Romans 8:28 Gatefold Easel Cards

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans out there!  

This time I'm sharing a gatefold easel card using a Silhouette Design Studio cut file from Lori Whitlock. I send a card to a group of shut ins at my church every week, and I try to include an encouraging scripture each time. I love this verse from Romans that assures believers that God works all things for the good of those who love Him (the word art is from the Silhouette Design Store and is design number 349939). What peace this truth gives us when facing sorrow, uncertainty, or injustice in our lives!
