  This week's hostess is Traci.

This week's verse chosen my Traci is:
1 Thessalonians 5:18 "Give thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." ESV

It is very easy to say thanks for things when life is going well or when things turn out just the way want them to but it isn't easy when life gets rough.  When life seems to be at it's worst, we always have something to be thankful for.  During this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday remember to say thanks!!

This weeks challenge:

Create a card or project that depicts can be an image of something you are grateful for, a scripture that evokes your gratitude, or it can be a card made especially for a person you would like to thank this time of year!!

For my card I chose to use the verse: 

The Gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 6:23

 No, this is not a Thanksgiving or a thank you card but it shows the one thing that I am deeply grateful for!!!  Without this gift from God, my life would not be worth living.  Thanks Lord, for your Grace and for your salvation.  As we approach the holiday season, I pray that it is remembered that  this is the true gift..there are no gifts in comparison!!!

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Gift of GodSacred Season
Accessories: lace, gold metal bells (hoarded stash from last year), liquid applique, lace, ivory wrinkled ribbon from May Arts, Provocraft Soft Swirls, Gold embossing powder
Dies: Holly Accents from SpellbindersODBD Window Die

Be sure to check out  Traci's devotional on the SSIC Blog, as I know you'll be blessed!
