Life's Ups & Downs

Do you ever feel like you are riding a roller coaster as you go through life?  Some days are full of laughter and sunshine only to be replaced by gloom and storm clouds.  I am so blessed to know that my God is able to see me through the ups as well as the downs of life.  Do you know Him?  Can you trust Him with your ups and downs?

My son recently showed me a picture that he found while on the internet or Facebook.  It was a picture of an EKG and said "If there are no ups and downs, you're dead".  When you think about it, that's really true.  The ups help keep us sane and feeling victorious.  The downs have the potential to teach us so much about ourselves, others, and even God.  I wonder if we would enjoy and appreciate the ups so much if we didn't have the downs to compare them too?  I really doubt it.

As I pondered the picture, I thought that you could make a great card of encouragement with this concept.  I don't think you will ever find a card like this anywhere else.  It is also most appropriate for someone in the health profession.  They will see the humor and understand.



Items I used:
DCWV - Le Creme and Textured matstacks
Prima "Say it in Pearls" black pearls
Fiscars - Scalloped Sentiment border punch
Paper Trey Ink - Vintage Cream Cardstock
Black Pen
Adhesive
EKG strip

The video below shows the steps used to create the card as well as the inside sentiment and finishing touches.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little - with all the ups and downs!
