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."

Happy Birthday to me .. almost

I made this card for 3 (yes, 3) challenges. I know that is bad, but I know time has been so scarce lately I took advantage of the challenges I could use for this card. One challenge ((the pink elephant)) was to use the colors pink, green and yellow. another (lili of the valley )) was to make a fun / funny card and another ((spoon full of sugar)) was to make a card with a number on it. I used my mwahbella for this card. I thought it went well with my feelings toward my 30th birthday. Kiss the good ol days behind, lol. not really... :) . I am not happy with my handwriting, but I think the card is fun and pretty all in one:) Hope you think so too :).

I got yet another sweet package in the mail today!!! My sweet friend Heather sent me a beautiful package including a very sweet card. My daughter loved the card just as much as I. She could not believe someone colored the image in so perfectly. Heather wrote me the nicest note too. Thank you ... everything you sent was perfect, you really overdid it girl! I love mu Gruffie stamp (my very FIRST Gruffie!!! YAY!!!) It could not have been more perfect!
Not only did I get that surprise today ~ we did not have an Easter dinner yesterday so my mom told me we would have it today. After dinner tonight my sister distracted me with something on the computer while my mom and the kids flew in and set the table up with a surprise party for me. I was shocked and so surprised. It was so sweet of them. I cant believe I did not hear anything going on when I was just in the other room :). My mom even wrote on the balloons. One said "Lordy lordy Heathers 40 with arrows to turn it over. I did not even catch the 40 thing:) lol!!! I was so surprised. When I read the other side of the balloon it said "see, it could be worse:)" lol! for those of you who do not know I really kindof have been dreading turning 30 :/.

I could not have had a more perfect birthday! Thank you to all of you who made it so wonderful!:)
