Oh Happy Day!!!


Oh Happy Day! I have really enjoyed creating these little bits of art and finding that there is always a verse in my Bible to pertain to real life. Only because HE is real in my life!!!!

Ephesians 4:32
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other. Just as God in Christ also has forgiven you!

Continue to pray for all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. I thank God we only had wind and rain. May everyone remain safe and recover from this hurricane.





Be blessed!!!

Bible Journaling in my Tiny Notebook

Good Sunday evening to you....I have really enjoyed journaling in this #2 Wide Foxy Fix notebook. I thought this was a Licorice..but now I'm not sure. The leather is so soft and flexible. I am really loving it for my MINI Bible Journaling, Junk Journaling, and writing in my little Prayer Notebooks. 

Creating with my hands is what I do! I find it such a wonderful stress reliever. 

I have always loved this verse in 
1st Thessalonians 4:11
"Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you." 

I have all these paint chips laying around, at one time we were trying to decide on colors for my craft room and for the church. I wanted to put them to good use. So I've really enjoyed creating these little bits of art. 
The only downside to this, I don't like my handwriting!!!! Yikes!!! LOL Something I will have to practice on for sure!!! 



This past weekend, our Texas coast was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, I continue to pray for God to put His mighty hands on all of those in need! 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed week!

I am Mother, Mom and Mama Bear....

Good morning!!! Feels so wonderful to be off today! I definitely needed this day! I slept in which felt awesome! I hope your day is going just as well!

Do your kids have nicknames for you?? My eldest, calls me "Mother", my middle child calls me "Mom or Maaaa" and my youngest, has always called me "Mama Bear". But no matter what they call me, my purpose in their life is the same: to love, protect, nuture, guide, and pray for daily. Motherhood is a  gift from God I have always been grateful for. My kids have always been my life. They are all grown up and  on their own now, but I will forever be their Mother, Mom and Mama Bear!!!

I was praying for them the other night, and found this verse in 
Genesis 28:15:

"Behold I am with YOU and I will keep you wherever you go and I will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised YOU!"

I know this is God speaking to us. He never leaves us and one day we will return to Him. But it's not until our journey here on Earth is through. Until He calls us home to be with him.
I don't know how long I will be in this world, but I do know, that until I'm gone..I will love my God and I will be a Mom to my 3 wonderful kids ( young adults). They don't like when I call them kids! LOL!
