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!

Word Art Wednesday - Philemon 1:4

Happy Wednesday everyone!

This is my third week as a Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday!  This week's word art is from Philemon 1:4.

This is Paul writing to Philemon of his thankfulness for him.  This verse reminds me of those special people in my life that I am so thankful for.  My family, my Bible Study ladies, my friends here and in blogland.  I have so many sweet people in my life that encourage me, pray for me and I for them.  I am so blessed!

For my card, I used a MOJO Sketch from last year, #248.  Except for the bow and flower, it would make a nice guy card.  These Portobello Road Papers are perfect for masculine ones.

Card recipe:

Paper: Very Vanilla (SU), Portobello Road (Recollections)
Ink: Amaretto (Powder Puffs)
Accessories: Golden Maple Silk Ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Labels 20 (Spellbinders), Rose Leaf Punch (Martha Stewart), Vintage Floret Die (Heartfelt Creations), brad (Bo Bunny), Antique Copper Microbeads (Recollections), McGill Mat & Tool Kit, Bow-Easy, Scallop Border Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder (SU), piercer
