Baptism: Matthew 16:23

Palm Sunday - such a special day in the liturgical calendar. And another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

This week it is Peggysue who chose the verse for the challenge. The verse she chose is  Matthew 16:23 . Perfect for this season of Palm Sunday.

Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan!"
Temptation - we all face it daily in one form or another. Sometimes is is easy to resist, other times not so much. Satan is always so busy trying to get us to make bad choices, we have to work harder to resist. It is a good thing that we can call for help - Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane when He asked His father to let the cup pass from him. When we are in constant communication with Our Father we have help keeping Satan behind us more often.

Use Versamark for a tone on tone background somewhere on your card. 

Next Saturday night at the Easter Vigil service our 6 newest (through adoption this past year) grandchildren will be welcomed into the church through baptism, 1st Holy Communion, and Confirmation. We are so happy for them and for our family. I made each one of them a different card and posted them all on my blog in previous posts. This is the last card and it is for the youngest, 5 year old Victoria. 

Our sponsor this week is Designed2Delight with a $10 gift certificate.
