Even when days are rough and times are tough, God says that we should never give up. I’ve had some rather sorrowful days lately. And it is in the tough emotional times when I’m feeling my worst, that I turn to God. Since Friday afternoon when my kitty had a stroke, it has been hard for me. She is now with her Savior and my soul is at peace knowing she is in Heaven being cared for and loved by the Lord. My tough times only serve to strengthen my faith and never give up living my life. My faith helps me cope.
I sincerely hope you all turn to Him in your troubling times and feel his healing.
Today’s blog hop card was made while I’m still grieving. But the colors I chose for this card show how making this card tonight was very good therapy for my grieving. According to the Sensational Color website, the color purple uplifts, calms and offers a sense of spirituality. I think this card does just that.
I used the stamp set Never Give Up (Our Daily Bread designs) for my card. The cross in the stamp set has a coordinating die called Grunge Cross Die. The pair, when layered together with foam tape, give a spectacular presentation. You can pick up these two items and get FREE SHIPPING on your orders through midnight EST Dec. 22!
