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."

I'm Dreaming of a Sandy Christmas?

Here at the beach it has been near 70, even though it is nasty and cloudy and drizzly rainy (ugh!)
I guess we can't have it all. We might not be as lucky with the weather as our Beach Bums gal 
who is celebrating in style ;), but we are pretty close!

This card was created using the Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamps: Beach Bums and Palm Tree
I masked our lovely lady off, stamped the tree behind her and hand drew the rest of the sand / ocean scene.

I had a lot of fun making this card. I imagine those of you who are lucky enough to go on cruises or live in the beautiful state of Hawaii or other comparable places will be enjoying a Christmas such as this :D ! Others will be making real snowmen... and we will be sitting here in mud :D LOL!!! But it is not about the weather. It is about spending time with our family and friends. Laughing, sharing, making wonderful memories together. Sharing the love of Jesus Christ on his birthday. 

I hope no matter where you live, what weather you are having, your Christmas is a blessed and happy one.
