Twist of Faith #37 - Square

As I type this post on May 20th, my heart is breaking for the people in Oklahoma who just endured a horrendous tornado. It's also the anniversary date of the Ruskin tornado that I was in as a 7-year-old. Ruskin Heights was a brand new housing area near Kansas City where most houses did not have basements.  It stayed on the ground for 70 miles and injured over 530 people. Tonight, so far, the death toll in Oklahoma is even greater than the 39 people who were killed in the Ruskin tornado. Most homes in that part of Oklahoma don't have basements either.

It seems that children were still having school in the elementary school that was destroyed. Please pray for the survivors and the rescuers that they will find all of those injured and buried under the debris. Those of us who were children that survived the tornado here many years ago still have nightmares and some fear of such weather. We share a firm conviction that we must go to a basement during tornado warnings. I'm praying that God will calm the hearts and minds of the people in Oklahoma and that God's people will lovingly minister to their needs.


This week's challenge theme at Twist of Faith is:
SQUARE!
We want to see SQUARE cards, or squares used in your card design.
Your creation should also include a scripture, uplifting verse or positive words/quote



This week we're sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. I used their image called Waking Up Birdie. See the Twist of Faith blog for more prize details.

Besides making my card a 6" x 6" square, I used some Basic Grey paper that had colorful stripes in small squares that made bigger squares. I also added 3 pewter square durables from CTMH on three of the squares on the upper left side.


 

 
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
365 Cards - Day 136-Words of wisdom
Dream Valley #57 - Animals
Kreativeinkauf #3- Anything that flies
Natalie and Amy's Challenge #9 - Things with wings (and colorful!)
