Abound in the work of the Lord. .

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58

This scripture seemed fitting for the three young boys who are hard at work, or rather two are hard at work and one is watching from a comfortable spot. 1 Corinthians 15 is a marvelously encouraging chapter. . .reminding us of the eternal hope that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ. . .who is victorious over all of our enemies including the last enemy: death!  And it contains a reminder of the sweet promises of the Lord of the resurrection of our physical bodies. . .what is sown is perishable, but what is raised is incorruptible!! If you have not read this chapter (recently or at all) then consider it your reading assignment! You won't be disappointed: 1 Corinthians 15

 ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #97

This week the Our Daily Bread Designs' Challenge Team would like to see you use or craft a scene on your card.  The scene does not have to be a stamp, it could also be on your designer paper (the option I selected for this clean and simple card.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, February 24 at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, Feb. 24 at 8 a.m. EST.  If you upload your creations to ODBD, Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC97.
