Marbles Kit and a Freebie  

Marbles has two of the most stunning 12" clusters ever and 2 frames 10" & 9.3" along with 10 loose marbles $4.99 at my PayPal store. Click image to enlarge. Click Buy It Now button below the preview to purchase. Today I'm giving you a piece of the kit so you can see how extraordinary they are!

Here's a hint for adding shadows - since many of the marbles are beautifully transparent, the shadow will show through making them muddy looking. Solution - create layers so the shadow is on a separate layer then select the marbles and delete this selection from the shadow layer. Now the marble is clear again and the shadow shows where it should be! Don't forget to lock those two layers together! Here's a LO I did with the cluster:

Noah's Ark by Lynette's Photo Art  

Even those of us who know that the Bible is God's word and every bit of it is true (and not fairytales), tend to think of Noah's Ark as a small child's story, but it is anything BUT! That story was 100% about people kicking God out of their lives, out of their country's beliefs, no longer loving and serving Him. They became so evil that God said that "every intention of their hearts was evil only always"! Wow! Sounds a lot like our world today! He was sorry He had made man at all and decided to wipe them from the face of this earth and start over.

The story shows clearly that when we love and serve the Most High God, He protects and provides for us in His love. It also shows that there is utter destruction waiting for those who do not love Him and obey Him. Today, that destruction may not come immediately, but it is surely coming if they don't repent and turn to Him with their whole hearts and stay faithful until death. He promised not to destroy the earth with a flood again, but next time it will be FIRE and then every one who ever lived will face His final Judgment! Heed the message of Noah's Ark while there is yet time!

  • "The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:8-10
Today I'm giving you these elements I painted to illustrate the story of Noah's Ark to my class. Even if you don't need them for that purpose, the birds are quite lovely and you should be able to use them. (Remember - personal and Christian church use only without purchasing a commercial use license for them). Enjoy!

Sweetly Embossed Stationery Kit; Add On and a Freebie  

"'I consider everything a loss compared to...knowing Christ...' " Philippians 3:8 NIV

While John was a prisoner on the Isle of Patmos, far from his loved ones and surrounded by the cries of abused captives, he had a vision of Jesus. He writes, '...When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead...' (Revelation 1:17 NKJV) Incredible revelation in the midst of confinement, chaos and pain; that's how it works! The difficult circumstances you're going through right now can actually clear your perceptions, cause you to seek God as never before, and find answers for your life. John's predicament proves that negative experiences don't hide the Lord; they reveal Him. Instead of destroying you, Satan's attack can actually develop you. Yes, it stresses you, but it also stretches you spiritually. In Hebrews chapter 11 we see two things: the deeds of their faith and the depth of their faith. Where did God prove His faithfulness to Daniel? In the lions' den. Where did the Lord reveal Himself to the three Hebrew children? In a fire heated seven times over. There's a place in God where fiery trials consume everything except your desire to know Him. Though that place may sometimes escape your grasp, never let it escape your gaze. It was Paul's all-consuming goal: 'I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ.' (Philippians 3:8 NIV) There it is: no reservations, no retreat, and no regrets; just a desire to know God intimately and a commitment to 'go all the way with him'. Let that be your heart's desire today!

This message was taken from Soulfood Bible Readings as shared by Keryn. Thanks again Keryn!

Circle of Trust Button by Lynette's Photo Art  

NOTE: Thanks to Shayna telling me there was a problem with the Ribbon Cupcake link, I've re-uploaded it and there is now a new link on yesterday's post for it. Sorry, but it's not a perfect world!

Can you be trusted by the people in your life?

Trust is absolutely crucial for a good relationship with anyone at all. Our Lord told us that our "yes" should be "yes" and our "no" should be "no". We aren't to swear an oath to someone so they know we'll keep that word. Our very life of always keeping our word is the testimony necessary to show others in our life that they can trust and believe us.

  • "But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes' or 'No, no'; anything beyond these is of evil."
    Matthew 5:36-38
We are to keep our word so that people can trust us. This becomes even more important for those who would share the Gospel of Salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. We must live lives that reflect the virtuous life He lived so that our testimony will hold weight and others can believe us and be saved.

Here's your gift for today - enjoy and make sure this can never refer to YOU!

