Lighthouses...



Above is a photo of the lighthouse at Copper Harbor Michigan. During our recent trip to the Upper Peninsula, John and I took in quite a few lighthouses. There was something very comforting about them. And I'm sure on a dark and stormy night, those lighthouses give a measure of comfort to sailors navigating the unpredictable waters of Lake Superior. In my mind, I can picture a tense crew battling an uncertain storm seeing that light peaking out from the hill. I see them breathing a sigh of relief, knowing they were close to land and thus safety.

I think this is very similar to our walk as a Christian. There are often times when the seas of life are choppy. We are certain we will be swallowed up. But then you cast your eyes up and there He is. You can feel the Lord's presence and you know that safe harbor is at hand.



I spotted this beautiful stamp while browsing in A scrapbook store in Calumet Michigan. I love shopping in local stores. I miss having a LSS in our area and I seize the opportunity when I travel. I thought this stamp would make some beautiful note cards.

I stamped the image on kraft paper with Memento Rich Cocoa and ripped carefully around the image. I embossed the card itself and adhered the stamped image with dimensional foam. The embellies are Mosaic tiles and the anchor can from a set of brads I picked up a Michaels. I hope you enjoy today's card and don't forget to cast your eyes upward. Blessings!
