Plans For You & a Bee Sting

This cute polka dot paper is My Minds Eye -- but here's what on my mind today. God has a plan for me and I'm so glad! Left to my own sweet self, I might not experience living out God's purpose for my life. His purpose is highly personalized. He has thought your life through. God thinks about you! Jeremiah 29:11 says that nothing in this life is haphazard.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

You & I have a little spin around this planet earth, and we must be extremely intentional about serving God. His purpose in each persons life is perfectly timed. You were assigned to this generation. After all the centuries have come and gone, the important thing is that we served Gods purpose in our own generation. I don't know about you, but my sweet self is all about clinging to this promise ... God has a plan man!

So ... I got stung by a bee while riding with Kevin on the motorcycle and that wasn't so fun, but my hero husband got the stinger out in 63 seconds. Thus, the cute little bee buzzing around on today's scripture card. There are SO many things I love about this card! My 86 year old momma crocheted the super cute flowers! If you "need" a few flowers and if you ask sweetly, I bet my sweet momma will indulge you. The stems (and stinging bee) are from My Cute Stamps {hint: get thee to the website, they are toooo cute to pass up). There is a row of crystal diamonds in the middle of each stem. I traced the bird from a chipboard piece, and the wing is a Hero Arts Paisley stamp. Entire card is stitched with a white inkessentials pen by Ranger. I love it when a plan comes together!
