I have been doing our grandkids scrapbooks and really, really enjoying the creative time.  Starting from receiving the digital image, there are seven steps that take place before I actually start building a page, and each of those steps are so different and unique that they are actually like doing a separate project, so I just have not gotten bored doing these books! 


As strange as it seems, I have been doing scrapbooking for a few years now and did not yet have a plan for making our own.  I have spent a long time investigating the options and prayed about it many times.  Last night I finally needed to make a decision and so after SO long I choose the best plan that I felt we would be happy with in the long run.


When I went to bed I went to the Word to Ponder website to see if He had a Word for me and the first title that popped up was, I WILL BLESS THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS!  (I also know this is a Word for 2016 because He has said that this will be a year of creativity in establishing foundations for recovery of what has been  lost.)


Beloved when you are in season of hard labor with many tasks I understand the sweat in which you pour out. I understand all that you do to provide for your family. I see your work just to maintain that nothing is lost.


Sometimes there are seasons of rest and others are seasons of much activity. Part of what you are dealing with is recovering loss and standing against the enemy that nothing more be taken. The other side of this is that in letting go, I AM moving you forward into a new place of promotion and increased boundaries. The very act of moving has many hands-on tasks of labor in building a solid foundation in which to grow in your new place. This new place will provide the platform to recover and maintain what you have lost.


I AM blessing the works of your hands. You shall not come behind in any gift, and when your foundation is built solid, I will bless all that you have done to labor with your hands.


Ps 90:16-17 AMP
Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children. And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands — yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.


I felt that He was encouraging me that He would bless my time with Him scrapbooking.  I really enjoy listening to scripture, sermons and rhema on my iTouch as I scrapbook and it is very peaceful.  Even though I felt I was to apply the title, I WILL BLESS THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS in connection to scrapbooking, I asked Him if that is what He meant.


Today He answered that prayer!  I was on the way home from errands and stopped at JoAnn’s Fabrics.  I had a quickened eye glance at the following magazine!  I just love how He speaks! First my eye caught the word DO. 



I had rhema this month about Him quickening the word DO in several different applications.  One of the questions I asked the Lord all throughout 2015 when I was on my sabbatical Shemitah rest (after having completed my 2nd race on 12/31/15) was, “Lord what do You want me to DO???”  I asked that question many, many times. 


And then my eye dropped to the line below DO that says, “Color me Happy!”  Oh He is SO great! He immediately brought to mind the following vision that I had last month!!



HEARD AND SAW:  You delight Me child.  What I am about to DO. Are you interested?  Topic.   I saw Wayne and he was editing one of my Words.  He pointed out the sentence, “She was blue faced.” Wayne said it needed to be deleted!!



Precious ones I have seen your tears and know your long sufferings in waiting for My promises and My Word to manifest in the earth.  No more sad, blue faces!  I AM assigning you new joys with creative time to put life and color back into you!  I will quicken colors to you this year and speak to you through them.  I will quicken designs and patterns and open your eyes to see My Word and My ways through them. 


Just as I delight in you for just being My child, I want you to be like a child who simply delights in creative time.  Enjoy bringing balance and order out of chaos!  Design and decorate, put into place.  Set your houses and lives in order dear ones!  I will rain on you and give you great pleasure as I pour out My grace upon you to accomplish these tasks.


2 Samuel 5:11 And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David a house.
