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 - Peace

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I have a Christmas card for you today with this beautiful "Peace" image from the Peaceful Night Set from Heartfelt Creations.

(Click on photo for a closer view)

I love this blue and brown color combo together for Christmas!  I stamped the image on Solar White and colored it with pencils and mineral spirits.  I love the little scene inside the "P"!   The scalloped circle behind the image and the blue mat are from the Christmas Card Paper Collection, so pretty, I love that blue paper!  The card base is Soft Suede that matches the designer papers really well.

Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designer this week!  Also, you can see some sneak peaks of the new release coming out on Black Friday next week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday Challenge # 107 - Anything Goes.