FeltRibbonFlowers10_by_LynettesPhotoArt  

An interesting point was made in my Bible class. Whether in training exercises or real life, people will dodge bullets if it's the only hope of survival, but it is exceedingly rare that one will run through fire, even if it's the only path possible to survival. Of course I'm not talking about firemen with protective covering, but even with all that, they have my absolute respect.

The point was made that we just gloss over the many descriptions of eternal hell where everyone who has not repented of their sins, asked Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, to be their Savior, been immersed in water baptism and lived faithfully until death will spend eternity without possibility of leaving. Think about fire. How long can you hold your finger "over" a small flame? And that's not even "in" the fire.

  • "If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:15
  • "If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, [where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.] If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than, having your two feet, to be cast into hell, [where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.] If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED." Mark 9:43-48
Remember the rich man and Lazarus?
  • "In Hades he (the rich man) lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.'" Luke 16:23,24
Can you imagine being in such unending torment that a single drop of water would be a relief? Our own dear Savior gave us this parable to give us insight that we might be wise and make a good decision and be faithful to it till death.

Note the rich man's reaction - he longed to keep those he loved from coming there. Your loved ones who have passed on don't want you to go there either, whether they have an eternal home in heaven or in hell.
  • "Between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.'

    "And he said, 'Then I beg you, father, that you send him (Lazarus) to my father's house--for I have five brothers--in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.'" Luke 16:26-28

Let us be wise and really consider these things while we are still here and can change our eternal destination. There is no more pressing issue in your life at this moment. Be wise. If I can help, e-mail me at lynette@lynettesphotoart.com.

  • "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ' You good-for-nothing,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell." Matthew 5:22

My TV runs ads all day long from lawyers wanting us to use them to sue other people for "accidents". The hook is literally, "Will you go for the MOST MONEY for me? YES!!!" This message runs every few minutes with several passionate variations, always for the "most money".

This is appealing to the sin of greed. Unashamed, open greed. Sin.

Wanting what is "fair" is fine. Wanting "the MOST possible" is greed. An "accident" is just that, an accident, and they happen to all of us. When you have an accident, do you want others to view it as an opportunity to get rich? Jesus taught us to treat others as we want to be treated.

Another thing to think of is the results of enormous court settlements on normal people who didn't necessarily do anything wrong, just had an accident. Yes, many times insurance pays, but only to the policy limits. People sometimes loose their homes and all they have. Who do you know that has hundreds of thousands of dollars? What happens to them and their families when they are ordered to pay these sums? Again, a "fair" settlement for the specific situation is fine. But do think of the life destroying consequences for people and their families when huge settlements are decreed for things that weren't actually their fault, just an accident. They may even be brothers and sisters in Christ whom we will one day meet in eternity. Will we have destroyed their lives here out of the sin of greed? The Bible even tells us that we are NOT to go to court with brethren over anything, but rather to let the church leadership decide such things.

With such messages filling our minds continually, we would do well to remember that greed is indeed a SIN and that we are to be focused on storing up imperishable riches where thief cannot steal and moth cannot destroy - in heaven!

  • "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21

It might take me a moment to lay the groundwork today, so I hope you'll keep reading.

  • People think of God's Word as a list of things you can't do that will keep you from many happy things in this life and because of this belief, most never come to Him for salvation.
  • Switching directions here - hang on - The entertainment industry, books, movies, TV, everything offered to us for "entertainment", has one common theme. They believe that to get us to want their product, (and give them money), they must create story lines of constant drama, with deeply wrenching story lines that all intertwine with great human carnage.
  • They all do it the same way. Almost all entertainment has the one same theme. Only one. Whether comedy, drama or horror, they all have the same theme on the most basic level.
  • Ready? They break God's laws. That's it. Almost all entertainment is based on the results of breaking God's laws. The drama, the comedy, the horror, even the love stories are almost always nothing but tales of the results of breaking God's laws.
  • There should be a very powerful message to us from this. If almost all the grief portrayed in entertainment is a result of breaking God's laws, then by obeying them, we can have happy, fulfilled, almost trauma-free lives.
  • We see that His laws are for our good, because He loves us and wants us to have great lives here, not ones so tangled and choked with consequences and results of our sins that there is no way out.
Our loving Father has provided us with an instruction manual for a good life here and a fabulous life after this one - the Holy Bible. Let's read it, pray for God to guide us and help us obey Him that we might avoid all the horrid things that people all around us are going through!
