What I have been up to...

I am very tired, so this post will be mainly pictures...  :) These are some of the layout I have been working on for classes and kits...  The Paper Piecing ones were created using patterns from www.myscrapchick.com.  Thanks for looking!

I have been busy with the challenges at My Paper Tree House.  You can check the newsletter of the week here.

Love in Christ,

He will give us rest!

Have you ever had a terrible week right after you thought to yourself, "My life cannot get any better..." LOL  I need to learn and continually remind myself that the Lord only fills me in order to pour me out again.  When He Chooses to pour me out, I find great comfort in knowing that He (Himself) will give me rest! :)  May you find rest in Him this week...

I created this layout using one of Shawn's wonderful sketches:

Swing Your Heart Out

I am absolutely in love with language.  I love the fact that through it I acquire knowledge, I am able to communicate with those I love, I am able to discover what I fear and don't enjoy.  I have had the privilege this year to work with an outstanding group of students that also are falling in love with language. :)  They think it is so much fun to insert an "and" instead of a "but" and see how the entire sentence acquires a new meaning.  I think it is the same in our daily lives with many things...  It takes but a second to change the definition of many "well-known" concepts, yet there is one that has always remained the same since I came to know the Lord: NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BUT HIM!

With this in mind I created this layout for my children.  I want them to know that everything they do must be done wholeheartedly.. even swinging from a swing at the park. :)  In the journaling I have included the following:
"Oh, that you may know Him and the power of His resurrection-that you may press on toward the upward call of God in Jesus Christ.  (Philippians 3:10, 13-14)"

My desire is that the Lord would be everything to my children and that they would discover that if they swing their hearts out for anything other than Christ, then it will be purposeless.  May you too find yourself "swinging" through life with a clear understanding that it is through God that we are able to reach peace.

Love in Christ,
