Happy Sunday, and welcome to another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!
Our hostes this week, is Miesje. She has chosen John 14:27, as her scripture: "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid".
Miesje's challenge for the week, is to use a Christian symbol of peace, or to make a card or project that shows or shares peace.

In 1980, the love of my life, my DH received 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns over
nearly 80% of his body when our house burned.
As you can imagine, this was a very intense situation for us all.
We were told to expect the worst - he would probably not survive, and should he live,
he would be horribly disfigured.
This week's verse is special to me, as it helped to carry me through the days of his healing. There were the skin graft operations, the emotional strain, and once we got him home, the daily wound debridment, all while I was several months pregnant. Many years later, this same verse continues to carry me through difficult times in my life - the two military deployments of DS, watching DD struggle through, and triumph over an abusive marriage, then move away to Asia for over a year, the loss of our parents and grandparents, etc. The glorious peace of the Lord, and the peace that this verse has given me over the years has kept me calm and sane for my family.
I wish for all of you peace in this new week!
Smiles and blessings,
