Welcome to my addiction!

Thank you for stopping in and looking around. I am an admitted paperholic and try to participate in all things stamped. In the past I have taught classes on unique techniques at our LSS and have loved every minute of it. My mind continues to want to create and share. I garner my inspiration from fellow bloggers, our LSS, and some of the horticulture magazines that come in the mail. Simple pleasures in life make me smile and that includes a simple yet elegant card or piece of paper that I see potential. Please feel free to share your work with me as I share my work with you. Enjoy your visit!

15 Days of Thankfulness

Good Morning everyone!

Today is a beautiful day.  Some of you would see it as a terrible day because it is dark, dreery and rainy out.  But I look out and see many things.  One of which is the rain washing away the dirt that gathered during the summer on the leaves and trees.  It reminds me of life and Forgiveness.  I am so thankful for Forgiveness.  God has gracefully forgiven me for all my past wrongs, and now it as I live my life, I am required to forgive others.  Sometimes it is easy, others it is so very hard.  It was very hard to forgive the young person who took my life as I knew it away.  At first I thought it was easy, but as more obsticles came up, hate would try to sneak in.  I have forgiven him though.  I have no right to hate.  God could have chosen to turn away from me, but so very fortunately He didn't.  It has become fairly easy to forgive and forget.  Not necessarily completely, because I would prefer not to let you hurt me in the same way again, but I don't hold grudges.  I am thankful for Forgiveness, and I try to be graceful in giving it.  And I pray that those I've hurt or offended, either knowingly or un, will forgive me as well.  What a wonderfully blessed thing -- Forgiveness :)

Blessings and Love,
