Delays are not refusals; many a prayer is registered, and underneath it the words: "My time is not yet come." God has a set time as well as a set purpose, and He who orders the bounds of our habitation orders also the time of our deliverance. -- Selected
This was in my inbox this morning from Streams in the Dessert. I thought it appropriate considering what I'm going through with my home. I admit getting discouraged with what seems like God isn't listening or doesn't care--but my head and knowledge knows that's not true! It's God saying, "My time is not yet come." If I can cling to His promises by faith without seeing evidence, then His is glorified.
These pictures were taken of Hannah after a "Daughters of the King" banquet held at my mom's church. I took some inside pictures, but these outside ones are so much better! The only thing I regret about this batch of pictures is that the sun was SO bright and straight above us, that it created a lot of shadows on the girls' faces. The template for this layout was a freebie from Designer Digitals, as well as the green paper bow (not a freebie). The other elements--sunshine, Asian disc, and floral brush stamp--were freebies from Scrap Girls. The freebies from Scrap Girls come in the form of a daily newsletter in my inbox every morning. I really appreciate the newsletter--it's motivating and inspiring, as well as the freebie at the end of the letter. This template is an example of "color-blocking", (I think), and I think I kinda like it. Too blocky for use all the time, but the general idea is clean and uncluttered.
