"Anxiety weighs a heart down, but a cheerful word lifts it up." Proverbs 12:25

Everything...


Psalm 150 is my absolute favorite Psalm.
I use it when I feel happy.
I use it when I feel sad.

The Psalm basically tells us to
praise the Lord every way possible and
all of the time... just praise Him.

Many people praise God in the good times
but find it difficult to do so in the tough times.

I'm just like anyone else.
This is why I enjoy turning to this
particular Psalm.
I can read it straight from the Scriptures and
simply PRAISE the LORD.


Psalm 150

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty heavens!
Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
Praise Him with the sound of trumpets;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
Praise Him with tambourine and dancing;
Praise Him with guitar and flute!
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!


It is my prayer today that each person
who visits Always Stampin'
will have many reasons to
praise the Lord
with joy filled hearts!

Have a great day!

A Digi Blessing for You Today...


One of my favorite offerings from
MY DIGITAL STUDIO
is making
MEMORY ALBUMS...
whether it's page by page for my own albums
or using a digital book format
offered by Stampin' Up!.
Memory Keeping is favorite of mine.

However, MDS is SO wonderful
that you can do WAY more than just scrapbooking.
I... LOVE... THAT!!!

This is an example of a
GREETING CARD
created with MDS
for a friend of mine going through
some rather stressful times.

As you can see, the photo above would be
the FRONT of the card.

The photo below would be the
INSIDE LEFT PANEL.


The next photo is the
INSIDE RIGHT PANEL.

I made this panel blank
so that I can write her my very own
little "pep talk."


And finally the backside of the card
has a super cute little "love note" reference.
Adorbs, right?!


Now I can either print it at home...
(which is what I often do if I am in a hurry)
or send it to a local store...
(which is great because they offer a nice price)
OR I can have it printed by Stampin' Up!
(which is the route I normally prefer because the
paper and the printing are exceptional.)

I also enjoy creating with
MY DIGITAL STUDIO
and sending my notes via EMAIL.
Why not?!
E-CARDS are the big thing right now!

Want to know more about how to create with
MY DIGITAL STUDIO?
Let's get together for some yummy at
Coffee Crossing in New Albany
and I will share everything I know!

Nearly everything used to created this greeting card came from the "Dropping You a Line" Designer Kit. You will LOVE this kit! It has absolutely everything but the kitchen sink! ;)

Scripture Sunday with MDS


If you follow and read my blog,
you know I REALLY enjoy creating
"word photos" with
MY DIGITAL STUDIO.

One of the things I enjoy most about
social media or the internet in general is
access to all kinds of encouragement.

Many times, my life has been touched
(and even changed)
by something I have seen or read online.
Therefore, I like to "pay it forward" and
offer the same sort of inspiration.

But often, word photos are copyright and
we are unable to "share" them
without granted permission.
That's why I turn to MDS to create my own!
And it's just down-right FUN!!!

In creating this particular "word photo,"
I studied the blessing of
FORGIVENESS
(and the ability to deal with conflict.)
Here is what I discovered...

Negative responses (to conflict)
are often brought on by three reasons...

-past hurts- causes a person to be
emotionally insecure and unable to handle criticism
-perfectionism- keeps a person from
reaching his/her own high standards
-pride- makes it difficult
to admit wrong or ask for forgiveness

The perfect Example of how to forgive
is found in Luke 23:34...
"Father, forgive them;
for they do not know what they are doing."

If this helps you in any way,
then YOU have blessed me.
Thank you.

Thank you also for visiting today.
It is my prayer
that you have a very creative (conflict free) day!
