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!

Psalm 27:1 ~ Guest Designer Our Daily Bread Designs

Hi Everyone!

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD47)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is all about using your favorite scripture on a card. I realize favorites change from time to time so the scripture could be your favorite one right now. Tell us why it is your favorite. Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

I'm so honored and excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer for this Challenge! Here is my card for the challenge.

I don't really have just one favorite scripture, I have many! I picked Psalm 27:1, a beautiful verse. It's wonderful to know God is there for me showing me the way to go and I have nothing to fear. It gives me great comfort, in the good times and the difficult times, to know He's ALWAYS there with me.

I made this card very simple, but I really love how it came out. I love the white and the soft green and the little bird on the paper. This is from the Mariposa matstack by DCWV. It has some beautiful papers in it. The verse is from ODBD's Light of the World stamp set and is stamped in black ink from VersaFine. The green cardstock is guacamole from Bazzills. For accessories, I used adhesive pearls, pearl brad, ribbon, ribbon flowers, organic flourish from Cuttlebug, frond punch from Martha Stewart, standard circles small & large petite scallops dies from Spellbinders.

Looking forward to seeing your creations with your favorite verses!
