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!

Poinsettia Christmas Dinner Place Card

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a quick little project to make for your Christmas dinner this year, a place card for your guests.

To make the place card I used Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 largest die to cut Natural White cardstock. Then I scored it down the center.

Fold in half on crease to create place card.

Then just decorate with flowers and write your guest names on each card. Here's a close up of the pretty poinsettia flower.

Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:
