Happy Sketch



New stamps arrived recently...you know what that means...




Gotta use them!


I went for one of the biggest happy in my stash.


I was inspired by the following delightful challenges...

Challenge #200 - LET'S CELEBRATE!!!





As we remember today...let us also be encouraged to pray for God's peace, wisdom and discernment.


I pray we are not filled with fear, but remember God's providence and peace even in perilous times.


It's painful to think upon that day, September 11, but I also want to remember how our hearts have been softened and how much that day personally woke me up out of a spiritual slumber.


Leave no room for complacency or the mundane...every day is a gift.


~May God guide you and keep you~
