Peace that passess all understanding

I hate slow internet connections. I have been waiting to post these pictures of the cards I just created and my wireless connection is lagging! It's funny because I'm all irritated about it and I glance at the verse I wanted to post for today. John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." Although I may be annoyed with my computer, I thank God for that peace that passes all understanding. Right now my life feels like a disaster. I stress about things I have no control of: work, school, FINANCES, my dogs, and my house. The Bible tells me to be anxious of nothing, all I have to do is pray and ask. With the way the world is today, I'm good, I don't have to stress and loose sleep, it could be worse. With that, the peace fills my heart and I know that I'm blessed. You too can have this peace, all you have to do is ask and receive it. God loves you!

Another Mundane Monday

Yesterday was Father's Day and I forgot I had made this card a few months ago. The verse is Matt. 4:18; "He said, Follow me and I will make you fishers of men." At church yesterday there was a skit with a little girl in a princess dress trying to attract the attention of her father. The father was busy on the computer and cell phone. I don't know what the song is but it brought tears to my eyes something about dancing with the princess and needing to practice her dance. Finally the father took notice and danced with the little girl. The skit took the audience through other times of her life: her prom and marriage, both with the fathers dancing with their little (or not so little, anymore) girls. It was really sweet.

My father passed away this March but I never really had that "daddy's girl" type of relationship. When I saw that skit it solidified my prayers that my kids will have that type of father I never had. My BF, my wonderful Richie, also shares my thoughts. We both want our kids to have a solid foundation with God in the center and a loving home. But before the kids, we gotta work on ourselves. I just hope I'm not too old to enjoy it! I'm kinda afraid I'll be in a wheelchair before my babies are teenagers! LOL....Ah, it's all God's timing and it's perfect timing!

Back to the card, I had wanted to submit the card to be on Christian Paper Crafts Magazine but I missed the deadline. There's always next time!

A Muse Challenge: It's a guy thing and square

This card should fit the bill for both card challenges: It's a Guy Thing and the A*Muse*A*Palooza Square Challenge. I used a copic marker to color and match the ribbon. Enjoy!

Father's Day cards

It's been a while since my last post, gosh it sounds as if I'm in confession. Blogmaster, forgive me for I have sinned against my blog....
It's been a long couple of weeks, busy with stuff and more stuff.
A few weeks back I had in my heart to start a card making/scrapbook ministry at my church. Well, on June 6th, we had our launch party. Creative Grace was started and we made Father's day cards. Along with my co-leader, Becca and I got together our goods to host it at Jenny's house. We had a great time, as seen in the photo: Levy, Janet, Allison, and Becca. The girls are showing off their origami shirts for the Father's day cards.
It was so much fun I can't wait till the next one!
