Love One Another

Shortly after returning home from church today, I learned of the shooting in FBC Sutherland Springs TX. The news was heart-wrenching. As I followed the developing coverage I became more and more saddened. I often choose to stamp/color/create as a way of relaxing during stressful times... so I did that this afternoon. This card is a reflection of my feelings... we need to love one another. The senseless tragedies seem to come much too frequently. If only people didn't hate, didn't wreak havoc on others... but instead had love for others, then maybe these scenarios would cease.

I tore one of the edges on my card to represent broken/torn situation going on. I sponged ink to show that we are a damaged world. But the focal point is the image - Unity Love One Another.

Please pray for the people of Sutherland Springs Texas and for the First Baptist Church there.

Papers: Recollections Brown, Kraft, and White CS and Recollections Faith DP

Beautiful card and words to reflect this very sad tragedy. I saw the news and just prayed so hard for those families. This card really brings forth what all of our hearts are feeling- let's all live as He intended for us to do in harmony and love! *Standing ovation for this one!*
