Give Thanks in all Circumstance...

Give thanks to the Lord for He is Good and His love endures forever! 

Hello Lovely people!! 

It's been a minute since I posted last, but lots has happened in the past 3-4 months.  The biggest change is that my husband and I moved our little family to Florida from New Jersey (exciting I know!).   We took a leap of faith and trusted in the Lord and so far so good (will share more on the move in a later post)!  

Anyway, I wanted to share with you some art that I worked on with the kids during the month of November.  On Wednesdays during Bible study I had the kids of the church do several art projects focus on giving thanks.  I wanted to make sure they got the message of being thankful at all time and appreciating and being grateful for the good times and even the bad times.  Of course I get funny looks when I include being thankful when times are tough, but I assured them that those are usually the moments when you learn to trust God and rely on Him.  So as 1 Thessalonians 5:18 states "give thanks to the Lord in all circumstance;"  

Here are some pictures of the kids in the process of making a mixed media piece, they had so much fun.  


 Materials: white crayon (as a resist), water color crayons, stenciling, stamping on water color 140lb coldpress paper



Here they are decopaging their little hearts out!! 


                                                     Adding some finishing touches, boarder and doodling




Super proud of the end results! 



I am extremely thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to share with you and I hope you enjoy my post and I hope to post more often in the coming year.  

Blessing to you all and remember always give thanks with a Grateful Heart!!
