sharing :)

There is alot to be said about sharing. We try to teach our kids to share from an early age. I mean, no one wants their kid to be the one that can't share, ya know??

I think as adults, however, we must continue that concept. Not just our toys though. We need to share our lives, our faith, our family. I am trying to put myself out there more. You see, I am quite the shy one....I would rather be a wallflower any day. However, I married the class clown. haha Andy will talk to anyone and he can make a friend with just about any person he meets. I think I need to take note.

At church, there have been a few women that were placed on my heart that might need some welcoming - a place to feel at home. Yet, week after week, I just sit in my pew and do nothing. Not this time baby! On Sunday, I *will* share myself with them. Invite them to our fabulous Sunday School class....anything. God doesn't call us to be wallflowers...he calls us to be lights for him. I have gotta be accountable - so I will let you know how it goes. :)

A few other things I need to share with ya'll.

First are some new pictures...
And then a layout I did using the Lifetime Moments kit from July. :)Here is a closeup of the tag at the bottom - which is from a Scarlet Lime kit (both the circle and the regular tag).
And a closeup of the title - which uses 2 different Thicker fonts and some AC letter stickers.
I think I am going to take the plunge and apply for the Little Red Scrapbook design team. It is a kit club!! They have some awesome kits and this would be a great opportunity. I guess keep your fingers crossed. I am so excited - but, can't decide what to write about myself or which layouts to send in for my submission.

Maybe that is a part of being the shy one. Never much to say about myself.

Until next time...

Good luck on the DT, your work is amazing so you'll definitely be noticed!!
As someone who moves frequently, I applaud you to put yourself out there to welcome these women at church. Even when I don't feel "at home" with my new city, I can always rely on church.
Love the cute new pictures, so great to see you with your dd, getting out from behind the camera!

Good luck on the trying out. LRS is a great club. And I understand what you are saying about being a shy gal. My husband is a pastor at our church and he is so able to meet everyone and make friends easily. Me not so much. Will be praying for you this Sunday! You will do wonderfully and those folks will feel so welcomed in that church...as they should be.
