Rejoice In The Lord Always

I took out my Bamboo Tablet today for the first time in months and decided to play around a little bit. This is the outcome of my playing around with the photoshop program and using some of my digital scrapbooking files.

The other night I was feeling really sick, finding it difficult to breathe and I couldn't sleep even though I knew and my hubbub knew that I really needed to rest. I asked him to read to me and I shut off my night lamp and snuggled into his arms (as I am not contagious anymore)... and he began to read.

Philippians 4...
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus....
whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

I was thinking about these verses and then I started thinking about the world and how people are today... it doesn't seem to me that the above things (true, noble, right, pure...) are on a lot of peoples minds these days. It takes work when we are in the world to remain pure-of-heart. With so many worldly things pounding into our brains from tv, media, radio, other people... it is difficult to stay completely focused on what is good for others and for ourselves. That is why it is so refreshing to study the Word... to remind us to keep our thoughts and our lives pure and holy.

I hope you enjoy it ~ even though it is digital.
Happy Creating Everyone!

I think its interesting that I am using part of the same quote in Philp. 4 in my composition journal. Mine starts at "do not be anxious" and ends at "Jesus". I love how God moves in His people. I so glad that you are doing better.
