Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Sawyer Pages

I took these pictures from Sawyer's daddy's facebook page!  Thanks for sharing, Terry!  :D  It is sad for me to think about Sawyer being a year old soon and I've probably only seen him a handful of times.  That is the only problem of being married to a preacher......you never know for sure how long you will live where you live.  And we keep getting further and further away from the family.  But, I'm happy in His service!  I cannot let myself dwell on being away from all of you.  Satan loves it when I have pity parties!  He's usually the one giving the party!  So, I try not to attend!  :D  Love you all!

I'm just a LITTLE perturbed today!!!  Why is it that Google has to mess with stuff!  My password was just FINE until yesterday!  All of a sudden, I cannot sign in!  Password not recognized!  So after SEVERAL tries I forgot about posting anything yesterday and decided I'd try again today.  Maybe it just needed some rest and in the morning it would be back to it's normal self!  NOT!  I had to go through the process of changing my password.............again!  Except this time google would NOT accept my usual password and it would not accept anything I tried to create.........until I had a combination of the following................symbol, capital letter, number.................grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  I HATE having to have a list of passwords because there is no way on earth you can remember the STUPID things!  DOUBLE GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

OK, now that I have that out of my system.................I need to go and look up the origin to the word "shenanigans" and see if the "she" in the front of the word has some significance!  I sure hope google doesn't play any more "SHENANIGANS" while I'm gone!

CD Cover

I've been trying to clean off my desk a little bit today and get things done on my TO DO list.  As I look around on my desk, however, I think my TO DO list got more attention than my desk!  :D  That's OK, though!

I made some DVDs of the pictures I took while in WV last month to send to the great grandparents and a few others, and I made a cover for it that I wanted to share with you.  I made it using one of my new kits, "Abigail."  I think it turned out pretty cute.  What do you think?

What'cha Doin?

Not much!  Been workin' in the yard some.  Playin' with my new camera some.  But no digital scrapbooking at all lately!

New camera?  Yes!  I finally saved up enough money between birthday, Christmas, cleaning church to get a new camera!  It is like my last one only better!  Instead of 10X zoom, I have 16X zoom.  Instead of 7MP quality, I have 14.1MP quality!  I'm LOVIN' the ZOOM!!!  I've got to get ready to fix supper soon, but hopefully tonight I can play with some of my closeups and put them in some scrapbook pages!

Thanks to all who contributed to my camera fund!  Next savings pot is for Tim and I to go on a trip AWAY for a couple of days!

Blog Freebie

I don't think those of you who read this blog read my designing blog.  So, I wanted to share this with you.  But first, I'll share a page I did of Abigail for a Speed Scrap challenge on Tuesday at Faith Sisters.  Precepts and Promises provided the template for the challenge.  And I used my kit, Abigail to make the page.

 Now for my designing blog news..................

Well, I have a GREAT surprise for all of you!  And the best part is that you don't have to do anything to earn it!  Keep reading...............

I want to remind you of the celebration I have going on this month for my 35th wedding anniversary...........I'm running 35% off my store through the entire month of May!  And, since May 8th is the day of my anniversary, I'll be running a one-day-only special sale on that day.  Click on the preview to go to my store and keep reading............

I still have not heard from "JEANNE" from the contest I held on Monday for a chance to win my newest kit, "Abigail."  If you are out there, Jeanne, please send an e-mail to me at todays_scrap@yahoo.com.  I need to send you the download link!

I just uploaded a kit for mom, just in time for Mother's Day!  Click on the preview to go to the product in the store.  It will be 35% off this entire month, too.

And now for the freebie that you've patiently waited for!  I created an add-on to "For There's No Other" especially for celebrating my 35th anniversary.  Just click on the preview.  It will be free until I can think of some other activity for celebrating my 35th anniversary!

Thanks for stopping by Today!  Have a blessed day!  If you have any ideas or fun things to do on blogs, leave me a comment!  I'd love to hear from you!

"Abigail" kit

I thought you would enjoy this.  I was so inspired with some of Abigail's baby clothes that I made a kit with her name and using some of her clothes for inspiration in the elements.  Girls clothes are sooooooooo cute!  It turned out rather cute, if I do say so myself!  :D

And, Tim and I will be married 35 years come May 8th, (which happens to be Mother's Day, too - I'm still saving for a camera........hint, hint!  ;-) and I am celebrating by putting my store on sale - 35% off.  And I want to do lots of fun things on my designing blog to celebrate the event, too!  If those of you who read my blog have any ideas, let me know!

The first thing I'm trying is giving away my new "Abigail" kit to someone who posts a comment.  If you click on the preview of the kit, it will take you to the post on my designing blog.

Scroll further to see a couple of pages I've done using this kit.  I did them for the challenges I host at Faith Sisters.  If you click on them, it will take you to the forum threads.

This is my desktop screen for May, done for the "Desktop Calendar" challenge.

This is a page I did for the "Theme-a-ma-jig" challenge.  The template to make the page is free and the prize for doing a page is a set of 2 quick pages.
