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!

Rest, Strength, and Comfort

Hi there!

I'm back again with another card I made using the layered Crosses, this time making a Double Z-Fold card.  It's my first time doing one of these, pretty easy and fun.  I used the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers' Resources which you can find here

This card is pretty CAS compared to what I normally do, but it didn't seem to need anything more added to it.

Here's the card closed up.

Here it is opened up.

The sentiment on the inside of the card, is from the newly released Sentiments Collection from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I LOVE this set!  These are all sentiments that the designers at ODBD contributed!  So cool!
