Kitten, Cards, Fireflies, and Trusting God

Here's our silly Chloe all curled up in the Stampin' Up, pop up garbage can on my desk.  She had enough room to go in and turn around. We never know what she is going to do. LOL

 Today the challenge was to make a beach scene.  I sponged the beach and added grass. Then I added the water. I applied transfer gel to the water stamp with a sponge, then stamped. The foil sticks to where the glue is. I sanded the foil a bit to soften it.
I sponged the sky then added the sun's color. Lastly I added the birds. I know the beach isn't in my immediate future, but I can dream!

This is a stamp from Jane's stash. I stamped it Saturday then colored it and made it into a card over the weekend.

This is Stampin' Up's birthday die. I cut it on double sided taped paper, then added dazzling diamonds.

This is another card I made from Jane's stamp. I'm trying to use as much designer series paper as I can. It sure does add interest to the card.


Tim and I sat out on the porch just enjoying the cooler evening when we began to see lights in the woods behind our house.  This is similar but not what we saw. We saw lots of lights going on and off in the woods. It was like an incredible light show just for us.  It was just amazing! We'd never seen that many fireflies in one place. Thank you God for the beautiful light show.

Verse of the Day:
Zephaniah 3:17, “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (NIV)

Have your ever thought of God taking 'Great Delight' in you? The God of the universe would even care about me is mind-boggling. This is what I come back to when my mind hears Satan's lies. God loves me and I am his no matter what!

If I Trust In You is a new song and artist for me. I've included the lyrics below the video. Give it a listen and think about those words.  God is the only one to trust, over and over and over again.


If I Trust In You” Lyrics
Can I trust you with all my tears,
with all of my hope and all of fears,
Can I trust you with all of this pain,
the beat of my heart the blood in my veins,

And oh….
I’m barely hanging on

Will your arms reach out to rescue me
And pull me from the violent sea
If I trust in you? If I trust in you?
Will the hands that shaped eternity
Restore the light inside of me
If I trust in you? If I trust in You?

Can I give you the rest of my life
The best that I am
The sacrifice
Can I give you the last of my doubts
Will my faith hold up or will it drop out

Cause oh,
I’m barely hanging on

Afraid that I will fall apart
I’m under fire over and over again
But you pursue with all your heart
I’ll learn to trust you over and over again

Blessing of the Day: Tim helped me transplant flowers and plants on the back porch. We hung the macrame plant holders too.

We had our conference call with the lawyer. Not sure what will happen there. Praying God will bring our family together some day.

Thanks for stopping by.
Blessings,
