Broken Dreams
(By Lauretta P. Burns)

As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God because He was my friend.

But then instead of leaving them with Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried, "How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said, "What could I do? You never did let go."

Here are two of my newest cards.


  1. Thank you for another conviction....I think....! Your cards are gorgeous! Is the first one a print or anactual emboidery, it is such a delightful image! Thank you for sharing! xxx

    1. Actually it is a recycled card. Thanks for commenting! Hugs.

  2. Oh my, convicting indeed! It's amazing how many times I will take something to the Lord only to try and take it back or like your poem said, stick around thinking I can do more than God. Thank you for sharing, dear friend.

    And your cards are incredibly beautiful! Have a joyous week. Hugs!

  3. What lovely cards Mehrll. I love that embroidered panel, it is so realistic.

    You wanted to know where I got the vertical stamp from - it was from http://www.montarga.co.nz/, go to craft stamps; rubber stamps - craft; birthdays and they are on page three.
    Hope you can follow what I just said, but they don't seem to have a direct link to the page.


  4. Wonderful cards dear sweet friend, I'm so behind I hadn't even seen your post well done indeed on your top three at WAW, and both cards are definite favourites!! ❤️❤️❤️Love the poem and so true we do love to hold onto our burdens and order the answer to it,
    Love Shaz.x
