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!

Slight Hinderance

Well, my favorite thing to do is coloring with my pencils. Unfortunately, I'm having lots of trouble right now with my right thumb. I fell a couple of weeks ago in the kitchen...I hurt my thumb and now it's hurting even more. I had an x-ray today and go to doctor Monday to see what the problem is. For now, it's painful to color :-( and pretty much anything else I need to do!

Oh, well! I guess I'll need to find other ways to be creative!




  1. I am a new follower....have just a wonderful time looking at your lovely work.
    Hope your thumb heals quickly and completely.

  2. Oh No, Kathy, So sorry to hear that this happened to you. Will add you to my prayers. I would miss your beautiful work too much. Please keep us updated as to how you are doing.


Thank you for blessing me with your sweet comments!
