2008 was New Beginnings...
This year, our Care Ministry at church had a theme of NEW BEGINNINGS. To each person, we had a new beginning of what the Lord was doing within our lives. It looked different for each of us. For myself, it was reconciling a few relationships in my family that have been broken and learning how to FEEL different emotions without feeling like the world was going to end. I do not have that one mastered yet, but I anticipate 2009 giving me more opportunities! ;)
All year our theme was GATES, so as we closed this year in praising GOD for all that He has done in our lives, I thought this stamp set was fitting, so I made each person on our team one of these cards, there were 10 in all.
I used Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - Thanksgiving Blessings stamp set and colored the image with Copics. They blend beautifully!
As I am closing out 2008 and heading into 2009, I know I am not the same spiritually as I was at the beginning of the year. God has been chipping away at the scars within me, healing me and molding me like clay into some thing more. I know I have not arrived yet, but I look forward to see what He has in store for our family for the coming year. I pray your New Year will be filled with much happiness, joy and good health!
ENJOY THE SEASON! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
