Bible Verse Thursday - Attitude of Gratitude

Hello! If you are looking for the Our Daily Bread designs' Blog Hop, please scroll down one post. You have until 8:00 EST on Thursday, March 18 to complete the hop. Good luck!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!!! First of all, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped to celebrate Our Daily Bread designs' 2nd Anniversary with us this are truly a blessing and make our efforts so worthwhile!!! Thanks to Kelley for being such a generous and loving boss, plus a very good friend!!! Thank you to Grace and Chris, our team coordinators who put in hours and hours to make sure things always run smoothly....thanks for answering a million questions each month!!! For all of you hoppers from yesterday, all those who participated in the challenges, and all of the blog candy winners.....stay tuned tomorrow for a recap of all the winners over at the ODBD blog. Congrats and thanks again!!!

Now that ODBD Anniversary week is coming to a close, it's time to get "back in the groove"'s Bible Verse Thursday over at Christian Paper Crafts. This week's theme is "Gratitude". So many times it is easy to grumble and complain about the things we don't have or maybe about doors that have been closed to us, but it's important to have gratitude and be thankful for all that we DO have, be thankful for unanswered prayers, be thankful for those closed doors. Our God is sovereign...He is in control....He knows what is best for us, even if we can't understand. Make a list today of all of your blessings (even unanswered prayers), focus on all of the things you are grateful for, KNOW that God gives you what is best for you and He gives you every thing you need. Having gratitude always leads to a happy heart....if you are grateful for everything you have, then there is no time to think about what you THINK is missing!!

Today's Challenge: Use your favorite verse about being grateful or thankful. Make a tag, scrapbook page, altered item, tag...any project you like. We can't wait to see your's very easy to load your projects to the CPC gallery!

For my card today, I have used two of ODBD's new anniversary releases, Scripture Collection 4 and Ironworks Borders, along with K & Co "Madeline" paper, May Arts satin ribbon tied with my Bow Easy, and Basic Grey Opaline Pearls. I have used Jen's Color Monday Challenge of green and brown, which is also the CAS challenge over at Splitcoast. The general layout is from the Splitcoast sketch this week, flipped on it's side. Julia's Ways to Use It challenge is to make a project for encouragement and send it to someone....I will be sending this to a good friend who is going through some tough times right now...hopefully this scripture will bring some peace to her. This week's Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge is about peace.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a very blessed day!!
