Can You Speel E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D?

Oh my oh my...............we are all so tired but so happy that our 30 teens from church and their pastor and advisors enjoyed themselves at our home today.  We hosted the teen leaders meeting for August here and provided hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, watermelon and pop. 
Kids came early to swim and have fun in the pool.  We had thunderstorms and rain close to the time we were supposed to start but the rain held off and Tim was able to cook outside on the grill so we didn't have to do the broiler inside.
  We did so much to get ready for this event that we're all exhausted. 
However, I was able to force myself to stamp and a brayer a card tonight.  Here is the bag I used for inspiration for my card.

Here's the card I made after looking at this bag.  This is for the Inspiration Challenge today. A little late, but I got to it! Woohoo! I stamped each of the flowers after coloring it with markers. Then I colored each flower with versamark marker and embossed with clear embossing powder 2 times. Then I brayered the background. The inspiration for this was a turquoise bag with flowers.

I heard a song today by Josh Wilson called Before the Morning.  It sure made me think about the struggles in life we go through.  But God is there and always in control, holding us and helping us through it all.

Check out this video that tells WHY the song was written.  Isn't it amazing when we see before our eyes the things God can do.  How could anyone NOT believe in God?

Thlanks for stopping by and I hope you are blessed by the music and words of the videos today.
Bless you and may you feel God's love all around you.
