Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Delightfully random

I loved this Trigger picture and it triggered the card I made below. The challenge can be found here.

I used a left-over piece of vellum to represent the doily texture and the banner shape,  also a Hero Arts mini stitch stamp to get the effect of the stitching from the inspiration picture. I also cut out two mini stamped hearts to represent the heart doily shape.

We are enjoying some beautiful clear sunny weather here, just as it should be in these parts :) I have all puffy eyes at the moment but the strength is returning in my legs and arms which I'm thankful for! Thank you once again for your continued support, it so lightens my load!

I received this poem today inside a card and wanted to share it - I hope it blesses those who are going through a hard time at the moment!

He Giveth More Grace

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

His love has no limit; His grace has no measure.
His pow'r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!

Annie Johnson Flint

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.


Have you ever really thought about this verse - to glory in infirmities??? Its worth thinking about!
