This week’s verse is such an encouraging verse for me.  I am so glad that the Lord finishes what He starts.  I have started so many projects only to lose interest or find myself too busy to finish them, but that is not the case with our Lord.  There are times when I feel He has forgot about me, but I only need to pick up my Bible and be encouraged that that is not the case at all.  Just because we can not see His hand at work in our life and He does not seem to be working on our timetable does not mean that He is not working on our behalf.  Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!

I am compiling scriptures for Word Art Wednesday for 2015.  If you have any scriptures you would like to see, please send me an email or leave a comment.

Thank you all for stopping by today.

Word Art Wednesday Luke 2:10

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to another Word Art Wednesday.  I have another “Christmas” scripture for you this week.  The best (and most important) thing about Christmas is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.  We are not limited to celebrating the birth of Christ one day of the year, but we can celebrate it every day.  This scripture isn’t just a Christmas scripture, but one that speaks hope and encouragement every day of the year.

You can’t really speak about the birth of Christ without also mentioning His death because that is why He was born.  He was born to die for us, to take on our sins and give us eternal life with Him.   Because of His death we can have a personal relationship with Him.  That is why His birth brings so much joy.  The most wonderful thing is that this promise isn’t just meant for a limited amount of people or for a special type of person, but it is to ALL people.  Isn’t that wonderful!

Word Art Wednesday Matthew 1:21

 

Hello!  It’s Word Art Wednesday on Thursday.

I have a Christmas scripture for you this week, so if you are still working on Christmas cards (or haven’t started yet), hopefully you will find this useful.  The Word Art Wednesday design team did an amazing job with this verse as they always do.  I love seeing what they create each week.  There is so much inspiration on the Word Art Wednesday blog!

I am sorry for once again being late.  My Etsy shop has kept me very busy lately for which I am very thankful.  Since my husband lost his job August 1st my Etsy shop has become a priority and every single sale is a huge blessing to our family.  I am so thankful God led me to open my Etsy shop last year.  He knew what the future held and where I needed to be at this time in my life.  He is so awesome!  I love looking back and seeing God’s hand in things.  Sometimes we make decisions that we think are so trivial, but when we look back we can see that it was a God thing.  Seeing God’s hand in “the little things” mean so much when you are going through those tough times. I have learned being thankful makes a big difference in the way we see things.

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.”

Praying you all are having a very blessed holiday season.

Word Art Wednesday James 1:17

Hello there!  Welcome to Word Art Wednesday

On this week of the Thanksgiving holiday, we find our mailboxes and email boxes full of Black Friday advertisements and gift giving guides for Christmas gift giving.  You may be putting together your Christmas list and trying to figure out the perfect gift for each one on your list…it’s so frustrating, isn’t it, when you don’t know what to get someone you feel obligated to buy a gift for.  I am so thankful for Jesus Christ, the perfect gift.

Aren’t you thankful for the good and perfect gift of Jesus Christ?  Every blessing flows from Him!  He never changes and He always keeps his promises.   I am so thankful for the many blessings in my life and I am thankful that I know the source from which they come.  Have you ever been given a gift you loved and didn’t know where it came from?  Didn’t it drive you crazy that you didn’t know who to thank?  Did it consume your every thought trying to figure out who gave it to you, who knew you so well to give you something you really loved or needed?  There is no doubt who my blessings come from, who knows me so well to know what I need even better than I do.  I am so thankful for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and cannot thank Him enough for everything He has done for me.  This Thanksgiving is bittersweet for me.  I am missing our son who left home, but so excited to have our granddaughter visiting with us for a few weeks.  She is such a delight and we love every minute we have with her.  She is a gift from God and such a blessing.

I pray each of you have a blessed Thanksgiving surrounded by love and laughter and loved ones, creating beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
