School Bus Shaped Card

Welcome back friends ♥ I pray you are having a wonderful day! The LORD is good... all the time; and all the time, the LORD is good :)

Today a small group of women met for Bible Study in a beautiful, warm and comfy home. We viewed the 1st session of "Believing God" by Beth Moore. This is not a new study, and a few of us had already gone through it, but we also knew that God's timing is always perfect...indeed right on time!!!

My faith has once again been challenged. Since going through my cancer journey almost 6 1/2 years ago, I've felt like I was struggling to get out of the darkness...the wilderness...a place that was just dry and felt so far away from God. It felt like once I was up, I was knocked back down with something else...my physical health, my mental health, my emotional health, and certainly my spiritual health!

So today, here's what I'm beginning to BELIEVE once again. I challenge you to do the same :)

1. God is who He says He is.
2. God can do what He says He can do.
3. I am who God says I am.
4. I can do all things through Christ.
5. God's Word is alive and active in me.

Update on counseling... I've decided to change counselors! Things just weren't quite right, so I've decided, "Off with her head!!!" hee hee. Hubby and I are now on a waiting list to see someone who has been highly recommended as a Christian counselor. I'm choosing to BELIEVE that God is in all of this and He certainly CAN DO what He says He can do!

God is faithful. Period. He continues to work out forgiveness in my heart ♥ It simply doesn't have the control and intensity it had 6 weeks ago. Am I 'done'? Noooo... remember, it's a process. I can choose to hold on to unforgiveness and remain bitter and angry, but I'm choosing to BELIEVE GOD is setting me free from my pain - and He is :)

Thank you for praying for me!!! He hears and is answering your prayers on my behalf. I'm incredibly grateful for YOU ♥

...and finally...

I'd like to share my latest project I created using Regina's adorable Bus Shaped Card which is available at The Cutting Cafe HERE.

I've altered the file a little bit by taking the window shapes and cutting out 'see through' windows on each layer using my Silhouette Designer's Edition Software. I substituted apples from the School Borders Printable Stamp Set for the center of the wheels, and spelled out S C H O O L from the same set.

The tag is a MS punch; stamped tag background and sentiment from PTI.

The Bus Shaped Card file also comes with an envelope which fits perfectly with this adorable card :) I used a 12 x 12 sheet of Yellow Pin Dots by Recollections to cut out the envelope.

So cute!

Time for me to celebrate my firstborn's birthday now... he's 27!!!

♥♥♥ I love you, Matthew ♥♥♥

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
