So my desk.. it’s actually a bit clean for me as cleanup continues! Wow, the things I’ve found.
I’ve managed now to make a dozen Christmas cards of my January two dozen aim, which is good as next week is wipe out with visitors and will be prob MIA.
Finished cards, as you can see they’re quite different from last weeks with same stamp, the stamp Poinsetta CCS set.
Verse is really great one by Stampendous so sharing close up. As you can see did three, slightly different.
Last card is a Snippets card well and truly. All those green pieces were digis. I found when doing search a year or so ago for a person who loves green and found them again in cleanup.
They looked so good together the card was born, butterfly was digi too.
I added a verse by Stampabilities, a favourite verse of mine which I often claim “WITH God ALL things are possible.”
Also loads of unspoken jobs are being done for months. By Aussies, army etc and other nations from overseas, too. Sadly press dramatises it all as if nothing is being done. This is wrong & untrue. This group in grey were called by locals "grey angels" and from army found a lady's jewel box with grandmas jewels intact!
They've been amazing as are sooo many!
Criticism of our PM is also unjust. Also I want to praise God here, because many are praying as I have for keeping safe of all folks, praying for wind changes, etc.
Many answers given.Time and time again have heard seen tales of amazing protection, especially through wind change.
Much better illustration & more on drought fires over at latest post on my other blog here. LOTS of past examples to give local context to the current events.
“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous“ quote of a friend.
Also after a recent visit there by a family member, they said today although the fires are really horrible, some wildlife had had to be sterilised due to overpopulation on such a small island. Culling has its natural advantages, although horrible, & some flora depend of fires for regeneration of seeds.
Also a koala is not a bear! Bears are mammals, koalas are marsupials not mammals.
Quite unique but not cuddly like they appear, they've good claws! And can be cranky, as like to sleep 18 - 22 hours a day!
Wouldn't this make a lovely card? Saw this digi on FB so saved it as it's long been favourite of mine.
"The joy of the LORD is thy Strength".
I've illuminated it, and I've always considered Strength is God hence capitals. When life is hard, and there is little joy, then it's knowing God's comfort, help and grace that joy is found. Truly that then is the joy of the Lord which is Thy Strength!
