Swimming Like There's No Tomorrow

Sometimes in life, we just have to go with the flow, and others we have to swim like there's no tomorrow! Remember, God always has plans for us, even when things seem tough. When we face the challenges He sets before us, we grow and prosper in spirit, courage, faith, and, as my Gram used to put it, "intestinal fortitude." Though we know this to be true, it can be tough to persevere at times without a little -- or a lot -- of encouragement. Thank God for the blessing of friends and family who help us along!

For today's share we have a wonderful card of encouragement, created by Marji Franklin (a.k.a. "Tiggerscraps.") Marji made this using elements from the "Go With the Flow" set. You can see that Marji is adventurous in her crafting, as this card folds and unfolds in several different ways. I never can seem to get the hang of making these. Each new way that you open this card reveals more fun details -- wow!

This is a true showpiece, but more importantly, it is a source of incredible encouragement, and will be a huge blessing to whomever receives it!
