I'm sitting here at my dining table, looking out the front door at the glorious sunshine and out the back doors at the beauty of nature, gifts from God. If you will just take a minute and look out a window or bundle up and go outside and thank God for the beautiful gift He has given us today. I know some of you are probably digging out of knee deep snow and thinking to yourself how much you dislike me right now because I have sunshine and you don't. Well, I would trade places with you in a heartbeat!!! I love snow! Now, I don't know if I had to live in it and have snow on the ground for 5-6 months or more a year. I might not like it so much then. So, if you aren't seeing the sun today, you can still thank God for the glorious gift He has given you. Because of your climate with all the snow you get, you can grow certain fruits and veggies that will not grow down here in the deep south! You know God has a reason for everything, so maybe His reason for giving you all the snow is so we can have some of those scrumptious raspberries that only grow in cooler climates. Anyway, I wish we could get a little snow down here in southeast Texas. And I will be praying for relief for all of you stuck in the snow, or floods, or whatever. I pray that you soon see the beauty in the world that I am seeing now.
Ok, now as for what I am up to today. Well, I am working on some cards. I need to get several more samples done and ready before my workshop at the end of the month. I want to have a good variety of things to show the guests so I have a lot of work to do before then.
Then, I also have a couple of albums I need to be working on, so they will get some attention now and in the days to come. I am finally starting to feel like scrapping again so I am going to keep myself busy with it!
I am so thankful that God has given me the ability to create scrapbooks and cards that others may enjoy looking at or receiving. I also am very thankful that it appears He has lead me to this business, doing something I truly enjoy, working with paper, and I trust in my Lord to help me to be successful in this. He wouldn't send me to it so that I would fail.
So, I am going to work on some of the things I mentioned and when I get them finished, I will take some pictures and post them so that anyone who is interested can tell me what they think!
Remember, if you are a papercrafter, or would like to be, I'm available as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator to demonstrate items from our catalog, or to teach you different techniques. I would love to show you how easy it is to preserve your memories for future generations, or to make a card for that someone special.
I hope you all have a wonderful, blessed day!!
Judy/AKA, Ms. J
