Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Merry Snowman

Hi there!

I have another Christmas card to show you, this time no pinks! This is a stamp from Serendipity called "Snowman & Birdhouse". I colored this image last month while I was on vacation using my Prismacolor pencils. Finally got around to making it into a card.

The sentiment is from Short & Sweet (SU). The papers used are solar white (Neenah), real red (SU), mat pack earth (DCWV), and typhoon (Bazzills). For ink I used black (VersaFine). Other accessories used are Aleene's paper glaze, crystal snow (Stampendous), diamond stickles, piercer, snowflake punch (Marvy), square punch (EKS), large labels (Spellbinders), floss, weaving fibers, buttons, marker (SU), Prismacolor pencils, and mineral spirits.

Thanks for looking!
