That's the Scripture this week for our challenge at Stampin' Sisters In Christ. Our challenge is to make a card that shows or expresses JOY or joyfulness. I think this digi image from Shirley's 2 Girls is perfect! Isn't this girl adorable flying away on her balloons?
The trick in life (for lack of a better word) is to allow this joy to be our experience no matter what our circumstance may be. In Nehemiah, he reminded the people to not grieve because the joy of the Lord was their strength. I think it's ours, too! When I focus on the Truth, I can somehow get beyond the circumstance of the day. I might still feel sad, but underneath at the very core of my being, there is JOY!
It's like that old hymn which is actually based on 2 Timothy 1:12: "For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I've committed unto Him against that day."
Please join us HERE so we can see your joy! Blessings, Laurie
