Comfort in God's Word

I am filled with God's love what is your assignment?

It is a list of scriptures to “call upon” when needed. I have found it very helpful to me. I thought maybe you would too. If you find yourself today in any of the situations listed below, I want to encourage you to take a few minutes today to read the corresponding scripture that goes with it. I pray you would find comfort in God’s living word.
When there is sorrow…Call John 14

If you want to be fruitful…Call John 14
When you have sinned…Call Psalm 51
When you worry…Call Matthew 6:19-34
When you are in danger…Call Psalm 91
When God seems far away…Call Psalm 139
When your faith needs stirring…Call Hebrews 11
When you are lonely or fearful…Call Psalm 23
When you grow bitter or critical…Call 1 Corinthians 13
For Paul’s secret of happiness…Call Colossians 3:12-17
When you feel down and out…Call Romans 8:31-39
When you want rest and peace…Call Matthew 11:25-30
When the world seems bigger than God…Call Psalm 90
When you want Christian assurance…Call Romans 8:1-30
When you leave home for labor or travel…Call Psalm 121
When you prayers grow narrow and selfish…Call Psalm 67
For a great invitation and opportunity…Call Isaiah 55
When you want courage for a task…Call Joshua 1
How to get along with fellow men…Call Romans 12

Flower Pin With Jewel

Red Flower Pin w/Jewel

Welcome, Welcome... today I decided to try something new.  I love paper and everything that has to do with paper crafting!!   I have a secret though...I really like fabric, ribbon and textiles too!!.  I was sitting down at the craft table and this piece of fabric was calling my name.  I recently read an article on fabric and flowers so I decided to put it to the test and here is what I ended up with.  I'm gonna wear it tomorrow.  After I perfect it  I may just sell these cuties at the craft show.  I'm gonna try different fabrics, jewels and colors.  Here are some additional uses:
1.  Embellishment for your scrapbook page or card ( without the pin back of course!)
2.  Barrett
3.  Headband Accessory
4.  T-shirt or Jacket pin
5.  Anything else you want it to be

Hope you enjoy! Now go and do great things...but keep it CAS  ...Clean & Simple

Thanks for Stopping by!!

This is the LYFE!!!

Greetings - this is the day the Lord has made....I will be glad in it!!! On it!!! through it!!! With it!!! you get it!! Right???  Well, anyhoo....  I wanted to share with you about life's simple pleasures!!  There are many things going on around us, so many challenges, so many things to get done.  We have school, band practice, performances, husbands, bills etc.  The only thing that keeps me sane is the Lord God Almighty! 

NOW on to the story.....We went out on the town with our friends Michael and LaKesha...and by the way we partied all night long at I-HOP drinking all their coffee and laughing..this was actually the second or third stop of the night!!!  My husband and I had not been out on a date and seen 2:30am in over 6 years!!! WOW!!

Well .. we left some very precious cargo at home.  Austyn (teenager) and our Schnauzer LYFE... Austyn called us every hour on the hour to see if we were ok and Lyfe his fearless companion was right by his side!!  Lyfe is the keeper of the house, the backup alarm system, the I got your back Austyn, if anything happens I will bite them on the butt!!! LOL......  They were awake when we got home saying "it's about time y'all come home, do y'all know what time it is"?  (Simple Pleasure)

(I took the opportunity to tell Austyn that this is how we would feel but double the worry if he was out late cause he is younger and not OLD ( had to throw that in to make a point) like us...he.. he..he..  Just to remember when that time comes to be responsible.)

The next morning this is what I looked down and saw!!!  This simple pleasure!!!

                              Lyfe either partied all night too or worked the late shift! LOL

Making Crafting a little easier! Michaels and Hobby Lobby Coupons

Just print the following coupons and enjoy your shopping.

Simply....Thinking of you!!!

Who have you thought of lately?  Who have you thought of lately and you actually let them know?  Who have you thought of lately and actually let them know with more than just spoken words?  There is nothing more exciting to me than going to the mailbox to find an envelope inside addressed to me ( and it's not a BILL..LOL).  When I open it it's a card from someone that I had not spoken with in a long time.  It may be a friend from across town that I've been meaning to call and invite to lunch.  It could be that church member that I have not seen in a while.  It could be from my sister reminiscing of a time long ago, or my mom just saying HELLO ;)  Receiving a simple card could mean so much. 
Take the time to make a card or two! 
If you don't have time call me and I can whip you up a few.  
If you want to learn how... I can help with that too!

Have a Blessed Day and remember let someone know that you are thinking of them.
Now go and do great things even if it's on the simpler side of life!!
