Hello, Friends!! I hope everyone had a blessed weekend and that for those of you living in the USA, you had a blessed Holiday weekend!!

It has been a while since posting since I have been away on a mission trip with my girls.  We had a great time fellowshipping with fellow believers, sharing our faith with others and working for those in need.  It was a very eye-opening experience for my dear daughters to see how others live and what it is like in poorer inner-city areas.  While it was good to go away and have this experience, we are all glad to be home again. The many people we met, even their poverty, were happy.  It reminds me of the verse:

Philippians 4:12New International Version 

12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

Today, I am popping in to share a card I made for the Shining the Light challenge which is a color challenge this week!! I had so much fun playing with new dies available at Our Daily Bread Designs!!

Home Sweet Home, Antique Labels and Borders die, Welcoming Window die, Flower Box Fillers die, Window Shutter and Awning die, Fancy Foliage die, Fence die, Grass Border die, Shabby Rose Paper collection, designed by Chris Olsen

Ah Chris was blessed reading this post, to "be content with such things as ye have" is so important in this world where we are encouraged to want! want, get, it all so very, very much.

Am grateful to live as I do, in a peaceful land, able to worship my God freely, a roof over my head, food on the table and even a room of my own to craft in... Gods mercies are VERY great...
Thanks for your lovely card to share too, and also for popping over and saying, hi.
