It is all about Family...

The most important thing in this world is our Families, and i want to stand with Joshua!

Joshua 24:15
and if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell, but
as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!

Regardless of what other people may think, serving and following God really is the only way to live a fulfilling, victorious life!
Do not let anyone steal from you what Jesus died to give you - freedom - freedom to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit for you as an individual! - Joyce Meyer

Oh, my heart just overflows with love and gratitude for my family, if living this life is like a writing a song, my family is the melody to already perfect words of love!

Please remember every day to pray for your Family, i do feel that it is the most vulnerable place in every person's life, and we need to trust in the Lord to protect us! This third kit that i've designed is my visible prayer to God to protect and bless my Family!

I found your blog thru Jody Ferlaak's. I am always so excited to see South Africa in anything! I grew up there. My parents were missionaries for 15 years and I spent most of my life in beautiful S.A. I have been back in Michigan for the last 15 years and have not been "home" since. Still miss it everyday. We lived in Scottburgh on the South Coast and also up near Jo'burg when I was very young. I feel very blessed to have grown up in a loving christian home with parents who were passionate about God and lost people. You have a great blog! Take care,
Becky Postma

Hi Karin,

Beautiful- a reminder to me to cherish my family and to continue to pray blessings over them daily. Somehow it's the first thing to fall off the list when things are too hectic- when it should be priority no 1!

Thanks for a gentle reminder- May the Lord bless you and your family!
love Adele.

It's amazing how the same things are spoken about... family. So important to look after, so important to care for, so important to pray for them.
Thank you for sharing

P.S. have you been receiving my emails?

Okay first off, I think you figured out I'm a Christian as well, so I will just say that I agree with all that was said and it's totally based on God's word... Now... onto the scrapbooking... O H M Y G O S H.
Girl you are simply amazing, God has blessed you with the ability to create the most gorgeous art that totally inspires me and I'm sure all around you, you just blend and make this gorgeous layout and the way you crop your photos... only the best details are left.
