bloom and grow...

Sometimes God puts us in situations we don't understand. Sometimes we are repeatedly faced with situations in which we want to bang our heads against a wall. Let me tell you, God has a reason for all that. No, He doesn't want us to head bang. No, he doesn't want us to stew in our frustration. He wants us to GROW. I say this as though I've mastered this lesson. Nope, I haven't. Perhaps that's where the inspiration for this Curtain Call card came from...

Lovely thoughts with your card. This speaks to the gardener in me. I would love to know where you came upon these seed packets!

Love both of your cards Tina, great inspiration from Gad, and the tiny fairy girl is just adorable sitting on the tiny mushroom! I can just imagine her swinging her little legs...

Looks like you had a great Easter, your kids are so sweet all dressed up, and we are always rushing off to church at the last minute also, so you are not alone there. I have as many of my kids who will go, sleep at my mom and dads house the night before in effort to get us there on time. You haven't reached that stage yet!!!

Enjoy spring! Love those fruit trees!
