Stampin Sisters In Christ #75

Good Morning! Well it is time for another SSIC Challenge. This week Miesje is the host, she has chosen
1 John 3:18 - Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. Her challenge for us this week is to make a card/project that uses no words on the front yet signifies love.
Our Sponsor is Clear Dollar Stamps and the prize is 15 dollars in stamps. 

Insight: 
It is easy to say I love you, but harder to show! Showing love takes patience, sacrifice, and truly giving of your self.  Years ago when I was a baby christian, I was a CNA, my very first patient was a crippled  elderly women, and we had to clean her, right away I was prideful and rebellious and stated "I was not cleaning anyone's butt" she looked up at me with eye's that pleaded for compassion and she said " What ever you do for the lest of these, you do it as unto Christ". Those words cut me to the depth of my soul, I was changed in that moment into one of the best CNA's for years, went on to Hospice's, specialized in Alzheimer's. That one cripple women that the world would look at as a burden, broke me with the love of Christ and His word. What made me so good in this field, was "Love in Action" I cared for the needs of  each person as though they were Christ Himself.

Receipe:
The owl is a Stamping Up punch. Used nestibilities heart's, EK punch, swiss dots.

What a great card! I love owls and the color red. Rebekka, your story really touched me as well. I've been an LPN for over 22 yrs. I LOVE my patients...truly. I always have something to learn from them..whether elderly or not. In addition, this time right now with my dad has been an eye opening experience into the "personal" end of it. I feel God using me in his life and vice versa. I'm so thankful that there are great ppl. out there like this faith-filled woman. God bless her AND you. Thankyou for sharing.
