Looking ahead

With the new year just around the corner, are you looking at a new you?  I am !  Many make New Years resolutions, with good intentions,  I don't!  To me making a new year resolutions is like jumping off a cliff and hoping there is something soft to land on.  I don't like that philosophy, I tried it once when I was ten.  My thought was if I jump off the diving board in the deep end of the pool I will force myself to learn how to swim.  The life guard told me there was a better way to learn after he made sure I was breathing again.
There are many season in our lives, some are longer than others, some are happier than others, but they all come and they all go.  This new Year I want to be a kinder person, I want to speak more life and healing into peoples lives and less judgment and criticism.  I also want to take better care of myself so that I can better care for others.   I posted 'there is nothing too hard for the Lord' from the verse in Genesis; in the NT testament the Lord tells us, that 'with men some things are impossible, but with God all things are possible'! I want to slide my impossibilities over  to the Lord and watch him surprise me, pouring his grace and mercy, making all things possible!
I encourage you to take a few minutes and think about the impossibilities in your life and ask God into to those situations and then have faith for a happy surprise!!

 
 
 
 
Today I made a couple of Birthday cards with my Use It Up stash:
 
 5x7
 

 4.75x6

This gal was supposed to go on the card above, can you guess why it didn't?  Yes you are right.
Ugly. When I went to put a dot of CR3 on her lips, oops!!  Needless to say I choose a slightly more subtle color for the image I did finish the card with! You cant see the pl1 (pink) I did use in the photo, but you can see it in real life .
 
I hope you have a great day, thanks for taking a minute to stop by!
