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 - Love, Joy, Happiness

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I'm so excited that I made another 6 month term with Heartfelt Creations!!!  I LOVE creating for them, and I'm so thankful to be able to continue!  Thank you to all who voted for me!

For my creation this week, I used the Moments With You Set from the new Sweet Juliet Collection.  I love these images that you can use with the circle shape dies, so beautiful!

I love coloring these images!  Here's a little close up...

I really love the purple and brown color combo on this!  I colored this with pencils and mineral spirits and added some microbeads to the flower centers.

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations this week and to see all the new design team members!

I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #104 - Anything Goes.
