These were the cards that I made for Monday's technique challenge, to make tickets. The top card is also for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge to use 3 buttons on a card.
I would have posted these sooner, but I have been dealing with my "REAL LIFE" My teenage son has had an episode of bullying. Remember the children's phrase... sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me? We all know the truth. They do hurt. Someone started a rumor at his school that he had said horrible hurtful things to a girl in a text. I don't allow him to text, so I know that the rumor was untrue. It escalated to them threatening him after school, and then threatening him on facebook. When I saw the death threats, it made me angry and I wanted them punished. Then God worked on me. I came to realize that my reactions were that of the world, and not ones that would reflect God's will. Love your enemies, Pray for your enemies, Forgive your enemies. Such easy things to say when you don't have enemies, but when you do it is the hardest thing to do. In fact I couldn't do it. My son and I prayed that God would give me His Holy Spirit to do it through me. I have spent time since then praying for these children. God allowed me to see them in a new light. He helped me to see his lost children that he loves. I am working on giving over my fears for my son's safety as well.
