More on Hope...

More thoughts on Hope.

Psalm 33:21  “In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.”

“When a sudden storm strikes a ship at anchor, only the links of the chain and the anchor wedged in the rocks keep vessel and crew from being set dangerously adrift. Obviously the more tumultuous the times, the more important the mourings.  In our own stressful moments, our hopes need to be  anchored securely – not to wishes or feelings, but in God’s promise.  As the author of Hebrews said, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19 “
The above quote is taken from a devotional by James Dobson entitled Night Light,  When I read this paragraph it helped me focus on where my focus needs to be on a daily basis.
We have recently had a change in where we go to Worship. It has not been easy after going to the same fellowship for over a decade.  The name of the church is Anchor. Maybe I needed to meditate on Hebrews 6:19 as we go through transition and meet new friends that we can encourage in the Word and be encouraged by others.

This past week (Fall Break) we did not have Friendship International so I didn’t post a new card because we didn’t have class. So now, I will post the third card in the workshop.

This is found in the Originals book on page23 and (picture on page 44).  I really enjoy seeing how color changes the whole look of a card. That is one reason I love Close To My Heart  how to books.
I do want to thank the ladies that came to my home workshop Thursday since class was canceled. It was fun having more time and also a lot of fun meeting the kids that are in nursery during our classes. Thank you all for making the effort to travel to my Versailles home.
Have a hopeful week!
Always, Alayne
