Good morning, All. It's another Sunday and freezing here in Ohio. Hope no matter what the weather, you are toasty warm!
There have been some extremely sad stories in our local news this week. My heart hurts for these people whose lives were changed in an instant. Of course, all of us face hard circumstances and tragedy in our lives here on earth. Sometimes those experiences pile up around us, causing us to feel completely torn apart. When my family went through a lengthy time of trial, I was able to attend Downpour, a conference sponsored by Walk in the Word.
The conference Scripture was and this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters In Christ is Hosea 6:1: "Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds."
It's only as we return to the Lord again and again that we experience healing. The conference Scripture included verse 3 where God promises He will come as certainly as the spring rains. Oh, the comfort I recevied to be reminded that our wounds would be bound and our crushed hearts would be healed. I pray that each of us will continue to return to the Lord and seek His face everyday.
Now for our challenge: Make the broken look beautiful! Create a mosaic or tear apart something & stitch it back together. In some way, have your image look broken.
As you can see from my card, I did not follow the challenge exactly. I used two sided dp, cut it apart and fit it snuggly back together (don't have a sewing machine for papercrafting). Please join us by posting your creations to SSCC. May the Lord bless your week....Hugs, Laurie
