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!

Berry Sweet Card

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration! This week I have another card using the Berry Cafe Collection!

I used the designer paper for the mat and stamped the sentiment directly on it. The flower and bee image is from the Sweet As Honey Set that I stamped twice, once for the flower and bee and again for just the bee. These were colored with pencils and mineral spirits and die cut each with a matching die. They are each "popped" on to the mat and I added some Lemon Chiffon Prills to the flower center.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week. Also, this week we say goodbye to 4 of our designers and we welcome 10 new designers to the team.

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:

Word Art Wednesday #228 - #229 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
