Be Still

Sometimes in life we just can't make sense of why things happen the way they do. When those times occur in my life this verse gives my heart great comfort because it reminds me first of my need to be still and secondly that My Heavenly Father is on His throne and that He is perfect in all of His ways. It causes my heart to be grateful despite my circumstances. There is a great devotional on Thankfulness at Stampin' Sister's in Christ if this topic is of interest to you. Thanks for stopping by and may you find time to stop and be still.

So good to hear from you again!

I love your card. It's one of my favorite verses too. And I love the simplicity of the white with the grain in the background. It really is perfect to use the CAS design with that verse. It quiets you. I just love it!
