Scripture Paperclip Banners- Faith, Hope and Love

So Sorry about not posting yesterday. I woke up and was working on misc... design team stuff and was asked to go into work.  I was only there for about 4 1/2 hours but it was long enough to throw my entire schedule off for the day.  By the time that i picked up groceries and was on my way home the kids were getting out of school and dinner was needing to be made.

I've been doing some real soul searching lately and i think that i have some of my priorities way off.  I've let my praying and bible study time diminish and I've really been struggling at work.  I just can't believe how this world has changed. I NEED to get my head back on straight and prioritize.  I only have about another year left with my daughter and then she will be off to college.  By the time i'm finished helping with 30 kids at work i'm exhausted and very impatient with my own children. My plan is to pray and Study more, cut down on my hours at work and spend more quality time with my kids.  This may mean that i won't be able to craft daily, but i think that it is important that i put God and my family back where they belong.  Be patient with me, I will still work on my 3 Design teams that i'm on, but may not post as much other Stuff.  

With that all in mind, i chose to create some Paperclip banners for my new Scripture Planner.

Your banners are wonderful, I have never seen anything like them before. Your post has also shamed me, I am guilty of much the same, letting the important things, like prayer and study, slip while getting overwhelmed by the unimportant ones. So thank you not only for sharing the beautiful banners but the inspiring message too. Pippa Path of Positivity DT

Love your Bible markers. Everyone should have a few to keep their place in the good book. Thank you for sharing your art with us at the Path of Positivity (AND at Craft Your Passion AND Your Scrapbook Place). Maybe I should look at my priorities as well!!
