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!

Santa Hat Chucky & Acorn Chucky - North Coast Creations

Hi there!

I have two more stamp images from North Coast Creations to show you.  The first is Santa Hat Chucky...

I think this one is SO cut!  The picture isn't the greatest, the greens are much brighter in real life.  The little trees I added were fussy cut from the designer paper and I added some glitter to them.  The sketch is from the Split Coast Stampers' SC396 today.

The second is Acorn Chucky...

Don't you love those teeth?  Too cute!  I made the little sign using 2 of the Large Labels smallest die and glueing them together with a toothpick inbetween.

If you are interested in these stamps, you can contact Kelley at Our Daily Bread Designs for them.

I'm also submitting these to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #39
