CHRISTMAS and a card from Grace...

Hello Friends- Welcome!  Don't forget I have a GIVEAWAY HERE. I am praying today finds you well! Quite honestly, my current circumstances are not well, BUT the good news is "It is well with my soul!" My family and I are on a journey right now through a difficult season of change yet we know who is in control and fully trust that the LORD has our circumstances all planned out and wants us to lean on Him during this temporary season! It will be exciting to see how His plan unfolds!

Proverbs 3:5-6 (one of my life verses) Trust in the LORD with all your heart, 
      And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, 

      And He shall direct your paths. 

Luke 10:41-42 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

The first card I am sharing is one my talented 9 year old daughter created. She LOVES to stamp with me, as does my 6 year old daughter (yet her patience and attention span doesn't last as long)

Love both the cards! Isn't it great when the kids play and craft along with you as well. Mine are still a little too young but I have trained them to just say "WOW" when I show them a new creation. I do love the colors that Grace has used. Thanks for playing along with us at GIngerloft Challenges.
