God is Big

Phew! I think I made it through my husband's massive overtime period...not sure I made it out in flying colors. I will admit it got a little rough there in the it is winter...all adding up to some emotional moments for me in dealing with the kids normal behaviors. But I feel a weight has at least been lessened, so I am thankful. But after reading a story of a fellow stamper (I do not know her personally), I am far more thankful to be healthy and have the family I do. See, Katie has stage 4 cancer and she actually has to think about that she may have a defined number of days left with her three kids. How does one handle that? In my opinion, you don' give it to God to handle and just pray that you can follow what God has in His plan. Believe not an easy task for me, a control freak, and that is only for minor in comparison problems.

The Color Throwdown Challenge Blog has decided to do this week's challenge in support of Katie...there is even a prize involved. So while I would have no idea what to say to Katie besides I will pray for you, this quote from Paper Makeup Stamps makes me remember that sometimes our problems are too big for us to handle and we need to give them to God. So I will be sending this card to Katie and I will continue to pray for her and her family.

The Color Throwdown Challenge #124 is to use Melon Mambo, Soft Sky, and Early Espresso. Very nice color combo, but I had only a smidge of Soft Sky left and no ink of any sort in that color. So I had to limit my Soft Sky portion of the card. I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #173 for the layout, turned 90 degrees.

So if you can, join me in making a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge and send it to might just be rewarded with a prize! Also check out Katie's blog...she is basically journaling her way through her treatment and it is definitely a story you need to read. Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
