This verse has always been so challenging and encouraging to me!
Challenging because it reminds me that people are watching me...my actions, behavior, attitude...and it can speak to them of God.......or not! Awesome responsibility!
But also encouraging because the light I am to let shine does not originate from me. The origin of that Great Light is Jesus Christ Himself, living in me, indwelling me by His Holy Spirit. Awesome priviledge!
So I wanted the Bible verse itself to be the main focus on this card. The lighthouse stamp always makes me think of Jesus, our Lighthouse...our guide who sheds light on our dangerous path, keeping us safe.
The stamp is one that I bought at that lighthouse: the Big Sable Point Lighthouse at Ludington State Park in Michigan. Its great for men's cards, graduation cards, and encouragement cards.
The little ivory half pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty.
The verse is a copy of the FREEBIE available this week at
and I am entering it in their challenge this week, #30.
I am also entering it in the challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ because the verse mentions "heaven" and that is part of the theme this week at SSiC, challenge #142.
The last challenge I am entering this card in is the one at Our Daily Bread Designs, #110, a color challenge which includes the colors pink, black and/or grey, and white/vanilla.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week! May the great God in heaven bless you!
