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!

Heartfelt Creations - Beautiful Juliet

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It's time for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration!  This week I have another card using the beautiful Sweet Juliet Collection!

This image is from the Beautiful Juliet Set.  Such a pretty and delicate image!  I colored this with my pencils and mineral spirits and add a little pencil shading on 3 of the letters.  With the image being more tall and slender, I used the Labels 4 and 8 Die shapes to compliment it.

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the Designers this week!

I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #103 - Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by!
