Good Morning, I have been carrying this card around for several days trying to get a decent picture, but here it is. This is my card for the Hymn and Scripture Challenge. When I first saw it, I just couldn't find a verse OR think of anything creative. Sometimes God has a different idea and He just waits for us to catch up. That's what happened this time. I just kept praying "Open my eyes, Lord" about anything and everything I had a problem with. One of the things was my resentment of my job. It has recently become way more demanding and the job I used to love is not the same job anymore. So I determined to be thankful anyway - even for the fact that I have to go in. It's a family business and my attitude can make or break the day for everyone around.
One day it occurred to me that if I didn't go in to work, I would rarely get to see my busy, busy son. I believe it was God who opened my eyes to this fact. So was it because I first obeyed by being thankful (barely) or because God is merciful and loving. Anyway He opened my eyes which helped me to be very grateful. The two phases I picked out are "Glimpses of Truth" and "The wonderful key". I believe the key is Thankfulness. My verse is Psalm 25:15 "My eyes are ever looking to the Lord for help".
