Fall - John 10:10

Happy Sunday dear friends. Yes, I call you my friends. Many of you come for a visit once a week and several others come by for the first time. You leave me wonderful little messages and I get to share a message with you. Is that not what friends do? Visit each other - encourage each other - and share with each other. So, welcome friends, to another Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge.

The scripture verse this week was chosen by Peggysue. She had a wonderful choice again this time. It is taken from the book of John chapter 10 verses 10. Be sure to read her wonderful reflection on the main page - worth the read!
John 10:10 "I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly."
Peggysue challenged us to use real or faux stitching somewhere on your card/project. I just took a white jell pen and drew some squiggly lines. This challenge is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! - they have such a wonderful variety of products so be sure to stop over.

In the scripture this week Jesus is talking to the Pharisees trying to explain why He came. He tries in many different ways to explain throughout Chapter 10 , it is a great read read. When I read it I couldn't help but compare it to how a parent tries to explain something to a child - or when I teach a new concept to a student - some may get it right away - but others need to hear it and see it. Jesus must be just shaking His head at us and how we just don't get it! He came for us - each and every one of us - period.

For this card I used an image from Simon Says Stamp called Autumn Pals. I like the way the squirrel is just sitting on the tree stump knowing that the nuts will be there for him. Ah - what trust! 

Keep the hope and faith alive dear friends - until next time!
