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!

Our Daily Bread Designs - SNTODBD44 & ODBDSLC78

Hi there! I made this card using Scripture Collection #2 from Our Daily Bread Designs. This is a beautiful verse from Psalms...I love the words "dwells" and "rest". How wonderful to dwell and rest in the Lord. There's no place else I would rather be!

The papers I used for this are "Roam" from K & Co., very vanilla and certainly celery from Stampin Up. The ink is dark chocolate from Palette and gingerbread and wheat from Versafine. I will be submitting this to ODBD Challenge of distressing or inking. This is about the most distressing I can do, as I usually don't do it at all. I'll put more of the details in my Split Coast Stampers' Gallery, if you would like more! Thanks for looking! Blessings! Kathy

Ps. Thank you Chris! I've entered this in the ODBD Shining the Light challenge now too!


  1. So pretty! I really like the colors that you used!

  2. Oh how pretty, Kathy!! I just love your colors, the added texture, flowers and the verse. Beautiful and comforting! This card would be perfect for the Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light challenge (to use a song, quote, or verse) on your creation.

    Have a great day!!

  3. What a beautiful card! Love the colors and the flowers and the scripture! Such an encouraging card! Blessings!
