Louise’s Tag Tuesday is a fun weekly challenge. Louise has asked a guest artist, Pam, to help with the challenge. This week, we were asked to create a background for a tag.
So, I used a graphic from Shabby Cottage Studio (as some of you know, I am their Artist in Residence.) Then, I stamped it and inked the edges. So, this is not a completed tag--It is merely the background for one. (I don’t know about you, but it looks done to me!) It is pictured here resting in American moss.
But, this tag brought to mind that no matter what is going on in our lives, sometimes we are not quite aware that God is in the background helping us all along our way...What a comforting thought. So, as you look at this little creation, I hope that you will remember that you’re not alone and always have someone on your side....someone who's always in the background cheering you on through life.

If you have ever had a dream and wondered if it could come true, I can tell you that you have THE biggest fan you could possibly imagine--and that is God.... He is there cheering you on even if you can't hear Him....He is there in your corner even if you feel alone...and He is there making all those dreams possible--Pray and see how He helps your dreams take shape. Keep doing what you're doing and you will be amazed at what doors open up...
Just remember that through prayer, your dreams are carried on the wings of angels directly to a Heavenly Father who loves you...In the past few months, I have seen His hand in everything from surgeries working out to packages getting delivered to their recipients when it appeared all hope was lost...
I have felt Him lift me up higher than my own vision could see--because through Him all things are possible. What began as a prayer blog seems to have become a testimony...how wondrous!
Oops! I think this pic is too dark to see that the metal piece on this mixed media piece I created says "Believe!"

A long time ago, someone told me that if I look at a crescent moon, it looks like God's thumbnail....What a beautiful thought, don't you think?
I hope that you will see God's hand in everything you do today and know that He is with you. A simple prayer of "Lord, please watch over me and mine" could be powerful and make all the difference in your day.

Today my prayer for all of you is to have a beautiful day filled
I put up this picture of the sky outside my house to remind you to
"look up" to where our answers come from...God sees us all and
hears our prayers...
It is as if the sky is one giant prayer shawl and He has
us wrapped in His care.
Wishing you all a very blessed day!

I know it's been a long week, but I had no idea that when I went to post on this blog for my "Weekend Question," I did the whole post on my Whimsical Musings blog instead...lol So, I guess that maybe people there will answer my weekend question too! How funny is that? Well, without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to not one, but 2 guest artists--Roselle and Nancy. (Read further and you'll understand why.)
My friend Roselle from Seaside Rose Creations is a wonderful artist and I wanted to share a picture of her precious, hand-painted Christmas bulbs--they’re available in her Etsy shop. Aren’t they just the sweetest treasures?
They got me to thinking about something...which brings me to my question for you for this week--What is one of the sweetest things that someone has ever done for you? (And I hope it will be something that caught you by surprise--something you weren’t expecting.)
Roselle actually surprised me with the sweetest package that arrived a few weeks ago...It was an envelope filled to the brim with “artist’s” treasures...vintage paper, book pages, ribbon, lace--you name it, it was in there! Sometimes, life has the nicest way of smiling at us through friends and family.
And right as I was in the midst of preparing this message, a gift arrived from my friend Nancy from The Trinket Collector--I was so surprised! She and her husband had been to Atlantic City to celebrate their wedding anniversary and she sent me Salt Water Taffy from there AND also, amazing vintage postcards--I couldn’t believe my eyes!
Every day is, indeed, a special package that we open--ours to do with what we choose...
Unwrapping gifts of caring from friends is such a delight and I can’t begin to express how
they warmed my heart.
I am linking this up to Spiritual Sundays!
I don't usually ask people to visit my Whimsical Musings blog, but I have an amazing story to tell you...I hope you'll go over and read it! It would mean a great deal to me to share my story with you!
