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!

It's a Shower - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a card for you using the Sweet Lullaby Collection.

I thought this would be pretty for a bridal shower or even for a baby shower.  I love lots of white with a touch of yellow!  I used all white card stock for this and color the flower and leaves with chalk inks.  Very simple card to put together!

Here's a little close up of the pretty umbrella!

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful projects this week!
