I can't get enough of the bee hive paper in the BERRYLICIOUS line --- so here is another card using that cute bee and Melinda's sketch:
Currently the weather here in Washington is rain, rain, rain and more rain. The creek is over it's banks, baseball is put on hold and the skies are continually bleak and grey. Normally by this time of the year, the lack of sunshine and activity is starting to really get to me and the depression is on the edge. However, this year, all I have to do is remind myself of all the people suffering in Japan right now and I know I have cause to be grateful.
"Lord, thank you for the rain - thank you for your protection on my family - thank you for your strong power to lean on and be comforted by. I pray for all those people suffering because of the disaster in Japan. May they call out to You so You can carry them through. In Your name, Amen."
Borrowing these great works from a friend - thanks, Krista!
