Jeremiah 17:7 WORDart

I don’t have a card this week, but I do have some new WORDart for you.  

Jeremiah 17_7

I am so thankful for the hope I have in the Lord!  Have you ever had a time in your life when just nothing seemed to be going right?  Well, I will be a little transparent here and tell you that is the way things have been going for me lately.  It just seems like it is one thing after another…one problem is solved only to move on to the next one.  Computer issues…car troubles…health issues…can I catch a break, please!  But then I stop and realize just how blessed I am.   My hope does not come from earthly things, but my hope is in the Lord who gives me strength for everything, however big or small.  I think maybe God is trying to teach me that I need to just trust in Him and not stress so much.  I am so thankful for the word of God that speaks to my heart and encourages me and for the hope I have in the Lord.

You can download this WORDart here.

I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to leave me a comment or send me an email recently.  I can not tell you how much that has meant to me!  It means more than I can say and was the perfect encouragement at the perfect time.  God is so good!

I also want to thank everyone who has supported and/or purchased from my side hobby, The Angel Company.  The Angel Company has decided to close effective immediately.  It makes me sad and I will very much miss being a part of  The Angel Company.

My husband will be having surgery next week, so if things are quiet here it is because I am taking care of my family.   If I can squeeze in some computer time between caring for him and homeschooling the kiddos, I will have some new WORDart  for you.  If I can squeeze in some crafty time, I might even have a card!  I would really appreciate your prayers for a speedy recovery for my husband and strength for our family.

May God richly bless your day!

Best wished to your hubby for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Hopefully everything will settle down soon. Great word concerning this verse, words I need to remind myself of too. Hope you have a great weekend.
