Sunshine Behind the Clouds

On the 7th of each month, the SCS Crafters of Faith group shares cards made with a common theme, chosen by one of the members. These challenges are inspired by Scripture, though the cards themselves do not have to have a religious theme.

This month Sue challenged us to make and send a card that will encourage and build someone up.

Her Scripture inspiration was I Thessalonians 5:11 which reads: Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

It truly is my experience that there is sunshine behind the clouds. No matter what I'm going through, God is there watching over me, sending others to encourage and lift me up, and soon, the Son will shine through the gloom and restore my joy.

I hope Barb and the other Crafters of Faith like my card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
