LNS Challenge 232 / Sketch 281 - Monday Lunchtime Sketch

To all my friends out there, Happy Monday to YOU!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was very busy as normal, but a relaxing Sunday afternoon.  Now I am starting a new week and am looking forward to what God has in store for this week.  I have found out that I have not been as happy lately at work (a lot of changes, more work, no more pay) and even when I am playing with my paper. I almost felt as though I was being punished, but what for?  And, I realized that I was even making the people around me sad.  My very own daughter told me to "Get Over it Mom,  maybe God is trying to show you something."  WOW, what wisdom my "sweet" daughter has.  So last week as I was reading in my Bible, I read 2 Chronicles 20 and boy did God show me something in this.  If you want to know what God can do for you, just read that chapter and you will see just how mighty He is.  It made me re-look at my relationship with Him and to realize that God has placed me where I am right now for something big.  I may not see it yet, but in the mean time I am going to be still and know that it will all work out for His glory and my good.  I just had to share this with you and now on to the challenge at hand!
 
This weeks challenge for Late Night Stampers is to use the bling and then I used Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch to make the card.  And, I decided to use the Festive Flurry stamp set and the framelits.  I am very happy with the turn out and now you can see it!
 
 
I also used the Snow Flurry embossing folder as the background for this card, which added a little dimension to it.
 
Here is a side view.

Yes, God is merciful and mighty. I also like Jeremiah 29:11. It is also good to remember that God will never leave us nor forsake us. We should learn to focus more on God than our surroundings and situations.
