A New Day

So here it is, a new day of a new week. A time to start fresh and be thankful for each and every moment God has given. It is not just Monday, it is a new day! Rejoice in the Lord always, again I will say rejoice! I am thankful for this new day! I have another day to do all those things that need to be done, another day to tell my family how much I love them, another day to make wrongs right, another day to live for the Lord! And so I will rejoice and I will be thankful for another breath. I hope this finds you thankful for another day! I hope you are rejoicing right where you are, in whatever circumstance you may be in. You have another day, Rejoice!

Last week was a difficult week. I couldn't scrap. All I could do, was go through each day, and let it take care of itself. I finally was able to scrap a little on Saturday and a little more yesterday. Whoo hoo, the light is shining through just a bit. I decided today was the day I should start blogging again. I will be doing a happy layout of my mom soon, the ideas are rolling around in my head and that is a good thing! In the meantime I wanted to post some pictures my dad took of me and my siblings while we where in Arizona. It was so good to be with them and I truly hope that we keep in touch more now than we have in the past! I am so proud of all of them!


My siblings and I.
All of us with our significant others.

All of us with my sister's kids.

I treasure these photos!! What a beautiful family we have!! I love you all tremendously!!

I was able to finish up a little card this weekend. Whoo hoo! I actually scrapped! This is for a class I am teaching next week for Keepsakes by Design.

Don't you just love Pink Paislee? I had a blast with my Cricut and my spooky fence punch from Martha Stewart. This, in all honesty, is my first attempt at making a card with clear acetate. I have to admit it was a blast! I love all the depth you can create when you use acetate!

I hope you all have a fantastic week and may this find you Rejoicing in the Lord.

Beautiful card, Kristii!
I'm so sorry it was a hard week but what precious time to have with family even though the circumstances were so sad.
I find myself thinking more and more lately, especially after Aleida's death, how precious each day is.
It's so eye opening.
