What If I Give All



The Christmas season will soon be upon us. I was thinking today just how blessed I am.  I have so much in my life and I am ashamed to admit that there are many things I forget to thank God for. I don't have to go hungry nor do my children and grandchildren. We have health issues in our family but we are all still alive and kicking. I could go on but I know you get the picture. So as Christmas approaches I have to ask myself, "What if I gave all? This season I am not going to ask for 'things' but rather think of ways that I can give. How about you? What if you gave all?
My card is a cute image from Sherri Baldy. She is all ready for Christmas! I colored the image with Copics and added glitter to the hat. I also dotted with Stickles around the image for some sparkle.  Little red dots of Stickles on the wings also added some pretty sparkle. I die cut my poinsettias and added some silver marker to the edges of the poinsettias and the holly leaves. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: What if I Give All
He heard the preacher say
A single dime can feed
A hungry boy or girl
With nothing to eat
So he pulled a dollar
From the pocket of his jeans
And he asked his mama
How many will this feed?
She just smiled
And when she told him ten
He reached back again
What if I give all I have?
What will that gift do?
My child, a gift like that
Could change the world
It could feed a multitude
He didn't close his eyes
Or turn away
I can see him standing tall
He saw the need
And I can hear him say
What if I give all
And long ago a Father and a Son
Saw the children lost in sin
Can you see the tears
In the Fathers eyes
As Jesus says to him
What if I gave all I have?
What will that gift do?
My Son, that gift
Will change the world
It will free the multitudes
What if I give all I have?

Sisters of Craft was the challenge that rejected by card. I did not read the rules as closely as I should have. I hate that I was drawn into this situation, "Not my monkey's not my circus"!
