Salt: God's Strength

Julie has chosen 'God's strength' as the theme for this fortnight's challenge on Salt. You can read what she says here.

This verse is such an encouragement to me and one that I have proved time and time again through various circumstances. All my life I've had health struggles (or should that be ill-health struggles? - depends whether you see the glass as half full or half empty, I guess!). As a couple we have been through many difficulties times for one reason or another - and through all of this, I have always found that indeed God's grace is sufficient and He is our strength in our times of weakness. Many of you know that in recent weeks we have been concerned once again about John's health. The news we got yesterday is a testimony to God's goodness and His grace towards us and we pray for His continuing strength to see us through this time.

I decided to make a card for this challenge, one that can be used to encourage someone who is going through a difficult time.

The background paper is Imaginisce Go for Baroque Rendez-vous Who? - it is double sided, so the square in the middle has been turned over. I love the blend of colours in this paper. The leaves, swirls and flowers all came in the swap RAK I received this week.



Please pop over to our Salt blog and see the beautiful crafting of the team. And perhaps you will feel prompted to make something and share with us - we would love that.
