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."

If You'll Just Smile!

I have seen so many people (myself included) wrapped up in stress, being busy, irritated or SOMETHING that is keeping them from smiling. I encourage you to stop what you are doing today, think about all the things God has blessed YOU with and just SMILE!

Fresh Brewed Designs is sponsoring Inspirational Cared Sketches this week with a super fun sketch! I used it to create this bold and happy card. The stamp featured on this card: Cutie Pie in Clouds rubber stamp is the one that you can win by participating at ICS this week. I used American Craft paper for this card and lots of doodle lines. I added doodle lines to the cloud to mimic the patterned paper and I doodled on the pink bg paper to mimic the pattern of the clouds. This was a fun and simple card to create
