Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

May God bless your Christmas ~ Thank you dear Encouragers!

Hullo there everyone, I do pray you are managing to be on schedule for whatever you have to do today.
I just wanted to take the time to thank each you for the great blessing of your encouragement over the year and to pray the LORD's blessing upon each of you and those you love this Christmas time and His keeping upon you all for the coming year.
 
If our greatest need had been information,
God would have sent us an educator.

If our greatest need had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist.

If our greatest need had been money,
God would have sent us an economist.

If our greatest need had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer.

But our greatest need was forgiveness,
so God sent us a Saviour.
-Roy Lessin

Indeed a lovely post...you have also used Roy Lessin's verse which I have pinned as I thought it was very good....may God bless you at this Christmastime and indeed every day of 2014 in His will. Hope you have a lovely time with your family....over here it is blowing a gale as I'm sure you've heard from Manchester....we are waiting on even stronger winds today and maybe a little snow....but we have a fire, a gas stove and a home and food and what more could one want..Lots of Love. x

Hi Sharon, You expressed all my own thoughts so beautifully well. Loved that poem, and it's good to remind all of us just what this season really celebrates. The greatest gift of all, if we just accept the gift. Thanks to you for all your marvelous inspiring cards this year, your encouraging comments & lovely emails. I'm so blessed to have found your website. I wish you a very Merry Christmas, with all the things you pray for, and looking forward to more fun in the coming New Year. Hugs & Blessings.
