And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28

truth

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Word Art Wednesday: James 5:8

Good Morning!
What a beautiful day it is here in South Carolina.
The sun is shining, it is unseasonably cool outside, and my 
thoughts are on Him and His glory.



Here is the card I created using this week's Word Art


I think about God all the time. I walk around the house
singing praises to and about God and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I also find I get too busy to get into his word and that I fall short in my walk
because of it. It is one thing to know about Him and think about Him, and
another to further build a relationship with Him. 

This post is so special to me. 
I know that the end times are upon us. 
I can not only FEEL it welling up inside of me, 
but Biblical prophesy are being fulfilled daily. 
THE LORD IS COMING SOON!
Prepare the way.

It is such a wonderful time, but still such a very serious time. 
There are so many who will be left behind and face tribulation.
We are the ones who are to witness, teach, help, share God's love and share how 
they can be saved to avoid these things.

I was speaking to a friend of mine on facebook the other day.
We were actually commenting on a song I had shared and this is what I said to her
and I feel it to be my biggest desire:

*the song is linked in the text above*


To be saved is not  something we do or want just to avoid Hell and to leave during the rapture to 
avoid the tribulation. It is about LOVE and having a true relationship with our Heavenly Father.
All He asks of you is that you BELIEVE in Jesus. Believe that He died on the cross for your sins and that only His precious blood can cover your sins. REPENT of your sins. Confess and ask for God to forgive you.  Ask Him into your heart and to take over your WHOLE life. The old man is left behind and you will be born again! 
Turn away from old things and take up your cross and follow him. 
Such a simple thing to do, but the most important thing you will EVER do.

My Beautiful Daughter: Dance recital solo: Note To God









Hannah left her old dance studio where she was being mistreated and joined her current one at the end of the dance year for 2014. She was taught this dance in 7 or less 30 minute private lessons. She was beautiful. Such a fitting song for what she was going through. Still thanking God for our move and can't wait to see all of the things He has planned for her!

Freshly Brewed Challenges: Glitter Galore

To see my Word Art Wednesday post go HERE

Good Morning!
I am back with another card!
Can you imagine, two posts on one day! WOW!
I am amazed myself ;) tee hee hee!

What an eventful week it has been.
Dance and school start back this week. 
Life gets busy, but I found that if you keep your focus on
God and all the good things he has for you, it all seems to work out. 
We are to serve Christ first and in all we do.
Daily chores, tasks, running around - spilling coffee on a newly mopped floor,
getting too hot or too cold ... well, things just set me off and I have a little
'Heather fit' so to speak. I have been trying to remind myself 
or check myself ;) before I start.  I have failed a time or two, but
God puts me back on the path pretty quickly. 


I have a fun card to share with you.
Our new challenge at Freshly Brewed Challenges is 
GLITTER GALORE and boy did I use a ton of it!




I colored my image with a mix of copic markers and
prisma color markers. I used pretty paper from the
Making Memories 6x6 stack: Just Chillin.
The cardstock (white and kraft) are by Papertrey Inc



To add all of this yummy shimmer, I used the following items:
Stickles: waterfall, fruit punch, eucalyptus
Creative Inspirations Paint: Fairy Dust
Martha Stewart Loose Glitter: Mica




I traced around the image using the inside of my oval diecut,
then I trimmed around it leaving her hair, hand, tail and other little areas
extended out over the oval outline.
I then used the same diecut and cut out the kraft scalloped oval to create a frame.
The paper was so pretty, I didn't want to hid or cover it up.
I chose to cut out a wave diecut using my MFT waves die.
I used the paper as a stencil, inked over it, sprinkled Seafoam White
embossing powder over the wet ink and heat embossed the waves.

God is so good! (Word Art Wednesday Guest Designer)

I am blessed to be back again today with another
Word Art Wednesday card.
This week has been so busy. We are preparing for school to start.  
We are also preparing for all of the new dance classes the kids will be involved in. 
They will be taking up pretty much every weeknight. 
I am looking forward to the new start though. 

I have been trying not to let every day things stress me out. 
I have failed every day, but also done better than before.
I was reading an blog post at for the family entitled:

That opened my eyes and heart to a whole different perspective.
God is so good to me. So good that even the little, every day tasks that I do... even the ones
that I feel are so annoying and unending, are done and should be done for Him, 
giving Him glory. If you want to read that post click >HERE<



I am going to get back to the reason for this post and share my
Word Art Wednesday card with you.
This weeks scripture:






Isn't that a beautiful scripture. 
CHRIST IN YOU, THE  HOPE OF GLORY!
How amazing is it to know and have Jesus living in your heart?
To know how much he loves you and that he died for your sin. 
To know that His love costs nothing. It is free. Salvation is free.
All we have to do is accept it. He paid the price for MY sin.
He died a death that only I deserved. 
And He would do it again! Just for one person. Just for you!
If it meant that he would have to endure the cross all over again, just to save you, 
he would! He loves us with such a deep love. We are His children. 
We are so important to Him. God, the father, loves us so much he knows every hair 
on our head. He knows every worry and fear. He knows every pain and tear we shed.
He wants to comfort us. To hold us. To give us peace and joy that surpasses all understanding.
We just have to ask for it. So simple. Our lives can change in an instant by asking Jesus into our
heart, to forgive us of our sin, to turn away from wicked ways and follow Him completely.
