Happy Sunday....

stamping friends!  Wow, this weeks has just flown by and I can't believe it is Sunday already. Anyhow, since it is Sunday I have a project to share with you all that I made for this weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. This week it is the super talented, Miesje Flach, that is hosting our challenge and Miesje has chosen the following scripture

Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery

The challenge is to create a

Red, White, and Blue thank you card.



This scripture had me thinking for a minute and this is what I got from it. When we decide to give our life to Christ we are a new creature. Washed white as snow and all of our sins are no more, right? Well, this is what my Bible tells me, so it has got to be true, since the Bible is the WORD of GOD!! So, since we were set free, we can rest asured that we have to walk no lnger in the believes we had before we decided to get saved and since all of our sins has been washed away in the sea of forgiveness, those sins and things we did, should not weigh us down any longer. See, the devil is trying it's hardest to make us believe that we are nothing and that we never will be anything, but THANKS to Jesus we are FREE, we have to set our minds on the things that God himself promises us and walk the walk of faith. It is totally up to us what we do with that blank slate that God has given us. We make our choices, yes, that is true, but if we feed on the word of God and see in his unchanging word, that he has a plan of success for all of us that believe in him, we will be able to enjoy that freedom and will be able to walk the walk. Thank You JESUS, for all that you have suffered, so I can be free.

All right, these are my thought on this scripture and now let me share my card with you.  I did not want to go the traditional "red/white/blue" route so I changed it up a bit and just took my DP as my inspiration. Have a look and see for yourself

Thank You.....
