COLOR ME HAPPY!
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.)
I WILL BLESS THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS 3/28/10
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
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
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!!

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!!
WORD TO PONDER:

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

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
