Enjoy the Little Things

Hello!  Today I'd love to share with you some cards that I've made the last couple days.  
It's been awhile since I've been into the papers and it was fun. 

As this year is drawing to a close, I am thankful for all that the Lord  has blessed me with, including the crafty space where I can sit and create.  

As we head into a new year, I want to consider each new day...the little things.  

I know it's a time of year people are dreaming big, and have grand plans and intentions for the new year.  But let us think on the little things.  To give attention to the details of each thing we do. 

May we dig deep into the Word of God and think on these things throughout our days.  It doesn't have to be big or grand....but the important things often come through the process of the: 
little things.  

It's good to show little kindnesses as we go about our days.  
Even just a gentle smile or a thoughtful gesture.  

I was given this stamp by a sweet lady and I just love it!  

Sometimes I've fallen into the trap of thinking that being a true friend means being in continual contact with someone.  But no, real friends can spend time apart, and then just pick up where they left off.  They can enjoy time together when possible, share and pray for each other.

Then there is always a need for these quick special cards.  
The ones that can be used for many different occasions.  
For special days come in many different ways. 

I love to have these cards around as well...for the times when you just want to tell someone that they are special to you.  

For times when you know someone who is ready for something new.  

Another for just a special day: a birthday, or special occasion, or just because you may have been feeling bad/sick and are now on the mend.  A day when anything can be enjoyed.

It's good to have thank you to share.  For those that the Lord brings into your life to care for and bless you.  Don't think that those little moments of kindness that you do go un-noticed.  

Thank you for dropping by!  Praying that you have a wonderful day, and as we head into a new year.  Consider the little things.

Pretty cards, and a good "resolution" as 2018 comes along! :)

You have quite a talent for making these beautiful cards Jennifer. I enjoyed being reminded about giving thanks for our small blessings throughout the day. Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year!

Such beautiful cards!! You are SO right about true friendship. I have several friends that I talk to maybe once or twice a year and YET, it is like we just pick up where we left off. We all lead busy lives and it's a comfort to know there is no pressure to constantly stay in touch! Great reminder to focus on the little things and small blessings in the new year and any year. I'm not a 'resolution maker' so I like trying to just focus on areas of my life that need some work and work as the Lord directs. Happy New Year to you!
