Friends - Psalm 56:3

Oh my goodness - what a week! The birthday blog hop was amazing - thank you Lisa for thinking of it and organizing it. You are wonderful and such a gift to all of us! The comments just blew me away which is why I wanted to make this card. It is a simple card this time but it fit what I was thinking and feeling. Friends are so important in our lives and I am blessed to have so many.

I started back to work and it was good to see all my "work" friends again after the summer off. Some of us have been working together for many, many years and it is always nice to reconnect. I also am so happy to count all of you as friends. Taking the time to leave comments both here and on the Stampin Sisters in Christ site. 

The scripture verse this week was picked by Cindy and what a good verse it is. I am going to type out the couple of verses before it too - it works for me that way. Taken from my New American Bible, Saint Joseph Edition.
"Have pity on me, O God; for men trample upon me; all the day they press their attack against me. My adversaries trample upon me all the day; yes, many fight against me. O Most High, when I begin to fear, in you will I trust."
Do you have days like that - or even more. When it seems like everyone is against you. This could be at work or in your neighborhood or even in our own families. It is difficult to deal with those feelings. That is where the phrase that Cindy chose is so appropriate. "When I begin to fear, in you I will trust". That is TRUE friendship and that friend will never move or leave or judge you. I do not have to be afraid. How great is that?!

The challenge this week is to make a project that represents what could be your life verse. This will be different for everyone. I look forward to hearing what you will share.

I like this simple design and the embossing you've paired up with your patterned paper, very pretty! Friends are wonderful but people can and will disappoint us, won't they? When we trust in the Lord, that is one source of friendship that lasts forever.
