February 1st Blog Prompt!

I have lots of photos that I use over and over! It just seems that these are some of the best photos and they go with EVERYTHING! My favorite people to scrap are my Grandson, My Grand-Daughter and my Husband. I did scrap quite a few pics of my Cat, Spider this past year and my mother.

I want to be able, in 2008, to scrap more of these same favorites but I would like to do it with different photos....Guess I had better start taking pictures! I also would like to scrap some more pages of my Dad. He was a very special person in my life and still influences allot of the things that I do. This year, I also want to start a "Book of Us" about me and my DH. This year we will celebrate 30 years of marriage and I think there is allot that needs to be said there.

Another project that I have planned, is a heritage album of all of my family and my husbands.
The story is rather long, but even though I was born and raised in a different part of the country, my husband family and my mothers family lived very close together and knew each other as children and teenagers. They even went to the same schools. Lots of history!

So...Lets get scrappin' !!

Scrapping Goals!!!

Everyone always talks about setting goals and how you should set realistic goals in order to achieve them. Well, my blog prompt for this week is about setting goals. And so...I have set my scrapbooking goal for the year 2008...that is to say, how many pages do I plan to scrap during the year. I have set my goal at 180 pages for the year, which breaks down to about 15 per month. As of right now, I am right on target! One more day left in this month, and I have two mre to go to make my goal! WHOOHOOO!

Thoughts for today - January 7, 2008

Have you ever wondered why we need to rest? What if we went on and on without ever sleeping, without ever lying down to rest? Would we eventually just fall over? Would we age dramatically faster from constant stress and worry? Imagine what it would be like if you had to tend your children 24 hours a day, non stop, or work, clean and cook 24 hours a day. WHEW!!! I am not sure that I want to even try!

Now look at the times your children are asleep in bed and you have a little quiet time before you turn in for the night. Have you ever just listened to the night? Crickets chirping, the sound of a slight breeze rustling throught the trees, or even, on a quiet night, no sound at all? Do your worries of the day seem to fade during this time? They often do for me.

Everyday that the sun goes down, it goes down on the problems and the mistakes that we may have made that day. Something WONDERFUL happens while we sleep----God gives us rest. We are revitalized to face a brand new day, physically, mentally and emotionally. Sure, we may wake with the same problems that the sun left behind the day before, but today, after rest and sleep, we can face them again and think, "I can face this again today and solve this problem".

God promises to renew our strength when we rest in Him. Some do not realize how important the morning is. "This is the day the Lord made; I will rejoice and be glad in it." As soon as you awake, look in the mirror and tell yourself, "Today is going to be a good day because Jesus loves me."

Have a WONDERFUL day!
