Lit'l Cowboy


I had a wonderful week. We hosted our churches first Missions conference, and the furtherest north one ever ! It was exciting to see the Lord stir the hearts of our people for the souls of people all around the world. We found that true J.O.Y. comes from putting Jesus first, Others second and Yourself last, joy. We heard from missionairies to Whales,and Italy and one I can not mention because of the dangerous state of that country and how they feel about christians. Thank God for a free country in which to live and serve Him !! There is so much in my heart, I can't quite find all the words to say. But with all that going on I hadn't had time to stamp. Usually when I neglect stamping or my blog for even a day,I get frustrated. But this week God put some things into perspective for me and stamping just didn't seem like such a high priority anymore. I know i'm rambling on, but I just know that if we would put God first He would bless us and give us the desires of our hearts.
Everything else i've made lately has seemed blah to me,I know because I rushed them just to stamp something to put up because I had neglected my blog for so long, but today I determined to put God first with Bible reading and prayer and then really give the kids my full attention with homeschool, we had fun actually and went above and beyond with some extra fun activities. Then to top it all off I had time to make this card and I really like how it turned our. Everything is T.A.C. But my point is that if you put God first he will make even your stamping projects turn out right !!!

Laurie,

You are so right on about putting God first. That is awesome that you did your bible reading, prayer, kids first before stamping! Kudos to you. I normally read the word (Bible) ever morning and pray ever morning before we start our day. Saturdays are the exception, it is only after breakfast etc that we sit down to the word...I think I need to change that. Any whooo....You go girl!!
Praying for you and your family oftern. Blessings!
