...trials bring endurance, steadfastness, and patience in areas where God knows I need to be strengthened. It is a process... the process of a child of God striving to become more like Christ each and every day. If I look at it as a process then I can say, "I get to endure, be steadfast, and patient." These things are working towards completing the work in me... perfect and lacking nothing. I do realize that will not be completed until I am no longer in this world, but isn't that what believers are to be moving towards and being a witness of? Yes, it may be three steps forward, two steps back, but I am not going to live my life as a "white-knuckle" Christian any longer.
I am trying to get back to doing some "just for fun" stamping, so here is my rendition of Michelle Zindorf's card (sunny day tutorial #330). I didn't have the same stamps she used or all of the inks either, but here it is.
Inks: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Summer Sun, Bravo Burgundy, Black, Gable Green
