Divine Design November

Good morning :) ! It's the 8th of the month...that means it's time for our Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge projects. I selected this verse from Psalm 107:1. Our country faces so many challenges right now, most families have been touched in one way or another by our floundering economy. Others struggle with health issues. My family has been faced with one big challenge after another this year, but we still have so many reaons to be thankful. In times of trial and challenge we often cry out to God for help, but forget to thank Him for the countless things He provides. Simple things...for instance, do you have access to clean, safe drinking water today? If so, you have a reason to be thankful. I was thinking of how many times I say thank you to people throughout my day. The checker at the grocery store, the doctor, my family, the postman, the list goes on and on. But how many times to I pause to tell God thank you? Hmmmm....probably not often enough. This month we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US and we reflect on our blessings. I'm going to make this my focus for the entire month of November and thank God every chance I get :) !
This has been a really busy month for the Scripture Chicks. We normally all post our projects today, but several of the girls will be posting their projects a little later this month. Here are the links to those blogs so you can pop over and say hi and see what the girls have been up to! Lori Craig ~ Make A Difference, Angel Wilde ~ Angelosity, Jami Sibley ~ More isMore , Taylor Van Bruggen ~ Taylored Expressions
I hope you'll join us for the Divine Design challenge, it's easy and all the details are right HERE! We've been making project since January (this is #11!), but you can jump in anytime. It's a fun way to combine our love of stamping with our love of scripture :) ! And if you upload your projects to the SCS gallery, be sure to use the keyword BVC08.
Thank YOU for stopping by! One of the things I'll be thanking God for today is my stamping & blogging friends. You bless my life :) !!!

Nancy - what a wonderful card, and a wonderful post!! I'm hoping that the Divine Design challenge carries over to next year. I'd like to start participating in the new year.
Thank YOU for reminding me how much I have to be grateful for my friend!
