DDD: Fluttering By + Wednesday Wisdom

Hi, friends!  It's Wednesday, and so that means it's time for me to post a creation using fabulous digi goodness from the Daydream Design's store!  This week I've got a CAS card with a butterfly on it--my favorite!

Here's my card~


For these fabulous challenges~





Last week I talked about how my life's journey isn't what I thought it would be.  It was terribly disappointing at first.  BUT, I have to tell you, the Lord knows what is best for me, my husband, and our marriage.  The trials we have gone through have only strengthened us and made us love each other more.  I am so grateful for the Lord and His all seeing view.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." - Proverbs 3:5

Sometimes it is hard to trust that something that seems like a trial can end up being the best thing that could happen to you.  I know that when I see trials given to me (not things I bring on myself--there is a difference!) as blessings, I start to have more strength to overcome them.  Most trials I have gone through have actually been HUGE blessings to me personally.  I am grateful that the Lord knows what I need to grow and progress.

Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you like it and I hope you go grab these digi elements from the Daydream Design's Store!  HUGS and happy {digi} stamping to you all!
