Good morning, Friends. Our challenge this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges comes from Randi Barrett with LaLa Land Crafts as our sponsor.
Randi chose the following verses:
Matthew 2:11 - On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.
Matthew 7:7-11 - Ask & it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know who to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
This time of year, it's all about gifts, isn't it? I love choosing an item for a particular person. It's fun to find something the other one will value or (my favorite reaction) love. What a gloriously loving God to give us good gifts...ones we can love! And we can give Him the gift of our love, honor & worship.
My card this week show cases gift packages for a birthday celebration. And it happens to be for our very own Lisa Hjulberg! The SSCC ladies are giving her a virtual birthday party today....Join us by heading on over to her blog to give her good wishes for a wonderful birthday. I've brought her a special gift: A Royal Albert Flower of the Month teacup to add to her collection. Go to Pamela's blog next to see what else we've got for our birthday celebration.
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, Dear Lisa. Happy Birthday to you!
