Scripture of the Week

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this." Isaiah 9:6-7

Have you been Christmas shopping, yet? Fought the crowds, hunted the sales, made your lists and found the perfect gift for eveyone on your list? It can be a maddening, fun, exciting time. for a child, the anticipation of Christmas is opening the gifts. For an adult, the anicipation comes in watching the gifts as they are received.

Have you opened your Christmas gift, this year? God gave to us the most precious gift of all in the form of Jesus. Through Him, we have the gift of eternal life, and life abundantly in Him. Have you received and accepted that joy? God is waiting to watch your reaction as you open your gift, this holiday season!

Deep Thoughts

Carrie and I got laughing one dayt about deep thoughts for know, if we were going to teach philosophy for preschoolers what would it look like? The deep questions prescholers might ponder: Why is a circle round? If a toddler fills his diaper in the woods...will Carrie still change it? Silly things, tht lead to a silly layout.

This one was done for the Glitz Designs Event at Scrapbbok NEws and Review. To check out more incredile eye candy for this event, look here.

Scripture of the Week

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. " John 1:1-5

Have you started your Christmas preperations, yet? Maybe you've done a little shopping, made a few gifts, or planned who will be coming for dinner. Have you started decorating for Christmas, yet? the tree, the ornaments, all the lights...they are just so beautiful. The Bible says that Christ is the light of the world, the one true light at Christmas and throughout the year.

We put up trees, stockings and treasured ornaments, every year. We decorate our homes inside and out. But, do we shine the one true Light of Christmas? Do we remember, portray, and lift up the one true Light? I have an idea, this year. One less decoration, one less party, one less gift, this year...this is my suggestion. Instead, one more act of kindness, one more person told, one more life reached, one more block of time spent with Him. This is how we shine the Light. This is how we really 'decorate' for Chirstmas.

Christmas Loot

I loved having the chance to play wioth Basic Grey's new Christmas Line; Eskimo Kisses. As usual, BG is one of my all time favorites. This year, they used more non traditional colors for their holiday line- pinks and baby blues even made an appearence. But, all of the BG charm and style is definitely there.

This was made for a SNR/BG event. To see more art from this event, please visit Scrapbook News and Review.
