Come and Sit

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

I choose to rejoice.  I choose joy...

There are waaaaaay too many things in this world that are not worthy of rejoicing or for us to be happy about.  But God doesn't say to rejoice only when we feel like it.  We do it because He says so and only by His Grace - we are empowered to make that choice.  Try it, you'll like it - lol!  Go ahead and smile.  Even if you don't feel like it.  When we smile, things change within us.  Even if for a brief moment, smiling lifts our spirits.

I hope my card brings a smile to your face today.  This is Hannah's Heart, a High Hopes cutie-pie from Paper RomanceI've used the sketch from Friday Sketchers

Lori said...

You know there's not much to say except how damn amazing your work is - OMG!
But I do have a question, do you use crop-o-dile to set your eyelets? because I'm telling you, I did a super zoom on your PF card and they are perfect. I always get a squished edge, I need help, since I just bought over 100 of them....lol
