Hi friends ~ it's officially 12:01 here on May 3rd - and today is National Day of Prayer! What a glorious way to start the day and let it carry you through! For me personally, I start and end each day in prayer with a multitude of times in between. It warms my heart, puts a smile on my face, and refreshes my soul :)
Hebrews 4:16 says "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Truly he hears us, our prayers. He is bigger than any storm we could possibly be facing - an anchor I held on to so tightly during the last month. But remember ... with our God we can scale a wall! (Psalm 18:29)
Each month, the Calendar Girls group posts a challenge for us to follow and create a card based on those instructions ...... and this month our hostess, Miss April (who's real name is Terry!) gave us a whopper of a challenge! Woah Nellie, did I do a double take with this one ~ but what fun is challenge if it doesn't make us go outside our comfort zone! Although I struggled with the sketch and more so with the measurements, I finally created my barn quilt card :)
Thanks Terry for this awesome challenging challenge! :) Be sure to stop by the rest of the Calendar Girls and see what they did with this awesome sketch -- you can find them in my sidebar.
Blessings to you all this most precious of days in rememberence of our Savior, the one who gave his life so that we may all have this one we are graced with!
