I picked Psalm 143:8-9 which I love:

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go
for to you I lift up my soul.

I have this memorized to keep it in my mind. I so dislike when I don't start my day without the Lord leading me and my day...it is not to say it goes smooth but he does know what is going on and what will happen. He is there with me and I trust him no matter whether it is a good day or not. I know for whatever reason things happen he has a plan. He does give me peace and I know He loves me and with that thought in mind I can go about my day...it is a nice scripture to remember and have to wake up to. I like to think he gives me a hug everyday just like the Father He is! :)

Here is my LO I made with the verse in it:

It has a pic of a favorite place that me and my son when he was little we used to go to in the woods...it is beautiful and this is one of many pics that I love of one of our favorite places.





Recipe:I used rickrack ribbon, and choc self adhesive gems.. and used cardstock cuts and then used a pretty leaf and the a heart embellishment along with the Faith sticker that I had journal notes...

Hope you like my page and be inspired! :)

What an awesome idea. Thanks for wanting to take the time to also inspire us.

Vicki said...

I have a picture scrapped almost identical to that one Kari! I love nature and I spend so much time in the seasons photographing all the beauty that God has bestowed up us..Sadly many drive right by and don't even see the glory of His work..
