Delighted

Lookie here...my own sweet Raggedy Annie verse dollLea made with so much love in every stitch!  You can look at her other creations in her Etsy store here.  The verse is Psalm 37:4 and it says,
"Delight in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your Heart." 
To "delight" in the Lord is to take pleasure in the Lord.  When I do this the Lord changes my desires to conform with His will.  He changes my desires to match His will and His delights.  It's an awesome experience to find myself delighting in all things eternal, as opposed to earthly things, which have no eternal value.  But it's okay to enjoy the beauty and splendor the Lord does give me.  Such as this cute little Annie doll...she's there to remind me of keeping focused on my Jesus.  She also reminds me of friends and family---God's gifts to me!

More fun...  I won Tracy's  (my cup runneth over) drawing, here.  I'm excited to read what she'll be sending to me. You still have time to enter her final drawing, she's got a big surprise for the final giveaway.  I tell you, bloggers love to giveaway and to celebrate blog-anniversaries!  Loads of fun!

Also, regarding the blog where I go the idea to glue paper clips on the back of plates: I always try to include links to places I mention or refer.  I finally found the blog I had mentioned!  It was Diane of "In My Own Style".  The post about hanging plates, etc, is here.   Be sure to read her post of how to have some fashion fun on your refrigerator door!  So cute!

Having fun in March...rain, birthdays, flowers, fellowship, family, food and fun!
Blessings, Heidi

Something handmade especially for the recipient is always a specal treasure. That's how I feel about my Scrap for Joy sign that you made for me. I think of you every time I'm in my studio...and other times too.
Hope Spring is coming your way. It has been raining here for 5 days and I think we're due for some sun soon.
I poked around Diane's blog-she sure is a handy lady.
Take care my firend!

Aha! So you're the one who bought that sweet little treasure. I saw her in Lea's shop and then saw that she was sold. I knew it would be every bit as precious in person. She is so talented and definitely creates everything with care and LOVE. = )

Hoping your package has arrived and hope you are enjoying it! Thanks for sharing about my last giveaway!

Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Blessings,
Tracy

Thank you for this post. You are always so encouraging. I've been struggling lately. Certainly not very "delighted." I'm trying to remind myself that He is caring for me even when circumstances aren't to my liking.
