Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
That is the scripture that my Stampin ' Sister in Christ Candace picked for us to think about this week.
I have an interesting insight into this verse this week. With my oldest spending her first week away from home. I know I had a harder time than she did with the separation. She was ok with a quick text saying "Hi" when I wanted a long conversation to see how she was doing, to encourage her, to be MOM to her. At one point I caught myself wondering if she had read the texts I had sent her. I was thinking, that it would take so little time in her day to just give me a call or text me back. Then I got to thinking about my heavenly Father. What if He had sent me a text and I didn't even bother reading it because I was too busy? What if He had sent me a text with really important information that would protect me? What if He had sent me a text to encourage me? What if He had sent me a text that said, "I LOVE YOU." The method isn't quite the same, but He did send me all of that in the form of the BIBLE, His word.
Dear God, I am sorry for the times that I haven't read your word because I was just to busy and wrapped up in doing my own thing. Help me to be a better daughter by reading your word and spending more time with you. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Candace's challenge was to make a card with no images, with the sentiment as the main focus.
Don't you love this sentiment? I do.
I am so excited to announce that I will be one of the designers
with the talented designers for MY DAY DREAM DESIGNS.
This sentiment is from the GARDEN INSPIRATION SENTIMENTS.
To place emphasis on the "colors" part of the sentiment, I choose to keep everything black and white and just add the colored flowers.
These roses, I'm naming FREE REGISTRATION ROSES. I'm naming them that because, this last week when I went to register my boys for school they handed me so many papers.After getting the information from the papers, I was about to throw them away, but there were several sheets that were printed on pretty purple paper. I took my scallop punch and punched out the blank areas on the purple paper before tossing them in the trash. It was enough to make these quilled roses. I told my husband about my free roses and he reminded me of all the taxes I pay and how they were probably very expensive roses. I still like to think of them as free.
This last week was very stressful and my creativity was stressed as well. With this card, I let all expectations go and just had fun. I found my SPARKLE. "Getting your sparkle on" as away to express creative inspiration was the idea of my Stampin' Sister in Christ, Helen. Isn't that a great word?
I hope you all have a blessed, and wonderful week.

Picking a song to share with you was an easy one. Take spending time with God and Gardens you get this timeless song. My first memory of this song is when I was probably about 4 or 5. I remember my mom and dad and aunt and uncle singing it as an accapella quartet.
