Plans & Promises

My turn for this weeks Salt challenge 'This week's main topic is 'Believe', but I also wanted to share with you a verse that has particularly struck me recently which is taken from Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

If only we truly believed in God's promises- we would worry so much less. It is such a reassurance to know that we have a great God who is in control of all things.

I used this Urban Lily paper to inspire the colours that iI used to colour the chipboard letters, then stamped them in black, and printed the verse.

Farewell, Friend!

The more I make books the more I wish I had a bind it all! This book has been compiled for a friend from the netherlands who has lived here for a couple of years and is due to migrate with her family to Kenya. This is a small token from the Christian toddler group that we go to, including, photos, the childrens drawings, recipes and questions that have been answered from all the mums. Like what we are goingto miss about her, and our favourite bible verses and hymns or song. I wanted to keep an old English style to it, to remind her of England.
