I've been busy making cards today. I cut some branches out at Jan's house Sunday and wanted to make cards with them. When I saw the branch at Jan's house, I immediately thought of the gorgeous pink cherry blossoms that fill Washington, DC in Spring. So I used a small flower punch, and a woodgrain embossing folder and began to form the card. The background is bashful blue cardstock with marina mist clouds. Dazzling Details was used to add glitter to the flower centers. I wasn't sure if I should have used a tiny googly eye on the bird or not. I'm also not sure what type of card I want to make this. I made this for the Queen For The Day this week whose name is Kim.
Today my dear friend, Emily was at a conference for work and I worked with a substitute teacher name Kathy. Kathy is a very experienced sub and we clicked easily and got lots done today. I love being in the classroom helping first graders.
I've been trying to give each day to God so he can accomplish his will through me. It's not so easy though. I often fail, and end up doing my own thing. God, please help me to put you first not me. You know what's best and I only THINK I know what's best. Obviously your plan is far better than mine.
When I heard this song, I knew I wanted to share it. This is what we strive for, to let others see God through us. Wow, that's a tall order isn't it? I know I fail time and time again. Last night is a good example of where I failed. I made a mistake with an order for a customer, I apologized 5 or 6 times, but this woman wanted to continue to yell at me and refused to pay for her order. It was over a hundred dollar order and the more we talked the louder she got. So I began to get louder. So loud in fact Tim came down to see what was going on. I knew I needed to stay calm and not get upset, but I was pulled into it and felt awful after. I asked for forgiveness and the ability to let it go and not go over it in my mind again and again. I need to be reminded over and over that I am a reflection of Christ, or at least I should be. Enjoy this song and make this your prayer today.
Why don't sharks eat clowns? They taste funny!
That prompted Sarah to tell this silly joke.
Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9. (ate nine! LOL)
Okay, these jokes are only funny if you're in second grade or very tired. We were very tired.
Thanks for stopping by.
