I lean on these words! And I know we all need to be reminded, that Gods words and promises are everlasting! We often feel like we do not measure up, we question if we have his favor. This verse says to me that he has given us eternal life if we believe! What a reassuring gift!
This card was a beautiful designer paper that was a gift from a stamp friend. We worked on them in a group of about four ladies. We stamped the bird and flowers in the middle on cream card stock, cut it out and glued it to the center. Then we added the velum bird and flowers in the top right corner and the bird nest in the bottom left corner. The pink flower was added with pop dots to give it a small lift. The card base is a rose red card stock, and it seemed to pick up the colors in the card and provide a good accent color.
We all have these layers much like my card. We often try to hide under our layers, for fear of showing our true selves to others. I have learned that when I do that, as a means of protecting myself, it seems that I have missed out on so much love and understanding, that I could give and receive. Today, be that PINK flower, put on your pop dots to stand out, because when you reach out to someone and show them that your human and fragile sometimes too, you will be blessed by their story! People flutter by us all day, in a rush hurting, sad and lonely. Smile and say hello do you love birds? HA! Now that will get their attention! They will not be expecting that. I bet you both smile, and then the door is open for you to say you look like me today needing a friend *** Be Blessed!
