Tickled Pink!

Hi!  Sorry for not being here for a while, but after a long summer off work (school) with lots of free time to blog I am now back to work and haven't as much spare time.  So I'm only getting around now to posting after three weeks ; )
Anyway, this little card was made for a guy in work and his wife who had a little baby girl recently.  I hope it fits into the following challenges:

This little washing line stamp is from Unity Stamps and the sentiments are both Papertrey Ink.  These papers are from My Mind's Eye - Fine and Dandy, Tickled Pink.

So now, on to the post I promised three weeks ago for a study in the beautiful book of Psalms.

PSALM 1: to be a child of God means to have loads of blessings bestowed on us every day.  In these verses we some of the blessings we have as Christians.
  1. We are indeed 'blessed' (happy)
  2. Our joy should be in studying, following and living out God's word
  3. We are fruitful in that we can do a work for Him and help to bring peace and encouragement to the lives of other people too
  4. Prosperous - this doesn't necessarily mean by the world's standards (ie lots of money and property); rather, we have riches that the world couldn't even comprehend - we have peace in our hearts, we have a constant joy in knowing that we have a home in heaven and knowing that whatever difficulty or trial comes our way, we can NEVER be separated from the love and salvation of God
  5. Wherever we go or whatever we do, the Lord can see us and is with us; He knows the path that we have just taken and, better still, He knows the path ahead of us, even when we don't know it.
The contrast here is between those who are saved and those who aren't.  The Christian should ask him/herself where and when they are happiest and most comfortable - when in the company of the unsaved or when they are with God's own people, our brothers and sisters in Christ?  If we are happier being with the unsaved we need to ask ourselves why and consider the true state of our hearts before God.
Thanks for being here and may the Lord bless you today!
