Wings: Ruth 2:12

Welcome back! Did you miss us - I missed all of you! It was nice to have a couple of weeks off during the busy holidays. We had a wonderful time with family and friends but now I am glad to get back to our routine - you are part of that routine. So here is the first weekly challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for this year.

Today Chris is our challenge hostess and the scripture she chose is from the book of 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."
You know when I read this verse my first thought was how wonderfully the Lord has always rewarded me - protected me - seen me though difficulties and rejoiced with me in all of my celebrations. I have always been under His wings and so grateful for it!

The challenge this week is to create a card or project that has wings. I chose to do a bird and use the fabulous designer paper that I got from a friend. The little bird in the corner that is part of the paper was just perfect! I also decided that I wanted it to be a thank you card - thank to my parents for teaching me from birth on about the love of the Lord. Thank you to my husband who has an incredible relationship with our God. Thank you to my family and friends, especially my Stampin' Sisters who always support and encourage and challenge me to a life filled with the love of Jesus!

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps and the stamp set you can win is awesome!

Miesje, enjoying reading your thoughts on the verse, and to follow up on that, we know that the Lord loves a thankful spirit. What a great way to say thank you to your parents! Looking forward to another year of stamping ministry with you!
