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 - Blue Bunny

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It's time for a little inspiration with Heartfelt Creations!  Today I have a card using this little bunny from the Butterfly & Bunny Set.

(Click on photo for a closer view)

This little guy is so sweet!  This is colored with pencils and then fussy cut and popped onto one of the journal blocks from the designer paper.  I added a couple of extra flowers behind him and a bow made from fibers I have in my weaving stash.  (Complete instructions are at the end of this post.)

There is lots of inspiration on the HC Blog this week for you to check out so make sure to stop by!  Also, they are announcing the winner of the new release from last week!
