Inspirational Lighthouse

Some days are just tough. No way around it. Even if we try to keep our eyes lifted up and turn over our troubles to God, they can still be challenging. I've never been one to worry as I find it a waste of energy. Most often there is nothing I can do in a worry situation, so I try to use that energy for prayer. A simple reminder is that God tells us to just let today's challenges be enough and not to fret about tomorrows.

I've always loved Laurie's images at Doodle Pantry but seldom get them out. I wanted a masculine feeling card for a friend who is supporting his wife during her cancer journey. This image was perfect paired with a DP sentiment.

It's hard to see, but I took my Y000 Copic and added a faint 'beam' of light coming from the image through the sentiment.
