the best trip...

is creating a scrapbook page that makes the smile go right around your head. I have been on a trip for a week now. Today in the mail, I got the ScrapFan May kit and I am dedicating some time to it today. It's beautiful and I can't wait to show you all. How do you like my banner? I am in LOVE with the little ink roller I bought last week. I find myself using it on every page. But that's me. I will do the same thing over and over again until I am sick of it. And while I work, I am watching Jane Austen Movies. Yesterday I watched Emma and today I will be watching Sense and Sensibility. Gotta love those movies.

I want to encourage those of you who is going through a tough time. I know for sure that God loves it and is pleased through us exercising our FAITH. I want to encourage you to have faith. Believe God will come through for you. Jaco and I are facing something and God just encouraged me to have faith! I really felt that we have to rejoice becuase every little thing is gonna be all right. And then I read Psalm 40 in the message translation and it said: 16-17 But all who are hunting for you— oh, let them sing and be happy. Let those who know what you're all about tell the world you're great and not quitting. And me? I'm a mess. I'm nothing and have nothing: make something of me. You can do it; you've got what it takes— but God, don't put it off. God is not quitting on you. Heb 13: 5 says I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] Have faith. God loves you. He will come through for you. Just hang on to Him for dear life.

I love you.

I am going through something too, thanks for the Words of encouragement. Eventhough we know these things, it is always good to be reminded. God has also been encouraging me to have Faith. That is the place I walk the best, the most confident. Have a blessed day!!! Cherri Engle

My heart melted when I read the three most powerful words in the English language at the end of your post..."I love you".

You're an inspiration to so many. I'll be praying you through whatever you and Jaco are facing.

Hi Wilna

Het lanklaas 'n comment gelos, maar ek lees nog gereeld jou blog! Weet net ek dink aan jou en bid vir julle. Ons dien 'n GETROUE GOD! Soms wens ek ek kon Sy Stem hard & duidelik hoor, net om te besef ek het net nie mooi geluister nie, MY ore was toe. Mag julle regtig die Here se Stem HOOR.
