Joyful new year!
"Happy New Year!" We all want to be happy don't we? Problem is that we tie our Happiness to our circumstances. If I had just a little more money I would be happy. If I had a better job, I would be happy. If I felt better, I would be happy.... the list could go on. If we do achieve happiness it doesn't last for long. Think of that perfect Christmas gift that you got your kids and now just a couple of days after Christmas, they aren't happy with it. What I am striving for this coming new year is JOY. Joy and happiness are the same thing aren't they? I don't think so. Love JOY, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self control. these are the fruit of the Spirit. Joy comes from having the Holy Spirit working in your life. I heard it explained a long time ago that JOY stood for J-esus, O-thers, Y-ourself. and that if you put Jesus first in your life, then others then yourself, that you will have joy.
The paper on my card is a digital paper from myDaydream Designs called HAPPY NEW YEAR PAPER PACK. The little clock and baby new year is from myDaydream Designs called HAPPY NEW YEAR COLORED DIGI SET.
I used the Sweet Stop Sketch SSS190 for the layout. I used my sewing machine to sew the card together. I added a little green rhinestone to go at the 12 for midnight. The rest of the numbers have a little diamond rhinestone .
I wish you JOY for the new year to come!!!!
