I don't make New Years resolutions because I am old enough to realize they are quickly forgotten but I have been stopping and thinking about how I want to approach this new year mentally and spiritually. Of course, I want it to be a fabulous year filled with goodness, but I also want to please God in my thoughts and actions.
We sang the following song this last Sunday in church and I realized as we were singing the words that this is where I want to be as the New Year approaches. I can feel overwhelmed at times with stuff and I want to be able to rest more in God's leading and His wisdom.
Here are the words of the first part of the song, God I Look to You
God I look to You, I won't be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God I look to You, You're where my help comes from
Give me wisdom; You know just what to do
I put the link to the YouTube of the song in case you are interested.
Of course, I also want to create more so sharing a couple cards on the first day of the year seems appropriate.
First up, I wanted to use the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, so here is my card for that. I think my favorite part of the trigger is that great gingham bench so I stamped a Hero Arts background stamp in a soft blue for the background.
My other favorite part are the colors and the wonderful feel of the posts on the bed. I used my Cricut to cut this piece that made me think of the bed posts. I also wanted to mix creams with whites like in the Trigger.
Here is the Tuesday Trigger.
Next up, I wanted to break out some new stamps I just received from Paper Smooches so I went along with the Sparks challenge, Anything Goes.
The trees were stamped on patterned paper and the lacey edges are a paper border punch.Here is the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.
