Peace: Mark 10:27

Hello Sunday - I love this day of the week, the chores are done and it is a day to relax. Many of you will be attending services this morning at your places of worship, we attended and participated last night. As always it is good to see you, I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!

This week the every Lovely Linda is the hostess and the verse she chose is Mark 10:27. Be sure to stop by our home page to read wonderful testimony. 

"Jesus looked at them and said, "For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God."
All things are possible for God - yes indeed. I think of this verse a lot, even recite it on a regular basis, especially when a tough choice or obstacle is in my path. "Through Him all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26) is another one that is always on my mind. So many verses give us the same encouragement or sometimes it is the kick in the pants that I need to move forward. Right now it is the encouragement that I seek - and find in Him. 

The challenge this week is anything goes!

Sometimes I hit a dry spell and when I do I look through different challenges and try to use my newest stamp(s). So I came upon the "black magic" technique challenge over on JUGS. Looked like fun so I decided to try it with the newest stamps from Layers of Color. So that is what I did. 

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp with an adorable stamp set!

Be sure to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week:
