Looking at the closed door...


Years ago when I was tormenting myself over a heartbreak, I first heard this quote in a little different way.

"Whenever God closes a door, He opens a window."

But, I had been standing so long at that closed door, I neglected to see the open window. 
It is something that I try to remember each time I am faced with disappointment or when things aren't really going my way.

But...we all know it isn't always easy.


Splitcoaststampers had a LOVEFEST of challenges this month. 
I created this one: an encouraging card.

Pretty, pink...and encouraging!
