Fear Not, Neither Be Dismayed!

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
We have had another outpouring of wonderful art again this week. We appreciate you all very much.
Today I put a picture of my sweet little SparkPlug who has departed. He was so brave right up until the last day when I had to take him to Orleans Veterinary Hospital. These professionals have been a blessing to our pets for a long time. Brenda, from Brenda's Country Clips a Master Groomer was such a blessing to us in so many ways.
SparkPlug  was such a faithful wee friend who I miss a lot.  Cricket, his brother is still wandering about like a lost dog which he is.

I made this card for my brother Harvey. We had a train track in the back of our property when we grew up in Osgoode in the 50-60’s. So this wonderful engine will bring him many happy memories. This stamp set stamps beautifully. 
I will post it under @carolerobb   #imbringingbirthdaysback 

This weeks Scripture always calms me and encourages me to press in and trust the One who created me more and more. I hope you will keep a copy of the word art. 
Here is some FREE digital word which you are welcome to use BUT it is not required. 
This is our 221st challenge. Thank you so much for taking time to share your wonderfully creative art with us. We appreciate your participation and we love seeing your creations.

I am so sorry to hear about SparkPlug. He was such a precious little dude. I believe that Dogs' unconditional love are a perfect model for what God wants of us. I also really like your card, since I've loved trains ever since I was a child. May the peace of the Lord be with you, my friend.
