"Be still and know that I am God."

Lord, Your words lead us to the
calmness and greatness of your presence.

You are here.. with us ..every moment.. whether we are light or heavy burdened. Even in the Storm, you are present, protecting us, leading us, carrying us.. like a lamb that needs love, protection, guidance.. I need your Love Lord. But then you leave me free to choose if I want you or not.. What will I choose?

Lord, may I never take the gift
of freedom for granted. You gave
me the great blessing of freedom of
spirit. Fill my spirit with Your peace and
Your joy.

Matthew 7:7-12

Jesus said to the crowds, "Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Yes, I trust in you Lord. You always gave me the best for me, not what I want.. but what is best for me, for my Soul.. because you are a Loving Father. I trust you and wnat you in my life. Come Lord Jesus... Come!

"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
C. S. Lewis

Easter Blessings- ODBDSLC3

Hi! I'm Rosette, and I decided to start a second Blog, a different one from my Cute card and crafts Blog. Once in a while, I used to create Spiritual Cards and blog about them on my Blog. Other times I posted a reflection or prayer, but not so very often. Unfortunately I always felt that they weren't really appreciated there, so I decided to make a new, seperate Blog for them and for sharing thoughts, videos with a message, a prayer once in a while, and cards that help people glorify the Lord.. our Wonderful Saviour. I hope that once in a while you'll pop in here, and share with me this journey of Faith, Hope and Love. I decided to name this Blog "I do not live by Bread alone".. because it's entirely true. My Daily Bread is Jesus more than anything else, and while I dedicated my whole life to Him, I'd like also to help others "taste and see that the Lord is Good".

Now, after this brief introduction as my first post here, I'd like to share with you a card I made for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge: A Secret Admirer.

It's the first time I'm using ODBD stamps, so please bear with me :) I found this awesome ODBD challenge Blog, and wanted to participate as well.I cased Becca Feeken's card, which can be found here.

As for papers I used Papermania Jesse Edwards ans Nostalgia Warm.
Stamps: The Cross of Christ (ODBD), Grunge Stamps Stempelglede
Distress Ink: Pine Needles
Tools: Spellbinders Flourishes and Labels, Marta Stewars punches (leaves punch and Doily lace), Fiskars punch for the corners.

A close up of the Distressing around the panel.

I hope you'll let me know you've been here, as you can see my Blog is still a Works in Progress. I will add content, list of blogs and Challenges when I will know more about them. I need your encouragment and suggestions in the progress :) If you would like to see my other Blog, you will find it here . There is also a tab on my sidebar which will take you there as well.

Many Blessings, and Smiles!!
