Thankful Thursday #15



I am thankful for so many things everyday.


     Need a spiritual gift for a birthday or Christmas?

I don't think I really realize just how fortunate I am to live in a country where I can express my religious beliefs.  Although it can be hard here at times and sometimes it seems that freedom is narrowing, I know I can freely be a Christian.

The whole being of this blog and the title goes back to my memories of childhood, church, and family.

I love new Christian music.  I have my 3rd Casting Crowns CD in my car.  I lost the first two, moving them around from car to car and didn't hesitate replacing it a third time.

As much as I love new music, there is just something about the old, traditional church songs.

I had an idea to create my own charms.  What I originally had on my mind is not what I ended up with, but I love it even more!  I just prayed about it and went with it.  That's what I am supposed to do all the time, but Worry and Control take over too many times.

I worked with the same company who did the Friendship charms I posted about.  These charms are my artwork.  I wanted something whimsical and fun, but a positive message.

I have so many wonderful memories of church and the traditional hymns are just so comforting to the soul. I hope and pray I am successful with these, but if they just give someone a great feeling or spark a sweet memory I will be happy!

I am making things for my Etsy store and getting ready for a festival this Saturday, but I couldn't wait to post my charms!  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  I have more in the works and would love the feedback!

I love the blacked out look, but the silver shows the details in the artwork.
