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!

Matchbook Post-It Note Holder - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

It's inspiration Wednesday for Heartfelt Creations!  Today I have a cute little post-it note holder I made using the Arianna Blooms Paper Collection and 3 of the Heartfelt Creations Dies.

Here's a side view so you can see the Post-It and how it's put together.

This was really easy to put together and I think it makes for a cute gift!  I used the “Matchbook Post-It Note Holder” Tutorial on Split Coast Stampers found here.  You can find the instructions for how I decorated mine at the end of my post, if you will like to try making one yourself!

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful projects by the designers this week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
