He Makes All Things Beautiful

Let's be perfectly honest.....we all want things to happen according to our own time-line.  When we need or want something, we want it NOW.  But, we're so much happier and so much better off when we are able to realize that God has everything under control, and that He's always busy taking caring of things.  And we will see the results and get all our answers, IN HIS TIME.
Ecclesiastes 3:11(a) says, "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time".  I know that I have certainly been blessed by this verse.  It takes time and spiritual maturity to accept this truth, however.  When we learn to wait on God, and always trust that He has our best interest at heart, we will experience a peace that passes understanding.  God really does have it ALL under control.  Just sit back, and trust Him.  He makes all things beautiful in His time!

I'm sharing my card in Hazel's challenge here:
Crafy Hazelnut's March Patterned Paper Challenge - I used some older Making Memories Chloe's Closet patterned papers and embellishments.

  8. Karen,
    Your choice of brighter colors and patterns has indeed worked well. I would not have known it was yours until I examined the machine stitching. I also like that the Word has centre stage. Blessings Carole
