Are you F.R.O.G?

This little card was made for a friend of mine whose life has been quite a trial lately. Long ago and far away, I wish God had told Adam not to worry about that little bite of the apple and that we could have continued to hang all out in Eden for generations and forever, but if Adam was anything like the rest of us, he would have bitten more than we could chew eventually!

But praise our God, He thought of a different way to save us from ourselves. Jesus came and died for us and now we have new lives in Him that will get us back into paradise :) Some days in this world though, it's easy to say we're new creatures, but not so easy to do it with faith that all will come out for the best in the end. How do we live through times like these that try the soul?

Card Details: Basic Grey Euphoria DP; Dollar Clear Stamps {thanks Manna!}, Gina K Sateen flower colored with Copic Red, SU cardstock, SU's Glorious Green Ink
Well, the only answer is this: by fully relying on the One that we know will never leave nor forsake us, never let us down or leave us out--He gives us the key to living with JOY as we are His children and He gives us good gifts of grace and mercy, strength and faith....but to take His gifts, we must trust that His plans for us are the BEST that there could be and that maybe we just don't know everything there is to know about everything there is to know! I know one thing...I can't do this life alone--I need God! So yes, I'm Fully Relying On God!

Go FROG! You'll be hoppy you did! ;)
Have a blessed week!
