Tag Tuesday #38 ~ Monogram

This week's theme for Tag Tuesday at Kard Krazy is Monograms. I just happened to receive some fun blog candy from Shawnte Parks that serendipitously contained some pretty chipboard letters. Thanks so much, Shawnte, for the great package of goodies. Pretty as the letter N was in the package, I couldn't leave it that way. So, I sanded, inked and stamped until it was exactly what I pictured in my mind. This tag represents a bit of my current journey of faith. Finding myself at a cross-roads at this point in my life, I'm letting go of some dreams from the past, celebrating them, but letting them go. Looking forward to each new day with a heart of gratitude and expectation.
Thought for the Day: Hebrews 12:1-2  Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.
Blessings to you for your walk of faith,
nancy
