Time for Refreshment

What a busy summer.  Hubby and I have been working like crazy on our yard and property after years of neglect.  We have had children and grandchildren staying with us since the last few days of June and will have someone here every day until the 21st of July. (different guests but constant).  I am already tired - mostly tired of cooking and cleaning!  And I miss the quiet and alone time.  One thing I have missed is my mornings out on the deck with just my coffee, Scripture, and God. 
I made a few cards (before the madness hit), with the intention of sending them to some people struggling with health and financial needs.  I never got around to writing inside and therefore never sent them.  As I was straightening up my office, I saw them and it was such a good reminder to me to be still (which can be translated from the original language to "relax") and know that I am God. Even in the busyness of the days, it is good to just be still, at least for a bit, and relish in the goodness of God and His blessings.
Each card is a bit different with different Copic colors,  Stickles, and cardstock.  Not sure which one I like the best.

The verse is digital.  The image is a Stampin Up stamp.   I used Tim Holz Tumbled Glass distress ink on the edges of each.

Pile It On - hot fun in the sun
