What is missing?

Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.

What a great reminder to be still and spend time with God. I know that my summer has been BUSY! Some of that business is just wasted time, and some of it is doing good things, but even good things if they keep me too busy to spend time with God are not good. Lord help me to make spending time with you this week a priority!



The challenge this week was to make a CAS card. I really struggled with this. I tend to make life more complicated than it needs to be. I used my Layers of Color creative flourish stamp on some ink spray and smashed paper and used my puzzle die cut to make the card. The sentiments were made using my computer.
This last week we had VBS at our Church. We shared the gospel simply with the kids.

1. We are all sinners.

2.We deserved death.

3. God loves us.

4.God sent Jesus to live a perfect life.

5. Jesus took our punishment by dying for us.

6. God brought Jesus back to life.

7. We can have salvation by asking Jesus to be our Savior.

8. Live for God.

Check out what my Stampin' Sisters in Christ have created.


  1. I hear your prayer need. Beautiful card Marilynn, and it is so true that being busy can be destructive of our relationship with God.

  2. Very nice card! Love the missing puzzle piece and the sharing! Fantastic! Have a great week!

  4. What an awesome card, love the sentiment. Have a wonderful 4th.

  5. Hi Marilynn! Your card is pretty and unique!! Love the puzzle pieces and the sentiment is perfect for it *Ü* Isn't VBS Fun?? Ours was a couple weeks ago and this was first year in many that I didn't work at it (didn't take vacation from my job) but the girls had a blast. It's always neat to see young people come to know Christ. Hope you have a FUN 4th of July weekend!! hugs, Kris

  6. Hi MariLynn! Amen to that prayer!!! I think we ALL need more of Him and less of everything else! Love your card! The puzzle with that sentiment is so clever and love the LOC Flourishes! Great job and I hope you have a blessed week my friend! After VBS... You REALLY need a few still moments! Praying you get them this week!

  7. Wow Marilynn!IO love the puzzle piece technique and the colors are awesome!Cool sentiments too!

  8. What a neat take on the CAS challenge, making it into a puzzle, so sweet! And VBS does keep people hopping, hope the hopping slows down so you have some time to find peace and quiet with the Lord. I know that if you say you're going to do it, you will! :) HAve a great week.
