Life is not about running from the storms. It is about trusting in God and learning to dance in the rain.
I have had plenty of storms in my life. Most of my life I kept trying to run from all the storms in life. So many times I wondered why God did not keep the storms from me or give me a bigger umbrella. In the last few years I finally learned that I should be trusting in God to lead me through the storms. I know that He is using the hard times in life to mold me, shape me, and form character. Now that I understand this I'm learning to view the storms differently. I know God has the power to calm the weather but sometimes He just wants me to hold His hand lead me through it.
This is a card I'm entering for the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge # 78. The scripture reference is:
Psalm 9:10 "Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you."
I had a cyst in my hand so I had to keep it simple this week. This is a cut file I got several months ago. Couldn't resist this cute little ducky.
For the challenge I had to include three buttons or something that "secures".
If you look closely I used paper lacquer on the splashing water.
Hope you enjoy.
