Key To Peace and Joy

This quote is such good advice.  I keep telling myself to enlarge it and make it into something to hang on my wall.  I might even use this sketch and same papers.   But for now - a card.

The sketch at Sketch Saturday was a great sketch for this quote.  I used embossed paper with clock hands to represent moments.  The key(die) is cut out from the designer paper on the left to represent the key to peace and joy.  The quote reminds me of the Bible verses, Philippians 4:6-7,   "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
It is easy to praise and thank God in the happy, good moments.  Much harder to thank Him and trust Him in the tough times.  "In everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
 I Thessalonians 5:18
I made this card for someone going through some tough physical and financial problems.  I hope it will be encouraging.

  3. A lovely quote and so beautifully made into this lovely card. I particularly like your paper choices with the key embellishment and how the quote is secured in place with those photo frame thingies - the name of which is totally escaping me!!!
