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!

Sun Kissed Wishes - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday!

It's that fun time of the week to show you a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!

This week I used an older HC release, the Sun Kissed Collection...always one of my favorites!

I love using this technique on stamped images of heat embossing with embossing enamel and coloring with chalk inks and make up sponges.  I love the way it looks and it's so quick and easy to color!  (You can click on the picture to get a closer view if you would like.)

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

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
