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."

Hap-BEE Day!!!

The Violet and the Bee
by John Bannister Tabb

"And pray, who are you?"
Said the Violet blue
To the Bee, with surprise,
At his wonderful size,
In her eyeglass of dew.
"I, madam," quoth he,
"Am a publican Bee,
Collecting the tax
Of honey and wax.
Have you nothing for me?"

I found this cute little poem on one of the home school websites I use to print practice or fun worksheets for my kids. Hope it made you smile :)
I look forward to having the bees flying in my garden as my veggies start to bloom and grow.This week at Freshly Brewed Challenges we are challenging you to use our photo as an inspiration piece for your project(s). I have created 5 cards for this challenge due to my team being out sick and/or other issues beyond their control. Needless to say, they are in need of our smiles, support, and prayers.

The card I created to share with you today is one using the image:

This card was created using the sketch at Eat Sleep Stamp

I colored her up with prismacolor markers and creative inspirations paints in Sunshine yellow and light purple. The DS papers are by Heidi Grace: A Little Bird's Tale (which is kindof wrong considering birds eat bugs ... :/ ..)

I hope you will get the chance to play along this week at FBC. Lots of smiles!!! Stop by tomorrow for another post sharing a Purple and Green creation :D.

HUGS!! and have a very blessed day!
