Romans 15:13



May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace. Romans 15:13

This is one of my favorite cards that I have made to date! It is so simple but I love it!

I hope you guys have had a terrific day! Mine has been great! Actually... everyday is great! Some days you just get some little joys that, in the big scheme of things, don't matter much but... in the small world of ______ (insert your name here)... Kelley... mean a lot! I have had several of those lately! God is good!

Everyday is great as long as I don't let the devil take away my joy! he tries really hard sometimes! :) .... for example... this is the 2nd time I have typed this post... the first one was lost... ugh!

Anyway.... gotta keep it short! I have bribed my son to leave me alone and play by himself for a few minutes so I can get this post done! Ha!! I get my post done and he gets an orange peanut! A circus peanut if you don't know what an orange peanut is... that is Carvers terminology! :)

I love this card, too, Kelley. Sometimes simple is just better, you know? Looks like Carver's got him some good photography skills -- or maybe it's just his exceptional subject. :) Oh, and I'd do just about anything for an "orange peanut", too. Love those things. (I never grew up... got old, but didn't grow up...) :)

I love the color of this card, and the wonderful scripture passage - so true! Sorry I didn't see you at church tonight...... And Carver is an amazing photographer!!

I love simple cards and this one needs nothing else. It is perfect just the way it is..!! awesome. Great photo of you!!!

I'm sorry, but you are just so stinkin' beautiful! Golly, golly gosh, GIRL! I love that happy shot of you! It just confirms to me that our kids make the BEST photographers (if the camera can stay in focus! As is NOT the case when I hand the lens off to my lil' people...) But anywhooo - you're breathtaking! AND then, there's that card! I could fill a novel with all the reasons I think that simple cards are NOT simple! And the people who make them as magnificent as you do are truly talented! Such is the case! I love your work and the sentiment! Very uplifting!

{Just like YOU!}

Beautiful card, Beautiful message! I love that sentiment, I need more of those in my stash and more flowers, I have like...none! What a great picture too, I think Carver needs to give me some tips on photography! :)

I am absolutely loving the picture Carver took of you. Wow! It is seriously such an amazing photo! I think you should buy him his own camera and set him up with some photography classes! Ha! I'm really loving it! And I think your card is so beautiful! I love the scripture on it! I'm so glad I know you!
