Hi,
I don't know if it is too late to join in on this challenge. And I'm not sure if I have to use the sketches provided. If so, I'll just leave this for sharing. I am working on my dd's preschool album. She attends a Christian school, so some of the los are faith-based. TFL!

4/12 - Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

4/3 - Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27)

4/7 - For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. (Romans 14:17-19)

4/8 - Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. (2 Corinthians 13:11)

4/11 - Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1)

I went to the Christian bookstore last night & took advantage of one of their current springtime sales.

I picked up 5 books, including Jesus Calling by Sarah Young...btw - it's really good! But, the one I can't seem to put down is Becoming More Than A Good Bible Study Girl by Lysa TerKeurst, the author of Crave, which is another book I also have.

One of my 'faithbooking goals' is to not only read more, but to finish reading my books all the way through. I'm really bad about starting books, but not finishing them. Right now my goal is 5-7 books for the year...But ideally, I'd like to be completely 1 book a month, so more like 10-12.

Yea- I found you

I just finished reading Capture His Heart by Lysa TerKeurst. Awesome book. Now I'm doing a study/book reading along with Renee Swope on her site- A Confident Heart. Another awesome book- her web site is: http://reneeswope.com/ if you're interested. She & Lysa are both parts of Proverbs 31 Ministries - they are a group of women reaching out to women- they have a great team & daily devotionals, bible studies, etc- http://www.proverbs31.org/

I read on the way to work as I ride a commuter van. That gives me quality reading time- especially in the morning. Gotta love my Kindle for that- makes it easy to carry & pull out when opportunity presents itself.

My life these past 2 weeks has been utter turmoil- a nightmare roller coaster if you will complete with loops & twists. Basically my Army career in the NG is over medically. I am 11 months shy of reaching 15 years & thus qualify for a retirement when I turn 60 (because of the medical discharge). I've been mislead, told I can't, told I can, researched regs, told I can't again... My request is to be allowed to stay a member for 11 more months & complete correspondence courses & thus next March have the points and the time to be awarded 15 years service & thus eligible to draw retirement when I turn 60. I know other people have done this very thing- just not officially. I'm trying to do it right & am told I can't? Something is wrong with this picture.

I'm so frustrated with this- its hard to find the peace I know is there- I just want to sit in a corner & cry. That won't solve anything other than make my eyes red & my sinuses run tho. So peace I seek. I believe there are no such things as coincidence - you posting that for the theme is exactly what I needed. Thank you
