A Time for Everything

Seasons...they effect our lives in so many ways, starting with the natural seasons...every three months we experiences the changes that come as the old season comes to an end and the new comes....most of us aren't sorry to leave the coldness of winter where we tend to isolate and stay in our safe, warm environment. We start to inch our way outside as we see the touches of spring working it's way through your gardens with blossoms and greenery starting to peak through the baron branches....and so it can be with our lives. As it is with nature, the coldest darkest time of a season can be right before the next one breaks through...and that is usually when we get the most discouraged and are more likely to give up...these words from Soloman bring such truth and comfort!! At the end of Ecclesiastes, Soloman sums it up by telling us that at the end of the day...our duty is to fear God and obey His commandments....that over all, is OUR purpose!!

So...it is just a verse on a card - I think not! Cards with scripture are among my favourites to make...it is an opportunity to combine my passion for paper with my passion for Him! This is such a vital part of who I am and I am so grateful to have found both...I am also grateful for the friends I have met along the way...and would like to thank Kathy (aka Wattle) for sending me some stamped scriptures, as I don't have any...thank you Kathy and for the Nesties you have done with them...I am loving having the luxury of them. This one is perfect for a card for a friend who lost her mother yesterday...I am hoping it brings her comfort!!

This card is for the Our Creative Corner Challenge, you can find the recipe on my SCS Gallery. Thank you for taking the time to look, please leave a comment so I know you have been - it means so much to me!! It is Wednesday night here and raining...lovely...every season has it's benefits! God bless you!
