Scrapbooking Crops

I am so excited. I am going to my first crop. It isn't until September 25th, but I can hardly contain myself. I am already planning my papers and pictures. Getting embellishments that I may use ready. Not sure if I will get much done or gathering tips from others. I am still pretty new at this, but ready to learn more and more. I have a new border punch coming in the mail. It is from the website. If you are not a Fiskateer, it is a great site to join. Check it out.

What a day.

Boy what a day today. I was so hoping to do some crafting, but alas my psoriatic arthritis is in a flare. I am in such pain, but I am blessed to be able to feel pain. That means I am alive and have gotten another day to spend with my family and watching my son grow up, another day to praise God, another day to talk to friends, another day to learn more about God, just another day, and another day to share Jesus with someone. Thank you God for another day.

Great Day

Had a great day at church today. In sunday school we are doing a Beth Moore study and today's lesson was about Joy and how we let others and circumstances steal the joy that God has given to us. Here are some things Beth says we let take our joy.
1. When our output exceeds our intake. Are you serving more than you are seeking?
2. When our talk exceeds or walk.
3. When we become "wonder-junkies"
4. When we are exhausted.
5. When we feel all alone.

Are you letting your joy be stolen from you. By recognizing where our joy has went we can get it back.

Lord, may we look to you for our source of joy and rest in the promises you have for us. May we be on the look-out for the joy stealers and come to you when we see those joy stealers in our lives. Amen
