Thank You God - 1 Timothy 4:4

Thank you God! How often do we remember to thank God for the little things, the farmers who grow our food, the weather (both rain and sun), the smiles of a stranger, the hug from a loved one. The day is filled with the wonderful gifts from God. Thanks also for another wonderful Sunday and a new scripture message from Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

Today our wonderful newest design sister is our challenge hostess and had this wonderful verse for all of us to work with from 1st Timothy 4:4.
"For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving."
Today I did remember to thank God for a morning of watching 2 of my grandsons play in a football game while I sat with my daughters and granddaughter. Then I again remembered to thank God for sitting at mass tonight with another granddaughter and daughter-in-law while another granddaughter sang a solo. There was a pot-luck dinner after the service that my sister (the children choir director) organized - thank you God! What blessings I have in my life. (to see my blessings check out the "All about me" page at the top of this blog). 

This card was just fun to make. It is a new stamp set that I just got called "Funny Farm". Such fun! I sponged the grass and the sky and used Copics to color the rest. I popped up the farm girl and the sheep. Just a fun card this time. The challenge for you is to make a thank you card!


Thanks for stopping by - I do thank God for all of you too!
