Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge: John 16:33

Good Morning! Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day here in Ontario, Canada 19 C! After this though we are in for a whole week of rain and cooler weather. Stampin' Sisters in Christ has another challenge up, the verse for it is:

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart I have overcome the world."
John 16:33

Create a card that to you represents peace and calmness.

I would like to ask for prayer for a little 3 week old baby. I found out last weekend that the little boy we babysit sister was in the hospital, this precious little girl is only 3 weeks old. They don't know what is going on and are waiting for test results. The mom has said that they will be in the hospital at least another week and a half. Saturday night she had a fever of 104 and her heart rate went to dangerous levels, they finally got all the levels to normal and the baby in stable condition. As a mom I can't image what this family is going through. I am not sure if this family knows the Lord but as a Christian myself I know that there is power in prayer. I think that the above scripture is quite fitting for this situation and my card is inspired by this situation.

 What I used:
Clear Dollar Stamps: Charlie Praying
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black, Lulu Lavender & Grape Jelly
Bic Mark It Markers
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels eight
Spellbinders Border (not sure of the name as I made the border at the crop)
EK Success Corner Rounder

For me peace only comes from God and praying is one way that I find that peace. Even in a bad situation I can take heart and now that God knows the outcome and has what is best for me. God doesn't promise that live is going to be easy but promises that He will carry us through the bad times. My favourite poem of all times is Foot Prints in the Sand, it is a great reminder that when we go through things like sickness, financial trouble, relationship issues, divorce, lost of a loved one that God will carry us through those times and bring us out on the other side. God can't carry us if we are unwilling, have you ever tried to pick up a kicking screaming child it's not easy and usually you just put the child down until he or she has calmed down. We can be like that screaming kicking child wanting our own way or wanting to do things on our own and blaming God for our circumstances but much like a parent He is patience and waits until we have calmed down and realize that we truly do need Him to carry us through.

Please head over to the challenge and join in it. The deadline is October 27th at 11:59p.m

Have A Great Day!

God Bless!!
