He calls me beautiful...

It has been a few days since I last posted... ok, more than a few... but today I will show you what I have been doing with my time for the last week or more. First of all I have to tell you that my hubby surprised me with a Cricut Expression for Christmas... he is such a sweetheart!... which led me to "project butterfly" for our January Night Out For Ladies at church... so I started cutting 324 butterflies... in 3 sizes... 1 1/2, 2 1/4, & 3 1/2 inch & in four colors.

As you can see in these 2 pics three double sided butterflies were put on wires... three single sided butterflies were "perched" in the tulle around the vase... also each butterfly was accented with diamond stickles... I thought it gave it a little extra touch... the pics don't do the arrangements justice... This pic shows how pretty it looked with the candles lit The message for the night was "He Calls Me Beautiful"... the scripture that was used was Psalm 45: 11 "The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him, for He is your Lord. "

Beth, our senior pastor's assistant, was the speaker... she did a great job of sharing her heart... what God put on her heart... I am sure there were many lives touched last night... a lot of work goes into our monthly Night Out for Ladies... but if just one soul is changed... it is worth it 100 times over.
There are many days I am sure every woman doesn't feel beautiful... but if you are a daughter of the King... you are always beautiful to Him because He made you... He knows your heart... besides there can't be any ugly princesses! *Ü* Enough for now... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Oh Carin- How can I tell you what a great job you did on the butterflies. They were absolutely gorgeous. In having read your post just now, tears came to my
eyes again as I was reminded what the Lord thinks of us & his precious & all encompassing love. I for one was truly blessed & changed forever last night.
Bless you for all you do. I am grateful to have you as a friend & sister in Christ.
Love, Deb

Thanks for sharing these beauties! And thanks for your encouragement about our own beauty, something with which I struggle on a daily basis. I know God created me and I am beautiful in His eyes, but sometimes it doesn't feel like it!
