Above the Storm

God moves in mysterious ways.  Sometimes we do not understand those ways; they don't make sense.  That is when we rely on our faith ("the just shall live by faith"), on the past, on scripture, on stories God has left us in the Bible, on events in our lives.  Stories of things that did not make sense to the people going through it but which makes sense on this side of the story .
I like the quote on this card because it is a reminder that God is in control.  Nothing takes Him by surprise.  We can trust Him.
the card base is Kraft, first blue layer is Stampin Up's Baja Breeze.  The layers behind the printed piece are Kraft and Blue Bayou.  The printed piece is from the 4.5 x 6.5 Travel Stack by DCWV.
Sentiment is ODBD.
