My Hope

Yesterday, here in Canada, we celebrated Thanksgiving Day. I have to say that I am so thankful that I have Hope. Hope, that even when everything around me seems out of control and hopeless, I know without a shadow of a doubt that in the end all things will work out right for me. How can I have this Hope you ask; because I truly believe the words of this beautiful hymn: "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus'  blood and righteousness". I believe that Jesus is the Creator, Author, Sustainer, Redeemer and Lord of not only me but all that exists, and even though we can mess things up sometimes [ big time], I trust that because I have put my hope in Him, He will see me through. That's not saying everything in my life is a "bed of roses', but that I don't have to get down [and stay down and go deeper down] when unpleasant things happen  that affect me and those around me. I have to admit I don't see how anyone can survive in this world without hope. [I don't think I last a day]. I pray that you have/will find this same hope.
Let me share this simple card with you.
 
 
The DP was gift from my daughter, Jasmine. I used some musical Washi Tape to divide up the card. The layered flowers were cut using a Spellbinders' die, distress inked and given a pearl center. The circle and butterfly were cut using Memory Box dies. The lyrics sentiment was simply computer generated. Here are a couple of close up shots:


 
Thanks so much for stopping by and may you find yourself truly blessed today.
hugs,
Nancy

First off, how did I not know you were Canadian Nancy? And on top of that you live in Ontario! Me too. I'm in Sudbury, how about you? Okay, now on to your post...

I completely agree with you. Without hope, we truly have no chance of surviving with our sanity intact. Hope is the one thing that we need to latch on to if we want to survive and thrive. I am happy that you have something that helps you to sustain hope in your own life.

Your card is simply stunning. I love the damask DP, the musical note tape and those really cool flowers. Great vintage feel to the piece. Thank you so much for joining us this month on the Path of Positivity. It is always nice to see your lovely creations.

May you, yourself, always be able to draw on hope when you need it!
