Faith Art Friday

Well, we had great intentions of posting a 
Faith Art tutorial every Friday, but I just couldn't make it happen. 
It was a lot in the summer, when I wasn't working, 
but it proved to be too much between working, 
and keeping my family clothed and fed.
(Why do they keep on insisting on these things???)
Melissa put it perfectly: 

Well Faith Art Friday has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start.  
Erin and I sure appreciate your patience and grace as we figure out 
how to be more consistent in our posting and keep our families fed 
and clothed at the same time (they just weren't willing to give that up for the cause, ha!).

And we so appreciate your patience as we figure this out together.

Melissa has prepared an epic post for you today right here
inspired by one of my favorite hymns: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.

For future Fridays:
Melissa has prepared a prompt for us every Friday (after this).
***Thank you, Melissa!!!***
(so much work!)

So you can come to our blogs or sign up for our newsletters 
to receive the prompt on Fridays.

THEN (the most important part)
share what you've created on our closed Facebook page.
(just ask to join & we'll confirm. super easy.)

Thanks again, for your patience as we figure out how to 
continue art journaling our faith in a sustainable way.
Thanks of coming here and being a part. 
I am so thankful for this community!

Sunday Scripture *Free* Printable

Today I have a little sneek peek, 
a free scripture printable for a little encouragement for you today.

I love this verse.
In all things. We give thanks.
In the good stuff and the hard stuff.
On Monday morning and Friday afternoon.
I love the certainty that we will give thanks.
No matter what.

He is still God and we will keep on giving thanks.

In the piles of laundry and dirty floors.

We will give thanks.
In the soccer games and days at the beach.
We will give thanks.
In the exhaustion and mundane of the every day.
We will give thanks.
When we don't understand what He is doing.
We will give thanks.
In all things.

Such a great reminder to me each morning as I start the day each day.

God is God and we will keep on giving him thanks. Together.
