Nothing is too hard for you...

Here is another smARTworks card. I decided not to color this one and just leave it monochromatic. This is a gate fold card as I hope you can see that in the second photo. That butterfly on the right is on the right panel.


Wouldn't this make a great card to encourage someone? What can I complain about after reading this verse? We all need to be reminded sometimes that the Lord is in charge! NOTHING is too hard for Him.

Sometime ago we had a discussion on GW (the Gingerwood stamping board) about how to handle sending cards for people going thru tough times. There are situations where there are no words. It just dawned on me that a card using this verse or a verse like this would be perfect, because it changes the focus from the trouble to the One who can make a difference.



On a personal note: I go to the doctor on Monday to have my TB test read. (She wanted to make sure I hadn't been exposed to TB since she was going to suppress my immune system.)
The medicine so far isn't making me too sick. It's notorious for upsetting the stomach and I have a very sensitive stomach. I'm trying to figure out the best foods to eat with it, or before it so that I can avoid that yucky upset-ness. I'll get it figured out soon.

Wow! September is almost over. Where did September go?? ...Where did 2008 go?? I'm hoping to get my prayer list updated so that I can post it on October 1st. Please send me updates for the list ASAP.

Wondeful card! October is Pastor Appreciation Month and I have sent the pastors of significance in my life a "thank You" card in the years since I started stamping. Maybe that layout would be just right......

This is a beautiful card and I love the fact it is monochromatic.
Hope all turns out well for you.
The verse on this card is a wonderful one and I'm sure can be used over and over in many different ways. Pat

I haven't been to your site in a while, Jacki, and I just want to tell you that I am so touched by your photos that tell the story of your life. Your courtship, your wedding, your children... I love your whole family!!!! LOL!
I also want you to know I am praying for your healing, day and night. Peace and love to you, Jacki!
Love,
Rebecca (from GW)
