“Rejects” - first similar to shared before (left over of said sample, diff. stamp used tho).
Piece on the left was a whimpy, inky green embossed piece. Nice folder, nice colour, but messed up watery ink idea -> reject pile.
Spied it one day - thought Versamark + perfect pearls - voilá! It’s stunning.
Another reject - copied J.McGuire idea of EF with foiled card + sand top layer off to highlight. Mm, NOT good thick foil, thin cheapie, not so great effect. Then saw this brilliant idea by Maxine also using an Altenew 3D, this a CASE (kinda), Maxine’s beautiful, clever card is HERE! Border floral die MB, Heros Arts Hugs Prayers stamp & die.
Some who come this way may wonder why I always mention Jesus, & to be BE SURE you know Him as your Saviour or not. This the WHY.
I've a chronic, congenital (from birth) incurable Malady, (*aka Darnell’s instructions to use malady, a much nicer word😂).
Drs can’t explain me, only God can!
I say it’s allowed of God. Originally there were NO mistakes in God’s PERFECT creation, but sin spoiled it…
NOTE: It is NOT GOD’s choice -> sorrow, grief, pain, sickness, hunger, famine, wars, suffering, death, a broken world -> ALL is a result of mankind’s sin.
God though (IF we let Him do it) is lovingly working in His way for GOOD!
Especially in me, taking me broken, sinful, lost - saving & blessing me.
My malady means I’m literally kept alive by medication. No meds I’m dead. Many others are. So not so unique there!
Quite a number of times though, I’ve collected close calls.
God wisely decides to knock off bit more of roughness of this“earthen vessel” 😉 & keeps me here. 😆
When one lives day by day like this, one knows how SHORT life is - ETERNITY is ONLY ever a breath away.
Yet it IS for us ALL.
WHEN God says time to go, I’ll say hallelujah, heaven, here I come - BUT I speak up lovingly while I can. Each post may be my last.
We must be ready for eternity NOW - when we are dead, that is too late.
ESPECIALLY TODAY - happiest of the year!
It’s RESURRECTION DAY.
The FIRST DAY of the week, almost 2,000 years ago, when our LORD Jesus arose from the dead.
Jesus did NOT stay dead, He defeated Satan’s power of death over US.
Death was punishment for all our sin & wicked ways.
On Resurrection Day the LORD Jesus Christ miraculously arose from the dead.
This MEANS we too can live forever with Him, BY FAITH in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
There is an EMPTY TOMB, an EMPTY CROSS, where our sin’s price was paid by Jesus’ blood on Calvary’s tree. Forevermore ALL who believe in Jesus, will live, too.
***PAID IN FULL***
Jesus, of all preachers in Bible - Old Testament & New Testament was the One Who spoke of hell the most.
Why? Because He KNOWS hell is as real as heaven.
He DIED TO SAVE US from it.
Are you sure you have this HOPE in Jesus?? We can be absolutely sure, I trusted in Jesus at 12 yrs old, see here - Who or What is a Christian?
Here is one more card to share, this is Snippetty, too, actually as are the other two cards. MB Prim Poppy die sadly disc.
This is whole of the passage, love it in a stamp in KJV, as more complete.
It is a prayer of blessing by Moses for Israel, God’s chosen people, and for us today, too. I pray this verse for YOU and ALL your dear ones.
The LORD bless you all & keep you all,
Make His face to Shine on you and be gracious unto you all,
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you all,
And give you all His PEACE,
in Jesus’ name, Amen.
