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!

Winter's Fireside Scene

Happy Wednesday!

I have another Christmas card to share with you this week using the new Winter's Eve Collection of stamps and dies.

This time I have used the cute fireside scene for the main image that I colored with pencils and minerals spirits.  I added the window die cut over it and added it to a white embossed mat.  The flower under the bow is from the Window Box Fillers Set that has a match die.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the design team!

I'm Submitting this to the following challenge:
