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."

Flower Power!!!

Today we have a new challenge posted for you at Freshly Brewed Challenges..
But that's not all! It is our MONTH LONG PRIZE CHALLENGE
So come on over and play along. 
We have a fun tic tac toe challenge for you: 

For my card I chose to use the 

I actually had this card made for a while now and do not think I have posted it ??? (I don't think)
My brain has turned into complete MUSH lately getting ready for Mayfest (a local craft show / festival / kick off to summer / super scary event that my mom and I are participating in for the first time and are only  a little freaked :/ (ahhhhhhh!!!). 
I have completed approx 30 cards this past week and low and behold all of them had three or more parts to the tic tac toe board, but none that made a winning score! HAHAHAH!!! 
Sooooooo that is why I dug out this one :))
I loved creating this card. The felt and stitching and button make for one very HEAVY card, but in 70s lingo, Heavy is not such a bad thing :D hehehehe!!!

Today is a very special day for me. 
Today, 14 years ago, I married the love of my life. He is so amazing and so wonderful. Of course we have our moments ;) but we also have may more moments that make us laugh at the other 'moments' that include both his and my monthly moody times (hehehe! Yes, I am saying he has his two. I won't blame myself for all of them! ;) He is a wonderful daddy. He loves the kids so much. He loves me and tells me all the time how wonderful he thinks I am even when I feel like a total failure. He lifts me up, he prays for me, he tells me I am beautiful inside and out and he means it. He emails me little love notes when I am in here working on blog posts :) and he just does little sweet things that amount to a lot more than any big things you could buy.
He gave me my anniv gift last night around midnight. I wanted this really pretty white travel mug from starbucks but it was tooooooo expensive for me to ok in my head to purchase. Well, when I went to make coffee (Yes, last night at midnight) There it was with a gift card to starbucks. Silly Man. I was so surprised.
He knows me so well! I will not buy starbucks drinks because I feel they are too expensive on our budget. I cant do it without feeling guilty, so when I get a gift card, I use it sparingly and enjoy it as much as possible :)

Anyway ~ thanks for listening to my ramblings... moving on :)
I do hope you will stop by the challenge blog and play along.
