Word Art Wednesday #185

          Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a blessed and safe Memorial Day! The entire weekend my husband was on duty, my daughter was with her grandma, and my son was at Universal Studios for a friend's birthday so I just spent the weekend all by my lonesome :( There was really no relaxing for me because my fur-baby had taken a turn for the worse and I literally was up with her non stop. I got a couple occasional cat naps but that was about it. She is still not well but she has shown some improvement so I am staying positive and not giving up hope. Over the weekend I also was babysitting 16 baby chicks. Those chickies were so cute! It's amazing how fast they've grown in the 6 days I had them. The little soft fur was has already turned into feathers and their yellow coloring is starting to turn to browns and blacks. It was also quite neat to see how the changes in each one are so different too. While spending my time alone this weekend I as well reminisced about my military family and friends. I thought about all they have went through and still do. So many funny stories of time spent with their buddies but unfortunately so many sad ones too, way to many losses. One of those losses includes my cousin whom we lost on August 3, 2005 while he was serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. My heart goes out to all the other families who have lost loved ones to war. I am so appreciative and grateful for all the men and women who serve to protect this country! So that was my weekend. How about we get on to some crafty goodness.
          Today I am sharing another Word Art Wednesday card. This is for challenge #185 featuring scripture 1 Corinthians 2:5. I am in love with the pearlized card-stock I used! The picture doesn't do this card justice, that's for sure. We would love to have you play along with us at Word Art Wednesday, so after you finish my blog post please hop on over to their blog by clicking here: Word Art Wednesday Blog. Remember every Wednesday there is a new challenge you can join :) Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a beautiful and blessed day!
