As you may notice my blog has taken on a new look... what do you think? I wanted to jazz it up a bit... did it work?
I have one little project to share with you for now... I am working on so much for our ladies' ministry... maybe I will have something to share later...but for now here is a little notebook I did for a NOFL gift...very simple, I know.

Also, I have a verse for today: John 14:27 - "Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]" (Amplified)

I love what the Amplified translation says about not permitting yourself to be agitated, disturbed, fearful & intimidated. Remember these words are the “red letter” words so they are right from Christ’s mouth (so to speak). *Ü* What does peace mean to you? It can mean great things like establishing peace from a war in the world, but it can also mean finding peace from the war I have going on inside of me… you know... those days when everything or everyone seems to be irritating… when I get disturbed over the dumbest things… when fear grabs hold of me over a passing thought (those “what if” moments)… when I come face to face with someone I feel is better than me… even on those days when I can’t remember the words I am trying to speak… these are the days when this verse comes to my mind… God gave His Son as my ransom & in return Christ gave me peace that passes ALL understanding… what LOVE… what SACRIFICE… what PEACE! I hope you have peace today! Thanks for stopping!

with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Good Morning,
I love your words of wisdom from God today.
I had a very restless nite..............these words put things back into perspective a little more. Not to worry and let our minds take us all kinds of places is not something that I do often, but when it does, it is a long haul.
Thank you soooooo much for the wonderful breakfast, fellowship, and scrabble game that we were able to share on Sat. We need to make more time to get together that way. It is so refreshing. Having you and Luke in our lives is such an awesome blessing. Hope you have a great day!
See you at church.
Love Ya Lots, Barb
ps notebook is beautiful
