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!

Thankful Harvest

Hi again!

I'm back with another card, this time for Thanksgiving. I made this card last year, but just couldn't figure out how I wanted to finish it. So it's been sitting in the reject pile for quite a while. It's funny to see my coloring from over a year ago compared to now. I guess I have learned a lot since then. I know I could do better now, but it was too much work to just toss it out...sometimes it's painful to be a "perfectionist"!!!

I used Season of Thanks and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamps from Stampin Up. Papers are chocolate chip, more mustard, old olive, and very vanilla also from SU. Inks used are black (Pallete), wheat (Versamagic), and old olive (SU). If you need additional details, I will be posting them in my SCS Gallery. Thanks for looking!
