All God's Children

"All God's Children" is the theme of a Blog Hop today, hosted by The Carriers of Faith. We are a blogging group over at SCS.

 
  "And Jesus took a child and put him in this midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me. " ~Mark 9:36-37


  Children find their joy in simplicity, as in the scene above. They can spend the entire day finding bugs under rocks or scattering seeds. When I think of children, I also think of their innocence and pure Love.

  I was fortunate to grow up in a very faith-filled family with 2 sisters and 4 brothers. We spent hours outdoors finding joy and entertainment in finding bugs, swimming and fishing and playing baseball. We would get refrigerator boxes and roll down the hill of the 1st riverbank......

 My card uses a digi image by Nicecrane Deisgns that I found through a Facebook group called Christian Cardmakers around the world. The digi sentiment is from Create with TLC. The background I learned in the latest Technique Junkies newsletter called Stencil Spray fun.

Beautiful card!! The image reminds me of a picture prayer book my sis owned as a child, later used by me, her kids & later mine. It's over 50 yrs old but I still have it somewhere. Didn't want to part with it only because of the pictures.

Hugs, Penny
Have a great weekend!

Shelly, your card is lovely and the verse is such a wonderful reminder! Hope you will join us for the blog hop on Monday. We are hoping to inspire people to send cards to a little 2 year old and her family. She is receiving chemo for Leukemia and being such a trooper too! Details at top of my blog! Hugs,
