It feels like I have sent out a few too many sympathy cards over the past week. This one is for a friend who had a close family member die very unexpectantly. The sketch is from last weeks SCS Sketch Challenge 355. The colors I pulled from the DP.

I made this card using the sketch from Mojo Monday 211. The colors came from the ribbon I chose.
Recently I saw the movie Courageous and I found it to be very inspiring. Even though I don't have a husband or sons, I feel that I am called to pray for the men that I come in contact with at church, work, friends and even internet acquaintances to be courageous in God and rely on His strength. I made this card for one young man who has been struggling with discouragement and loneliness recently. To keep his identity private I will refer to him as Jay. For those of you that know the Lord Jesus Christ, I would ask that you keep Jay and the other men that God may lay on your heart in prayer.

Ink: Taken with Teal - SU, Walnut Stain Distress Ink - Tim Holtz
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Ribbon, Dies, Button

This card was made for SCS Sketch Challenge 353 and Color Challenge 343. I have been so busy lately that I feel like I rarely get a moment to take a breath. In the busyness I get frustrated when things do not go my way and think all my time and effort have been wasted. Psalm 46:10 reminds me that God is God and in control of everything and I am not. The trials of this life are not wasted time but lessons and building blocks to prepare us for even greater challenges that God has prepared for us. I believe that through these challenges, He is teaching me to rely on Him and His power and not on my own.
