Journaling Bible: Caleb

Today is a SPECIAL day!!! 

My first born son turns 25 today! Where have the years gone!?
I remember sitting in church, and I was about 5 months pregnant. I saw the name Caleb in my bible and thought…”that’s his name, we shall name him Caleb”.  I didn’t know at the time, that we were having a boy, but I knew if we did…that was his name!
I remember his first day of kindergarten, teaching him to drive, first day of college, and his move into his new apartment. Some days I miss him so much, he's always been my "right hand man", he was always there for me. Now he's moved on and is a young adult, he makes me extremely proud. Happy Birthday Caleb! Love you to the Moon and back! 


So…in honor of my son’s name, I worked on Numbers 14:24:
"But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it."



Have a blessed day!

Happy Birthday Lil' Cowboy!

This past weekend, we celebrated my nephew's 1st Birthday. His parents, mostly his mama, did a wonderful job at decorating for the party. She even set up a  "photo prop" w/ hay bales, pumpkins, and my dad's saddle. My nephew had a wonderful time!

I wanted his 1st birthday cards to be special, so these are the 2 that I made for him.

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

Journaling Bible: Hold Fast....

Happy Monday to you! Heard this verse in church yesterday and it stuck. So I thought I'd journal it lastnight. 
This is in Revelations 3:11: Hold fast what you have, so that NO ONE may seize your Crown! 

I'm not sure who makes the pink and blue alphabet stickers, they are extras from an open package. The black ones used in seize are by Stickos. Found those at Michael's. Crown is by Hallmark I believe. 
Page flag are from Target's $1 spot. 

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I did! We celebrated my nephew's 1st Birthday with a Lil' Cowboy themed party. I'll show you pictures of the cards I made for him on tomorrow's post. 
Have a blessed day!

Journaling Bible: God is my Strength and My Song

Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! I know I am. It's a beautiful day!!!

Thought I'd share this verse with you....it brings a smile to my heart. 

Exodus 15:2--"The Lord is my Strength and my Song and He has become my Salvation."

  These are the supplies I used. I forgot to take a picture of the little bird rubberstamp I used. It's been out of the packaging so I'm not sure who makes this one. It's those that you buy for about 1.50 and they come by themselves. All of this stuff is from my scrapbooking stash. I did find this cute paper pad at Ross for $3, it's by Basic Grey.
    Everything here is from my stash too, except those adorable Pink Alphabet stickers, but daughter got me those at Hobby Lobby...by The Paper Studio. 

Have a Blessed Saturday!!!

Journaling Bible: Fishers of Men

WooHoo! It's Friday!!! I have been looking forward to this day ALL week!!! You see, I'm off! I'm using a vacation day to stay home and relax, and clean, and craft!!! I've done 2 of 3, can you guess which? Heck...there's all day to clean!!! LOL

My daughter loves to fish, and she's got this pretty fishing hook necklace she found online, as I thought of that, I remembered this verse in 
Matthew 4:19, 'Follow me and I will make you Fishers of Men'

Image is a Magnolia stamp.

I used supplies I had on hand....I didn't have red and blue stickers, so I used some white ones that I found in my old scrapbooking stash and colored them in w/ Sharpies! 

 These rub-on letters are by Making Memories...I've had these for years! I love them!

Have a blessed Friday! I'm looking forward to my longggg 3 day weekend!

Journaling Bible: He that is In You....

Good afternoon!!! Have you heard the song "Greater" by Mercy Me? It's an awesome song!
I love the words!! I heard this verse again in church this past Sunday: 

1 John 4:4 "for he who is in you is greater than he that is in the world"....


I knew I wanted to use a picture of our earth..but my drawing skills are not very good. So I found a set of school stickers in my old stash and cut it apart to make this! 

Here are my supplies that were used:




Have a great evening!!!
Be blessed!!!!
