SSCC #7 - Psalm 97:1

Happy Wednesday!

It's only noon here but already such a full day ~ I managed to squeeze in some time to meet a wonderful friend for coffee this morning - yay! We find out tomorrow is the new baby for my friend is a boy or girl! I am notorious for being wrong, lolol, and I get a girl vibe which means it's probably a boy! :) I also had to run across town to a planning committee meeting for upcoming events at dd14's school and a meeting tonight for another dd10's end of year luncheon. And bring a huge art center/painting station that we brought for a friend's son's birthday party to ds's school (since we can't take that mammoth thing to the play place on Saturday) and realized I didn't have enough wrapping paper ..... so what's a creative mind to do .... use Christmas paper! LOL! I turned it inside out and doodled on it - oh the shame! I haven't met too many 5 year old's that love the paper that much, so I'm hoping to be off the hook, tee hee!


Todays' card is for the SSCC Challenge #7 - the verse of the week is from Psalm 97:1 "The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the oceans be glad." Amen! So, my card reflects the earth rejoicing, with an apple tree that grows and bears fruit, beautiful blossoms and is a constant reminder of His goodness always around us. One of my favorite memories of childhood is walking through rows and rows of apple trees in Germany and reaching up to one of the trees in the orchard, picking a fresh apple from the tree, lying underneath is and hearing the wind rustle through the tree leaves. Such simple and beautiful moments in life! God is good - All the time! May today bring you many, many blessings!


TFL!
