Pink Baby Bonnet Card

This is a pink baby bonnet card I made sometime ago. I traced around the template I made from cardstock, folded it in half, then drew in the "stitches" with a rose colored marker. Punched the holes down the "lace ruffle" with a rectangular hole punch and threaded pink ribbon through the holes, tying off the end. I thot it was quite cute!

Devotion: God is Our Source

"a kind word cheers him up." ~ Proverbs 12:25

As I was thinking on kindness, I remembered a certain rubber stamping website I visit frequently in which members enjoy surprising others with RAKS (random acts of kindness). RAKS usually contain a beautifully decorated card and sometimes, small gifts such as sample-sized artist supplies. It gives the RAK-giver joy to share a bit of cheer with someone. It's kinda like sharing a cup of cold water with the thirsty (Mt. 10:42). I know as I've been on the receiving end a time or two!

Prayer: Daddy, I need your help today. I don't come by kindness naturally and I know you delight in it. When I moan and groan about the "exercise clothes" I must put on to follow you, gently remind me that I'm yours, dearly loved. Season my words today with kindness to make them a reflection of you. In Jesus' name, Amen!
