SSIC #54

 Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron so a friend sharpens a friend.
I love this verse! I have a friend at work that had studied to be a priest in the Roman Catholic church, he quit after several years because he discovered women :) and got married. He and I spar on "the doctrines of men" and the Bible, now with many you can not do this without arguing but he and I have a sweet spirit and it challenges us both to study more to be ready for answers the next time we see one another; we are friends who have been through the fire's of life who have come out with strong faith in Jesus Christ, who challenge one another to stand, to grow deeper in the knowledge of God and to grow up strong in the things of Christ. We are iron (faith that has been tested) that sharpens iron!

 "Stampin Sisters In Christ" challenge. This morning Linda is our host and she has challenged us to use "metal"

Our sponsor today is none other then the lovely Louby Lou at Digital Delights.

Rebekka I love what you did with the foil and it is the perfect 'foil' or background for your image. I am glad you have someone to spar with on scripture, that does help sharpen the iron, doesn't it?
