Sometimes life is an uphill struggle ...

I was asked for make a card for friends to send to a keen cyclist who is going through a difficult time. I found this image free on the internet and thought it fitted the requested. I created the whole card digitally and then printed out. I wish I'd taken a picture of the actual card before I gave it to my friends because the digital image that I've saved hasn't made the card look as good as it was - somehow the jpg got saved with a weaker resolution. The text going up the hill is '... it is the Lord who goes before you,' Deut. 31:8.

It did look much better than this printed out ... honestly!
