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!

Heartfelt Creations Inspiration

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for some inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!  This week I made a very simple card using the Vintage Floret Collection.  I keep thinking that it's missing something whis is probably because I didn't use any ribbon or a bow, but I didn't want to cover up the pretty designs on this.

The main panel for this card is done with the Vintage Floret Designer Paper.  I added flowers to match the paper and create a flower cascade.  I finished it by adhering it to an embossed card base and adding a sentiment.  I hope this give you a little inspiration this week!

Please visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the gorgeous creations by the design team this week!

I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #57.

Thank you for stopping by!
