When I was making this card for my mother I was thinking about a blessing, and the old hymn, "Count your blessings name them one by one, count your many blessings see what God has done." Many times our complaining drowns out all the life lessons that God is trying to show us. . I work with a person I did not like, and it was impressed on me that this person was a blessing in my life, HOW?? The word of God says "iron sharpens iron" it gave me an opportunity to pour out the love of Christ as Christ pours it out on me daily. It gave me a chance to work out my christian principles by loving unconditionally, love is a choice not a feeling, so this person who I did not like, was a blessing in my life. I have learned in my many years in Christ, that all things good or bad works out for the good of those who are in Christ Jesus, if we would just stop complaining and realize that our life is a blessing and we are called to be a blessing to others.
I made this card for the Gina K sketch challenge, try it out because you can win free stamps over there :), no I haven't won anything yet but this is my second card. This stamp is from Stamping Up "from the garden" It is hugh. This card is 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, gold embossed, colored with pencil and gamsol, and markers. I used papertrey raspberry fizz and basic grey bitter sweet.
Have a Blessed Day, and Count your Blessings
