Fun on Friday challenge at CPC. This was a great challenge and a pleasure to participate in. Worry, fear and doubt cannot plaque me when I am meditating on the sovereignty and goodness of God. He takes care of even the smallest birds in the sky, how much more has He taken care of me? More than I sadly take the time to be grateful for on most days. Thanks for stopping by, and I pray that you are blessed AND thankful for it!
I went into my craft room intent on finishing a project and was dismayed that my Big Shot was making a terrible grinding noise and protesting any turning. I asked my hubby to take a look at it, but was already trying to figure out where I could get another one cheap and fast. I was also greatly frustrated because I knew that it most likely had something to do with the salt and humidity here (my ongoing arch-nemesis)! He could see those wheels turning and wanted to save himself some $$ and went to work! He dismantled the entire thing and found one bearing that was rusty (proving my theory). He was able to clean and lubricate it and reassembled the whole thing in no time at all. It honestly works better now than the day I bought it!! I should have never had a doubt! I love that man and am so thankful for all the little things he does daily that just make my life better! I thought I'd share the pics in case you ever wondered what the inside of your Big Shot looked like!

Bible Verse Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts. Abby does such a wonderful job with this challenge each week, her blog is also just such a sweet refreshment for me. She has the most serene and sweet spirit that just translates even across the web. At any rate, I chose to ink up one of my Lizzie Anne Design stamps for this challenge ( I am sad to see them closing), because I wanted a more rugged lighthouse image. This is a pretty simple card which is usual for me, but I think it came together nicely and will be for an encouragement to my pastor this week. Walking by faith and advancing the Gospel is not the life for the faint of heart...and can be challenging. It is good to encourage others always, especially those who are dedicated to proclaiming the Kingdom. May the Grace of God be with you today.
