Wow what a powerful word. Definition of Perseverance -steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., esp. in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. Well today I watched an example of perseverance, of someone that exemplified the word. When all odds were against him he continued with his journey. Then I think girl you are the only obstacle keeping you from where you belong, you need to persevere for God has a purpose for you. So I tell you I don't know what your purpose is, or if you have an obstacle standing in your way but know that you and you alone have the power to Persevere in any given situation. Be encourage by this video, thanks Sarah Eden for sharing this with me.

Yes I'm giving it a go

I've decided to try out for the Cosmo Cricket DT call. Unfortunately no LSS here and I haven't purchased the new recent lines but here are some layouts created using some Cosmo Cricket. TFL

Who I am

As many have read in my past layout, I have been questioning if God listens to my prayers, will today I got this answer. I was talking to a good friend today and she led me to this song title I know who I am by Israel and New Breed. I just had to listen to it, and boy when God wants you to know His everlasting love you have to listen.
here are the lyrics I used for my layout

I was running and You found me
I was blinded and You gave me sight
You put a song of praise in me
I was broken and You healed me
I was dying and You gave me life
Lord You are my identity
I know I know

I am forgiven
I am Your friend
I am accepted
I know who I am

I am secured
I'm confident
That I am loved
I know who I am

I am alive
I am set free
I belong to You
You belong to me
I know who I am
Know who I am
I know who I am
I am Yours I am Yours
And You are mine
Jesus You are mine

To Emily

My Emily always questions why do you do more layouts of Elisa or Chris and not me. I always tell her that I have done some of her, yeah she says but most of your layouts are filled with Elisa. I just felt so bad so I did a friend album of her and her best friend she was so excited, but she just had her jr. prom and she looked absolutely beautiful, unfortunately so many things went wrong on her day. The journaling explains it all, So Emily this is for you.
Journaling "Emily so many things went wrong on the day of your Jr. prom. Your original dress purchased for your prom was ruined by the dry cleaners just 2 hrs. before your prom. Your brother was in the hospital & I was in a panic because I want this day to be so special. I left the hospital, picked you up and in less that one hour we got an even prettier dress, and accessories. You looked absolutely gorgeous."

I believe in the power of prayer

so with that said let me tell you ladies I need your prayers my son Chris has been in the hospital since Monday, He developed a rash, fever and he's also diabetic with Downs Syndrome. Needless to say the doctors are baffled with whats going on with the fevers. Antibiotics are not working they were changed this morning at midnight. I am home this morning just for a bit, I've been sleeping at the hospital and up to this point I had sitters watching my 3 yr old while dd's went to school, unfortunately no sitter today and I had to leave my son alone. It was heartwrenching, he's 22yrs old but his mind is that of a five yr old. He's scared and keeps on telling me he doesn't want to die. I have to assure him that he's going to be okay and that the hospital is taking good care of him. We really have the best care, nurses and doctors are great. It's just frustrating cause they don't know where this infection rash is coming from and the infectious disease doctors had to come in on his case. so please keep us in your prayers, and pray that he doesn't develop a fever today. His blood sugar levels have been above 400 and some have been so high that the monitor can't read them, this is a problem because he could go into a coma. Which is really my biggest fear as well as the doctors. So again I encourage you all to keep my son in prayers, and pray that God gives me the strength that I need to help him through this. I've uploaded a photo taken of him two weeks ago having a good time at the pool, I want him home.

photo swap

don't you just love photo swaps I had the pleasure of scrapping Marcene's beautiful little girl. I especially love the photo, because it looks like she's lost in her thoughts. I created a layout with the photo titled I wonder, I hope you love it as much as I do. Oh and don't you just love this Prima paper. I got it in a kit from the scrapping spot, with the heart diecut which I outlined, and the eyelet fabric.
