January Divine Design

Don't worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and your minds as you live in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:6-7

My dear friend Carol shared this verse with me last week and I thought it would be a lovely addition to my desk flip book. As I've read it over and over again, I can almost hear God saying "Don't worry, pray and experience my peace as you live in Christ Jesus." During these emotionally difficult winter months, that is such a comfort to me.

Since I had not finished my Divine Design project from last year, I wanted to complete it before moving on to this year's project. This is my last page and I now have 8 verses on double sided 4x4 coasters which I will take to work. I can rotate each verse on a weekly basis or as I need them for encouragement. It's my prayer that they will be an encouragement to others in our office as well.

The Divine Design Challenges were started last year by Lori Craig and will carry on this year with her fellow Scripture Chicks, Angel, Nancy, Taylor and Jami. If you'd like to participate, you can find out all of the details here.

For my project this year, I purchased one of Taylor's vertical frames to display my Divine Designs. I've asked my family to share some of their favorite scripture verses and will use them, along with a few more that have touched my heart. I'm really excited about including my family in this project as it will prompt more spiritual conversation among us. Yet another blessing of participating in this wonderful challenge.

Enjoy your day~ Patti

Thank you for this inspirational verse today Patti! I love your idea of your flip book for work. Do you have the other pages listed on your blog?
For Mother's Day in 1997, when our daughter was 7, my Mom gave me a flip booklet made by Daily Blessings called "For Daughter: Daily Thoughts for a Wonderful Daughter" that sits by my bedside to this day. There are bible verses & quotes. It travels with me wherever I go. I read them each night as I get settled in bed to finish my day before I pray. It helps me to think about my day & about my Mom.
Stampin' Smiles & Blessings!
Ann :)

Very pretty, Patti! Love the subtle colors, the buttons, and the glittery bird. And that verse is one of my very favorites, so soothing -- in fact, it currently graces our computer as our screen saver. ;)
