And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Fresh Brewed Blog Hop: Rubber Stamp Release

What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice
And everything nice, That's what little girls are made of.

I think even as we grow, we ladies are still made of sugar and spice and everything nice, don’t you? Today we have lots of girly fun to share with you! Fresh Brewed Designs has released (today) 7 brand new rubber stamps that are perfect for girls of all ages! I have designed 3 coffee gals to add to the already sassy series. These latte lovin’ ladies have an extra sprinkle of sweetness. Each stamp has a little cherry topped cupcake added to it. We are also excited to introduce to you today Cutie Pie!!! She is a cute little butterfly fairy with a love for adventure and loves to spread smiles wherever she goes.

If you are just getting to the hop, you will have to start at the beginning at the Freshly Brewed Challenges Blog. If you are getting here from the ever so amazing and talented Carolyn’s Blog you are on the right track
