Life is sweet

I made this page today. Totally loving how it all came about. Sometimes it just don't work, but sometimes is just happens. I have been contemplating the word "friendship" lately in the context that the Word said that Abraham was God friend. God's highest for us is to be in an intimate friendship with him. But immediately we feel disqualified. The "good news" is that we are included in the invitation. Psalm 40:7 says: So I answered, "I'm coming. I read in your letter what you wrote about me, And I'm coming to the party you're throwing for me." That's when God's Word entered my life, became part of my very being.

The 2 MAYOR qualities that make up friendship is: Favor and Innocence. The good news again is that we possess both of these qualities in Him. Innocence as in forgiveness based on total acquittal, no suspicion, blame or guilt. (Gal 2: 20 and Rom.5:18)...and favor like in with a happiness produced by the experience of God's favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace.

So, if you find this bit of news to be too good to be true... well, IT IS!!! Start your friendship with God right now... by talking to Him like you would to a dear heart friend... you can tell Him all that's on your heart. This is such GOOD NEWS.

What a coincidence. I made a couple of cards yesterday that use a similar die cut shape -- one even had a butterfly :-) I'm gonna post the butterfly one tomorrow, but you can see the first one -- Clean & Simple Thanks -- on my blog.

Thanks for sharing!
