So, here it is Thursday and I am posting about our June Card Making Ministry. As usual, it was a great time for those of us that got together. There was six of us on Monday night. Three of the regulars was not there, but we had three new ladies to show up, and they brought a bushel of fun with them. I sure do hope and pray that they continue to come, it really is a blessing to get together and make cards. We laughed so much that my ribs was sore the next day. Those of us who have been doing it for a while was readily eager to help the new ladies jump in and start creating cards.
As usual, we made three different cards. Each person made two of each one so we all made a total of six cards. We each keep one of each, and then give the other card to the church. Some times the Pastor will get some and the rest are passed out to the ladies in Sunday School for them to send to the sick and shut-ins. Everyone loves them. I did make pics and would love to share them with y'all.
Now, this first card was a Patriotic card that we made last month and I did not have one of them at the time I posted the others that we made. It is a very beautiful card with all the angles and stars and red, white and blue. A wonderful card. The lady that is in charge of this project always does an awesome job in choosing what we make. It is also noteworthy to mention that her husband helps her cut a lot of the pieces out. He's a keeper!!!!
As I leave you this morning, I leave you with a wonderful scripture.
Psalm 118:24 says, "This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Is that your mind set this morning as you get ready to start another day? I really hope it is. This is the day the Lord has made. You and I had nothing to do with it. God made it for us. There "has never been" another day in the history of world exactly like this one. There "will never be" another day in the history of the world exactly like this one. We get one shot at this one day. We will either rejoice and be glad in it, because that is the choice we made, or we will grumble and stumble through it and make everyone around us miserable. I pray that all of y'all will make the choice to be "glad" in it. Yes, I do know and realize that a lot of you are facing this day with lots of difficulty and uncertain circumstances. But, if you have a personal relationship with the One who made this day for you, then you know He will be with you today, just like He was yesterday, and just like He will be with you tomorrow. God is the creator of all time, every second of it. Let's make a conscious effort today to rejoice in all of our circumstances. Let's make an effort today, to be glad in this day, because it is a unique day and we want to make the best of it.
Memorize this scripture, if you haven't already and let that be your "motto" for every day of the rest of you life, recognizing that God made the days, and we will joyfully, be glad in every day that He lets us be a part of. That sounds like a pretty good plan y'all!
Well, I hope y'all have a spectacular day ahead of yourselves. Enjoy the day. Tell someone you know that God made this day just for them because He loves them. Everyone needs a little hope. My hope is God, thru Jesus Christ. I pray yours is too.
Have a wonderful day Ladybug! Sweetpea loves you!
Until next time, God loves y'all and so do I. hugs, Patty
