God is Our Refuge

Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him. God is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:8

Christian Paper Crafts WCA107 {06-08-11} Maxine D

This scripture seemed so fitting for this week’s Christian Paper Crafts Wednesday CASE Artist Maxine D, she knows that God is her refuge and the only One who can hear and answer prayer. The love of Christ is apparent in the way she reaches out to her friends, neighbors and acquaintances that are enduring trials, and in the way she intercedes in prayer. In fact, Maxine D is a relentless prayer warrior, and does not hesitate to enlist the aid of her sisters in petitioning our heavenly Father that He might hear and answer according to His perfect will.

She lives in New Zealand, has been married nearly 40 years to her wonderful husband. She is a full-time homemaker and helpmeet. Her adult children are happily married and have blessed Maxine D with two beautiful grandbabies (and you can know with certainty that they have plenty of sweaters and even a new pair of dungarees, thanks to her ability to sew and knit.)

She loves card making, embroidery, lacemaking and gardening. She also loves using different techniques on her cards and the more intricate the better, like paper quilling and stitching. Maxine says, “I am first and foremost a child of God. My whole life and testimony can be summed up in three words: God is Faithful!”


This is your invitation to join me in honoring Maxine D, and to be inspired by her lovely gallery. So take a look through the gallery of Maxine D and create a card or project inspired by what you see there. Be sure not to copy exactly: make it your own! When uploading your card or project to the Christian Paper Crafts gallery, please use the keyword WCA107 (no spaces or commas). When posting anywhere else online, please use the keyword CPC-WCA107. Have a blessed day!
