Monday meditation : Sweeter than Honey

Good afternoon ... I thought I would start a new segment on this blog...

To me "as a Christian" Meditation is about not emptying my mind but filling it with God's word. So each Monday (hopefully) I will be sharing something that I've been learning about God, his word etc and how it effects my life.

I hope you had a great weekend... I did... our church (Wild Street @ Five) had a weekend away on the weekend.... and whilst we didn't stay overnight (this weak gal needed to sleep in her own bed) we went during the days! It was fun to spend time with our brothers and sisters in Christ (We were reminded on the weekend how we are family - one in Christ Jesus ... through his death and resurrection we are united in Him. Because of Jesus.... We can call God our Father - how awesome is that!!!)

We were looking at "the Gender Agenda" - God's good design of men and women ... it was refreshing to be reminded of how God has created us and what he's created us for. Sometimes I can forget that we are part of something bigger. I was challenged to think outside my little world and to spend more time meditating on God's word - The Bible. It really is "sweeter than honey" :D

The campsite was lovely (same as last year) and Saturday was a gorgeous hot spring day... whilst not so great for allergies the blossom trees were looking BEAUTIFUL ... out in full bloom - I had to share the picture I instagrammed on here. There's a bit of a bee/ honey theme unintentionally  happening here as that tree was full of little bees!

I thought I would try and record some of the things I learnt/ was reminded of on the weekend in my Pink smash book... Still got a bit to do on it but here's what I've done so far. I think you might find me sharing a few more Smash pages here as this Pink book is set aside for some of my favourite/  inspiring bible verses.

Anyway thanks for stopping by,
I'll be back later in the week to share some Colouring/ Art/ Craft!

Danni's Birthday Flutterby hop

Today is the first of TWO Flutter By Wednesday blog hops to celebrate Danni's (the
owner/creator of FBW) birthday! Today we have the friends of Danni fluttering along to
share some amazing creations to inspire you!!


You should have fluttered here from the wonderful Kat if not--start at the
beginning of the hop at the Flutter By Wednesday Blog.

Be sure to leave comments at each stop that you flutter to as there are some surprises
hidden! You have until September 9th, 2013 at midnight CST to flutter along!

We hope that you’ll also join in this week’s challenge at Flutter By Wednesday which is
anything goes with a butterfly or fairy! A little butterfly told us that if the challenge gets
over 100 entries there will be a prize!!

Here’s my projects for today~~

I made this frame for a friend who recently had a baby girl. The image is Lily Rose... one of my Fairy digis (from Mad for Markers)and her sister would have felt left out if she didn't get to flutter along too.. so here's Charlotte Rose ...

 I've gone all out with flowers and layers ... WAY out of my comfort zone but fairies and butterflies and dragonflies need flowers don't you think! :D

OK I am going to give away a little candy on this post... BIRTHDAY hop surprise candy :) .. and I'm feeling extra generous too as it's my birthday tomorrow :) I will choose a random commentor to have this fairy rubber stamp set and a set of Copicendium magazines as well as 5 digi stamps from M4M.
I'll draw the winner Monday :D

Now you should hop on to Ruth  Don’t forget to flutter to the FBW Blog tomorrow for another hop full of more fluttery inspiration!!

PS ... If you want to pop back tomorrow... I just might have another chance for candy ;) as i do love presents :D
