Hi sweets!!

Hi there!! I have a zillion things to do, but I feel like blogging today, so I tought before my day runs away from me, I will do it! Smiles from me to you! I feel actually totally overwhelmed with my BIG to do list. In minimizing my stress, I decided to give it a go and see how much stuff I can get done. One of the things I am busy with is cutting 12 DVD's for all the schools who attended WIC and I found this cool website where I designed the labels that goes on the CD's. Here is the CD cover that I designed with PhotoShop elements. I just wanted something that says FUN FUN FUN. Because that's what WIC was. I am also busy with designing Wedding Invitations for a friend. That's on the list for this afternoon.

My kids are home for the holidays and I am rejoicing because I totally wish them the rest but also it takes me from hero to zero. Zero driving around and hectic schedules. WHAT a blessing. I am so conscious lately of God's grace in my life. He is such an excellent parent to me. Sometimes we look at stuff that we don't have and feel resentful where we should look at it from the perspective that God loves us too much just to give us anything we ask. But on the other hand God has been telling me to be more adventurous in my asking. John 16: 24 Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete. I realize that sometimes to grasp hold of something is a battle and we go in to battle not with swords, but with our WORDS meaning our MOUTH! I love the word that says Heb 4: 12For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. I am really grasping this and it's free-ing me up BIG time! We often sit on the side line and complain that God has forsaken us. NO! He is merely waiting for us to start fighting for what is ours by praising Him and asking Him. Continiously. All the time. I once told God that He is going to get tired of me asking. : )

I will be sending out those postcards soon. I love doing stuff like that. Just give me a breathing space to sit down with tea and write you some smooches.

Thanks to those of you who read my blog so faithfully. I LOVE YOU!!!

It's such a good feeling to mark things off your "to do" list. Hope you get to everything that you need to. I love your sharing and wonder if you just open your Bible on the right page to get the verse you need or do you have some other way of getting the right message at the right time?

Hi, Wilna! Lovely word for today (and everyday!). Love your blog and was just wondering what version of the Bible you use? Is that the Message? Thanks for the blessing of your art and words.
