Well Wishes: Luke 18:17

I did not get a lot of other cards made this week. Some weeks are just busier than others. But I did get my card done for my favorite day of the week; Sunday's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

This week it was my turn to choose the verse for this week's challenge. The verse I chose is from the book of Luke chapter 18 verse 17.

"Amen I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it."
About an hour before Mass tonight my phone rang. It was one of the ladies from church who was scheduled to do tonight's readings. She had broken a hip and after a somewhat lengthy recovery (at age 89) she was back in the rotation. Well, Martha asked me to cover for her saying that she felt a little uncertain, so I said I would. Normally when it is my turn to do the readings I practice several times during the week so I was a bit nervous myself. When we arrived at church I was surprised to see  Martha. She felt better and was still going to do the reading but wanted me to sit with her and take over if she could not finish. She just needed a little support - she did great too. Trust - she placed her trust in me and together we placed our trust in God.

Please see my full devotion at the home page of Stampin Sisters in Christ.

This week the challenge is to create a card or project for a child.

I made this card for my granddaughter who had to have her tonsils out this week. It is scary for an 8 year old to go through a surgery and I wanted to send her a little comfort. I stamped the image, colored it and cut it out. Then I used several pages from the BG Olivia DP. I found the charm in my stash and placed a few dew drops on it. The seam binding ribbon was a gift!

Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps with a $15 gift certificate.

What a cute card. I love the ribbon and charm. I am sure it will bring your granddaughter comfort. It was funny to me about you being nervous to read. That would be me. I love reading out loud in small groups, but get tongue tied with big groups, but give my my keyboard and let me sing and I'm not the least bit nervous.
