I think my sentiment is directed at Mom Nature today.....she really needs to regulate the air pressure/temperature so my head stands half a chance. LOL. I have to blame this sinus headache on something.
It is time for the monthly DUEL between the Divas and the Dazzlers. And, our theme this month is Angels.
Now to admit to being a bonehead. I made a beautiful card (patting myself on the back here). Put it up on my easel and there it sat until I gave it to a very special wee one on her 5th birthday! Unfortunately, no picture survived.....not sure if I even took one, to tell you the truth....lol
So, here is what I created with the leftovers from that card! I also must admit to cleaning my desk after I made my invisible post and got rid of the deets of the kit....lol
Check out my sidebar for the rest of the Duelers (you can find kit deets there)!
Our Crafters of Faith group changed direction the first of the year.
We became the Carriers of Faith.
I think both titles apply now - and, then also!
Rather than post cards, we will be posting a scripture and a blurb showing our feelings and thoughts about that verse; along with a picture.
Kelly is starting us off with this challenge:
January Challenge : January Scripture: “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10 January photo inspiration: Spending time in stillness, in prayer."
I searched back through some of the photos I took and while many reflect on this verse I decided this was the most perfect.
What better way than to landscape the front of out house with some lillies? Not the lily that you typically associate with Easter and the Resurrection, but one which shows off his magnificent being. It is purple to signify his kingly presence, it blooms once a year to show his coming and it does so when you are least expecting it. If can easily be missed as it blooms seemingly out of nowhere. One day it is just pretty green foliage, the next you see the stem reaching out of its folds, reaching to show you it's magnificence and its bloom. Drawing you to it. Knowing that you have believed and prayed that it would come again. And there it is. Glorious! The answer you have been shown. If you aren't there at the right time, believing, knowing, you would have missed it. So like the answer to our prayers. You must be still and listen to Him. The answer appears, just like my lily.
