A blessed Sunday to you! This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Chris Olsen is our challenge hostess for this week's scripture-inspired challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ. Chris chose as her scripture Ruth 2:12, "May the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge." Her challenge is to make a card/project featuring wings.
It's a bit hard to read, but the greeting on my card (which comes from the Faith & Hope stamp set by Taylored Expressions) says, "Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons do not last. The Spring rain will come again. -Sarah Ban Breathnach."
Folks, I have to confess... I'm completely drained at the moment. As I write, I'm still in Arizona at my MIL's, dealing with the move of her MIL into assisted living. My mind is drawing blanks. I'm exhausted. I don't like my card (except for the greeting) and came "this close" to scrapping it and giving the challenge a miss. But I want to make sure YOU know about this week's challenge at SSIC. And I do believe your visit there will be a blessing to you. I also think the greeting on my card is self-explanatory. Let's just say I'm living this very thing at the moment. It IS wondrous the way God answers prayer. Truly. I've felt His presence every step of the way on the journey we're on now and as it relates to my own life.
My friends, EXPECT your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways, and don't be surprised when they are! God is with you in everything!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
