On Mother's Day I let go of the MUST HAVES!

Hello my dear friends,

How was your Sunday? Mine was delightful.
Started with 3 little ones saying HAPPY Mother's Day to me out loud!
A wonderful husband turned chef making me yummy breakfast.
A blessed service at church giving thanks for each and every blessing, holding on to His promises.
Time at home...yes. I am one happy Mama!
Oh...and the best! I went  to bed early! 

Hope your Mother's Day was refreshing and you spend time with those you love.

I received a beautiful handmade card by my friend and downline Maria Vega!
She melts my heart with her talent and the many ways she uses her stamps.

Bookmarks for Moms using my stash!
I set apart some time to make some small gifts for the Mamas in my church family.
I used some of my beautiful scraps of paper. Yes...all I need was strips of 2" and I found many.
Check out my creations below.
Is such a blessing to give something they will be able to use on their Bibles every day.
A reminder of His goodness!

The Stylish Stems and Special reason bundle are my favorite Occasions Catalog items.
Is retiring in 15 days!

You've Got This stamp set comes with NO coordinating thinlit
soooo, you know who cut all these by hand right!

I am delighted with this coordinating set: Rose Wonder stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits.
Precious and so many possibilities!

To make these simply cut Designer Seris Paper to 2" by 6"
Punch the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

MY GIFT TO ME: Let go of the must haves

In the past I expected gifts, flowers, service, whatever....even the perfect photo with the kids ON Mother's Day. Nothing out of the ordinary. But there was a problem.
Instead of having a grateful day, I would have resentful holidays.
If I didn't get THAT picture taken, or THAT specific gift, or THE heart would be blue.
But in the last years I have learned to be content, also that my TRUE JOY doesn't come from things, photos or flowers. My JOY COMES FROM THE LORD!

WHAT A FREEDOM indeed! Do you celebrate your days with simplicity? Do you have MUST HAVES in your life? The ones that if you don't get steal your joy. Be free today from expectations. Set your heart and expectation only on the Lord.

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and HE will give you the desires of your heart." 
Here a peak into my 2017 Mother's Day gifts.

My day ran as a normal Sunday, a day to fix my eyes on Jesus, refocusing on what matters.
Needless to say, I was blessed by those little extras that made me happy.
It is well with my soul. Jesus reigns. 

I am so thankful you stopped by today.
