Super Sketch Sunday Challenge #12

Yesterday, when I was blogging about my love for lemons, an idea popped into my head about Amy's SSS #12. The card pictured here is that very idea. I have a friend that has three daughters and a son. Her daughters are my daughter's ages, and they grew up together. Her youngest daughter just recently went through something painful. I've been trying to come up with a card idea to make so that I could send it to her. This was a two for one sort of thing. Amy's sketch was just what I needed.

This young lady is Christian and truly knows where her help comes from. She is a real trooper. Even in the hardest moments she knows God will not let her down, and that she can completely count on Him. Though she did not need me to tell her this, on the inside of the card (along with a personal note), I wrote out Nehemiah 8:10b, "...the joy of the Lord is your strength". Since joy is a fruit of the Spirit, and a lemon is a fruit, I thought this card came together pretty well. :-)

Oh by the way, her son is a Ranger in the Army and is scheduled to go to Iraq this year. I thought I would stop here for just a second and pay honor to him. Thank you, Jon. This might be a good time to insert a little something I saw for the first time two days ago.
