Faith Is...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is perhaps unbelievably the first I've created with the Detailed Florals thinlits from Stampin' Up!  The reason why I chose the sentiment from Artistically Asian is that as the new year begins, or indeed at any time, none of us truly know what He has planned for us.

That said, I do know that for the last several months and for the foreseeable future, His plan for me is to primarily focus on my writing and withdraw a little from this blog.  Some of you who have been with me for a while might recall that I said something similar last year, and you'd be right!  I did focus on writing for much of last year too, and for the latter part of the year had posts scheduled on here at least 3 months in advance!

I'm not that organized this year.  Yet.  Although I have had some cards ready for a while, this post is actually only being scheduled on Thursday afternoon - and I will try and get a bunch written and scheduled after this one.

It will mean that my shoddy commenting will continue a little as my time really is limited while I try and finish writing the book that I've been working on since mid October (hence all the scheduling).  Grin.  I will, of course, comment on your latest post if you're willing to stick with me and leave a comment here?

Today's card is the last I'm sharing this year.  Indeed, after 101 others, this is my last post for 2016.  For such a momentous occasion, I've chosen to share a design that if time allowed, I'd create for each and every one of you, my precious readers and friends...


Thank you is not enough to express my gratitude for your support.  I love each of you more than you know.  And, as the card says...

Be filled with
WONDER
Be touched by
PEACE
Believe in the
MIRACLE
