These are the sweetest stickers...YES stickers! I can't believe I purchased them either, but they're so cute and dimensional. I found these on clearance in Target (I only shop the clearance isles in Target:).
For this card I layered two of the stickers and I love the result.
Everytime I look at this stamp I love it more and more. I'm actually going to purchase another one for back up, I love it that much..so whimsical.
One of the things I'm proud of...
PATIENCE: Capacity for waiting -The ability to endure waiting, delay, or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset, or to persevere calmly when faced with difficulties.
Romans 12:12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Proverbs 15:18 A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.
1 Thessalonians 5:14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
The past few days/weeks I've been most proud of the changes I've seen in myself...my patience/tolerance for people and the things they do is growing. I must honestly say, the verse from 1 Thessalonians made me just go UGH!!! WHY!!! Do I really have to be patient with EVERYONE?? REALLY?? God said YES...I'm patient with you. At that moment there was more calmness within.
I've never been one that was quick to anger, it took A LOT to anger me and then the only way you'd know I was angry is because my feelings show through my body language/face (as I've been told). I'm by no means phony, never have been, never will be, so it's hard for me to hide my feelings from people. But as I've gotten older, my tolerance for foolishness and busybodies had become slim to NONE. Like, I'll just walk off from ignorance or just disengage myself from the conversation. I often "just didn't feel like" being the one to correct the mess someone may have been spewing to the crowd, basically just thinking, they'll never change..so I'd just move on. But how can I say I walk in love but I have no patience for mankind? Now, don't get me wrong, I will dismiss mess in a heartbeat especially when it's intentional hurt someone is trying to invoke. I've had a person get upset with me because when I realized she was trying to speak ill of someone (mess) I very politely told her I didn't want to hear it. She was angry true, but I did give her the benefit of the doubt and explained myself..I don't want to hear mess PERIOD. Your ears and eyes are a funnel to your heart, if you take in enough of that mess you WILL become it. Which in turn, you will begin to speak it and become it..."Birds of a feather"
Now that's just one senerio of "stuff" I've not had the patience for. Life presents many instances where your patience may be tried. I'm just so very happy that I've noticed that my patience/tolerance for "stuff" is growing. I don't feel my heart racing when I'm encountered by "stuff". I don't get that UGHHH feeling when I'm encounted by "stuff"and become disconnected.
I'm so happy with my growth and I pray that I continue on this path of becoming a better me.
