ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Hello Friends!!!  I hope you are all well!!!  Today I am popping in to share today's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD as well as a sneak peek for tomorrow's release!!

Today's Shining the Light challenge is an inspiration.  The photo is below.

For my creation I used two sets of stamps from Our Daily Bread Design's newest release taking place tomorrow: Autumn Tree and God's Timing!!  The clock is die cut with ODBD's Circle Ornament Die and ODBD's Matting Circles.

I just love this verse!  It is so true!!  We not only have the seasons of winter, fall, summer, and spring but we also have the seasons of joys, sorrows, ups and downs.  God has a purpose for them all.  In all seasons I am so blessed to have God...especially in the seasons when there are trials.  He is always there!! Even when I am hurting or feeling alone!  

Today is my birthday!!! and I get to celebrate the many seasons of my life...I have so much to be thankful for!!  I am so thankful to have my family and friends to celebrate with.  Just five months ago, I could have been gone from this earth after suffering from 2 massive pulmonary embolisms in both lungs, but God is not finished with me yet and I am so blessed to have this opportunity to share with you!!

My verse for today!!:
Rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains in righteousness. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. — Joel 2:23

Holy God and tender Father, you are my great delight. When all others fail, you are still God. You are my rock and fortress, you are my tender shepherd, and you are my solid mountain that cannot be shaken or moved. Your blessings and grace shower down upon me and fill me with joy. No matter when I am in pain or when the joys or peaks of excitement touch my life, you are with me! I can't wait for the day I get to see you face to face and delight in your presence forever. Amen!!

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.

Oh, Chris, your card is absolutely gorgeous! Your coloring is exquisite, and I love the layout with your beautiful "fave" color!! Amazing card, but the verse is the best! And, praise God He is always with us...through it all! It's a joy to pray for you as you and your family go through this time of trial since your accident. And you are a testimony of how God gives us strength in the hardest of times. Thank you for the wonderful verse and for truly shining the Light of Christ in all that you do! Hugs, precious friend!
