Spring Fever?! Sick of Winter?

LINK TO GARDENER’S BENCH CLIP ART KIT IN STORE  $4.98

Are you ready to head out into your garden (or wishing that you could?!)   Aren’t we all?  Well, this morning I put together this “Gardener’s Bench” Digital Clip Art kit that will bring a little sunshine indoors for you.

This is a BRAND NEW art kit that is hand water colored.  A beautiful painting of a gardener’s bench was the start of the collection.  There is a 4″ x 10″ painting image suitable for a card front or other uses as well as a smaller, rectangular composition from the same painting.

It was my desire that this kit would help bring a little sunshine indoors for you. There are 18 pieces in this kit, 2 card fronts, 4 borders, 1 tag, 7 art pieces and 4 coordinating papers.  The artwork is extremely detailed and life-like.  It can be used to create your own cards, craft with or for scrapbooking.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY:  1 John 1:5-10  This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.  If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.   NIV

DEVOTIONAL:  Continuing our theme of overcoming spiritual dryness and feeling far from God, I’m going to address the issue of sin.  Sin is considered by many to be an “old fashioned” kind of a word, something our culture has “grown past” and “evolved beyond.”  But guess what?  We all sin.  EVERYBODY sins, and everybody can be forgiven of those sins, but they have to humble themselves before God in order to have those sins forgiven.

Sin keeps us separated from God.  It builds a wall that cannot be breached, it must be removed and there is only one way to do that and that is by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.  Again, and “old fashioned” concept, but one that has never lost its power to change lives!

The word sin, means among other things to “miss the mark” as in an archer shooting at the target.  I miss the mark every day.  I start each day with the desire to live it perfectly before the Lord, but guess what?  I miss the mark — over and over and over again.  Some days I barely miss and other days I miss it by a mile — whether by little or by much it is still sin.  I strive to live according to his instructions but lack the power on my own to accomplish this goal.  Here’s where I can begin to feel dry and pull away from Him.

If I’m going to “sin” (and I will) how do I keep that wall from building between the Lord and I?  I need to walk towards Him and his light each and every day.  I need to seek Him out, starting by confessing my sin and seeking His power to overcome that sin.  I constantly ask the Lord to show me where I am sinning.  I need Him to show me where I am “missing the mark,” as I’ve discovered that I am pretty blind to my biggest flaws.  I need His help to show them to me so that I can ask Him to help me change and grow.

Sometimes it is great sins that separate us from God — like King David who sinned with Baathsheba and had her husband killed.  Great sins can sometimes begin with a small disobedience where we have walked away from something God required us to do and headed in the wrong direction.  When we do this we walk straight into darkness and our heart begins to harden against the Lord.

Sometimes small series of repetitive sins begin to build the wall between us.  It can be as simple as being too busy to seek His will before making decisions, or telling little lies, or gossiping about someone you know or …  A great wall can be built up of very small stones.  We need to treat all sin equally and be quick to confess those sins and seek God’s forgiveness.  A clean heart is a heart that is free to come to our Heavenly Father with joy and abandon.

PRAYER:  Lord, I think that I have allowed sin to begin building a wall between you and I.  I want to live in your light and I ask you to show me any darkness that is lurking in my heart.  Help me to see sin like you do.  Show me my sins and show me why it is that you hate sin.  You hate the consequences of those sins in my life and the damage that I do to others and you hate sins because they separate me from you.

Thank you that you have promised in advance that if I confess my sins you will forgive them and PURIFY me from them!  Purify me Lord, make my heart clean and give me the power to live a pure life.  Help me to draw more closely to you each day.  AMEN

As I was creating the pieces I was really enjoying the way the colors were working together and the fun, young feel that they were producing.  Then I realized that they needed two more things to be complete, a whimsical butterfly and dragonfly to play in the garden!  So off to the art desk I went and here is the result.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY:  Ps 34:11-18  I will teach you the fear of the LORD.  Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.  Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.   The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.  The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.  NIV

PRAYER:  Lord, as I see the innocent being slaughtered and cry out to be saved, my heart cries out to you to deliver them from evil.  Where man is powerless, let your power be shown.  Give wisdom to the international community to know how to stop the aggression, not just temporarily but in a way that will lead to a lasting peace.  Let those that are evil in your eyes be cut off and their plans come to ruin.

Take what the enemy would have desired to produce evil and make out of it a great good.  Only you can do this Lord, we trust in you.  AMEN

New! Photo Frame-ups Digital Photo Mat Freebie

audrey jeanne roberts, photo frame for announcements or greeting card.  LINK TO PHOTO FRAME UP DOWNLOAD HERE This is the first of what will be many Photo Frame-up kits that you can send to places like Wal-Mart, Target or other photo developers that can handle digital images.  The size of this is 4″ x 8″

All you need to do is add your pictures underneath the png format file and size to fit.  Then save the file as a jpeg format (or other file type required by your photo developing service) and send to your favorite lab.  I checked this morning and saw that Wal-mart sells this size print for as low as 33 cents per print.

This would make a beautiful baby announcement.  Just add a baby picture or two and the baby’s information in the text box and print.  You can also create your own greeting card by using this as a card front rather than a photo frame-up.

In case you were wondering which art kit this is from, this is a new kit that I am working on called “Wildflower Sonata.” It’s available now in my store at the above links.  It’s a bright, sunny, fun, younger feeling kit that will be perfect for a lot of uses including card making, scrapbooking and crafting.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY:  Ps 56:3-4  when I am afraid, I will trust in you.   In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid.  What can mortal man do to me?  NIV

COMMENTS:  Isn’t it amazing how quickly our world can change and the prospects for peace or war?  When things in the world seem suddenly out of control, it is easy to become afraid.  I love this verse because the psalmist doesn’t say “When I am afraid you lecture me.”  Nor does he say, “God only rescues me when I am not afraid.”   It also lets me know that faith isn’t an absence of fear, but it is turning to God when I am afraid.

In an every-changing world it is important to remember that nothing comes as a surprise to the Lord.  When we rest in Him, He will be with us and see us through.

PRAYER:  Lord, this week the world suddenly changed and it was easy for fear and uncertainty to threaten to overwhelm me.  I admit that at times like this, I am afraid of the future and what it will hold.  Help me to overcome my fear by running into your arms.  When I am afraid, show me ways to actively trust you.  Teach me to praise you and remind myself of everything that your word says about you!  Thank you Lord for your protection.  I rest in your power and your love.  AMEN
