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."

You have a chance to win more SURPRISE BLOG CANDY just by hopping. 
All you have to do is hop in full and leave a comment on our CHALLENGE BLOG letting us know the most
favorite gift you have ever received and why it was so special to you. 

This is a hard but easy question for me to answer. Hard because I like to get too chatty. I will list just a few. My  favorite gifts are my kids handmade cards. Nothing makes me smile bigger! My family and friends are the most special gift God has ever blessed me with.  My salvation- that is the most important one! and of course I like goodies too. Anything coffee or crafty and I am goodie :) hehehe!

You can see the Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow on my blog sidebar along with many other pieces of her creations on my blog. My other fav gift are my cameras that my hubby gave me. He gave me my first 35mm camera, then upgraded me to digital & since then many other wonderful digital cameras that I enjoy photographing the world with.
