D is for Draw Near

Sometimes God feels so far away. He doesn't move, it's me who wanders. I stop reading from His word. I stop talking to Him. In fact, I barely think about Him. Well, maybe a quick prayer before bed. There's always something to ask of Him. But, no time to thank Him. No time to stop and listen for his still voice.
God keeps His promises. If I'm truly seeking, I will find. If I'm alone, He's there. All I need to do is reach out... to draw near.

Love and blessings,

School Queens altered book

This was my first attempt at an altered book. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.:-) I'm always looking for new ways to enjoy papercrafts!

Throughout you can see shadowboxes, original poetry, clipart, tag art and even a pocket for a pumpkin. I had so much fun creating this.
I'd love to see examples of others' paperart and even feature it on my blog. Just contact me at (subject: Paperart) if you'd like me to feature you.

God Bless,

C is for Cast Your Cares

 "But I do turn things over to God," you protest. But, does your worrying lessen? Or do you go right on wringing your hands and losing sleep? When we truly cast our cares on the Lord, we give them over to Him. We tell Him we have faith that He will take care of us. It's scary. But remember, worrying rarely gives any satisfaction. We don't lose anything by losing our worry. But, we gain everything when we turn our troubles over to God.

Love and blessings,

B is for Be Kind

We refer to ourselves as divas and goddesses (and even princesses). Think of the connotations those titles bring to mind. A little better than others? Putting one's self first? Demanding? I think, no I know, what I need to work on. I need to think a little less of self and a little more of others.
For today... I will be kind.

 Love and blessings,

Liebster Award

I was nominated for this award by Evi from 918 Plate, Tales from a Tulsa Table. Please check out all she has to offer at her blog also!

What is the Newbie Blogger Liebster Award?

The Newbie Blogging Liebster Award is an award given to new bloggers, usually for those who have less than 200 followers, by other bloggers as a way to support each other in our journey to growing and building our blogs.

  3. Nominate a small group of other new bloggers you’ve discovered
  4. Create 10 new questions for the nominees
  5. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog.

Here are my questions, along with my answers!

  1. When did you start your blog? I've had my blog in many forms for a while now. But, I've only recently decided to get serious about it.
  2. What’s the one big thing you want your readers to know? My thoughts on life are always entertaining. My glasses aren't rose colored, but kaleidoscope ones would be pretty.

  7. Do you have a favorite childhood memory? Climbing a tall tree with an apple and and a book, and spending a wonderful afternoon reading.
  8. Can you listen to other things while you blog, or does it need to be quiet? I like to watch old TV series (such as Barney Miller or Emergency). They are background, but I don't have to pay strict attention.

A is for Ask

The scriptures are full of God's promises. They are reminders that He doesn't just ask from us, but He is a generous and loving God who gives.
