I've battled with having 'too much of me' all my life. I need to make permanent lifestyle changes to be healthier and would love to have an eating plan that didn't feel like a diet.

About me: I live in Australia. I'm a paper crafter and teacher who makes cards, scrapbooks, ATCs, 3-d projects and paper flowers. You can see some of my work at http://www.papercraftcentral.com

I'm married and between us we have three grown children. The grandbabies have started coming too ...

I'm married and between us we have three grown children. The grandbabies have started coming too :) It's a blessing to have them.

My faith in Christ is of utmost importance to me and I belong to a local church.

Good Morning

Dropping by to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend and share a special Easter Poem....

Easter Means Eternal Life

A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
He cannot let us get away with sin.
We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.

Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
"But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
"I’ll send my only Son to be the one."

Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.

On Easter morning, he came back from death;
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
His resurrection means eternal life
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.

This summarizes all the Easter story
And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.

emoticon emoticon

I leave you with a special Easter Poem, hope you enjoy!

Easter Love

On Easter we celebrate love,
love coming down from heaven,
love blanketing the earth
in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine
for us, to cleanse our sin,
a perfect sacrifice, Lamb of God,
the walking, talking Word.
He is teacher, role model, friend,
this God in human form,
dying, then rising from the dead,
proving all who believe
will also rise
to have eternal life, with Him,
Lord of all.
Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a great weekend ahead, also want to say emoticon for your support on my blogs, your friendship is appreciated...Hope you enjoy the following poem.. emoticon Did I tell you, I really love your profile page and background, very nice,,,

The Gift Of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold -
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It can neither see nor hear,
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand -
So when you ask God for a Gift,
Be thankful if He sends
Nor diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends.
