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!

Spellbinders Design Team Contest - More Exciting New!!!!!

Happy Monday!!!

It's definitely a happy Monday for me! Wow, I just found out that I made it through the second round of the Spellbinders Design Team Contest! You can read all about it here on their blog, if you would like!

What an amazing journey this has been for me so far. I honestly didn't think I had a chance, but I decided it couldn't hurt to try. Wow, I'm so glad I did!

Now onto the third and final round. This time I'll be doing a scrapbook page, which I haven't done in quite a while. That's okay though, I'm definitely up for the challenge. God has been with me so far, equiping me with what I need. I pray, if it's His will, that He will continue to do so. Praise the Lord for His abundant blessings and I give ALL the Glory to Him!
