Speaking of sharing creativity, I want to share with you today some of the creativity that was sent to me through an online ATC Swap that I am involved in over on Facebook. This month two of my swaps came from Australia! Isn't that exciting! I have many online friends from abroad, but there is just something about getting a piece of mail with "Australia, or United Kingdom or Germany" on it! It makes me feel special! I wonder if you folk abroad feel the same way about receiving western mail? As I shared with a wonderful friend of mine yesterday, I'm easily entertained, so maybe that's it! LOL
|Red & Green Swap from Joannie Campbell|
|Zentangle Swap from Lyn Reynolds|
The second package was from Lyn Reynolds who is from Proston, Australia. I really liked her ATC as well as it was a part of the Zentangle Swap and I love to Zentangle. I'm probably not the best at it, but I love it none the less! She did these beautiful flowers with that precious hint of red! She also had it enclosed in this handmade card with a lovely note inside! Thank you so much Lyn! I hope both of you ladies have a Very Merry Christmas and a blessed new year!
You know, in God's Word He speaks on sharing and giving to others! In Matthew 10 Jesus told His disciples "freely you have received, freely give." That is a commandment we should ALL live by daily! When we "freely" give to others out of the gift that God has given to us, it will glorify Him in EVERY way thereby opening up for you, as well as the receiver, a blessing! God has given to us that we "share" with another! That is a type and shadow of the GREAT love that He freely has and gives to us! It is the very character of Christ when we give out of a heart that is geared toward the Father! I want to be blessed and I want to bless the Father. What about you?
I pray this holiday season as well as each and every day that you share your glorious gift with another that you bring glory back to the Father!
