Bubbling with joy...

I know I have been lax in my blogging for the last week... really I have not been sitting around the house eating bon bons! Ok, I did have a Hershey's kiss the other day, but no bon bons... although those peanut butter bon bons from Walmart are really good!!! Sorry I will get on with the post.
Her is a "mini" card I tried... the back is just a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of CS... and the mini part is just 2 1/2 x 3 (started w/a 10" piece of CS folded accordion style). It is a simple little card... I think the SU DSP makes it. It is hard to see but in the frame it says, "there's only one you"... and that is true of all my blog visitors.

I am off to serve as receptionist at the church today, but before that I want to share this verse with you that my pastor used last night at church... he has been teaching on re-energizing your life... I had an aah hah moment with this verse:

"May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope." Romans 15:13

I know I have read that verse many times before, but for some reason this time it just jumped off the page at me... it was exactly what I needed to see & what the Holy Spirit needed me to "hear". How about you... do you need to be re-energized too???

with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you last night. I was rushing around to get to Res Kids. I am the pre-childcare person on the night that I do check in and that means I have to be back there by 6:15. Bethany's came last night about 6:30. She loved the message and the kids had a great time also. Saturday is our family reunion so have lots to do to get ready. I am praying for sun. Have a great day. Love you - Sharon

What a cute card!
Yes - I could use some re-energizing. I've read that verse before too, but I love the bubbling over thought!
