DDD: Irish Blessing + Wednesday Wisdom

Hello again, dear friends!  Welcome to another weekly post for me for Diane's Daydream Designs!  This week, I've got a green creation for you--it's getting to be that time of year when leprechauns come out of the wood work, you know! ;)  I've used the Irish Blessings Sentiments set to create my card for this week.  Come and take a peek!


Here's my card~

Detail~

This card made me think of all the people that have blessed my life.  They have always blessed me by serving me.  Thinking of service reminds me of one of my all time favorite verses from The Book of Mormon.  In Mosiah 2:17, King Benjamin tells his people,

"And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God."

Each time we serve someone that is close to us, or even someone not close to us, we are literally becoming God's hands here on the earth and the service we perform for our fellow men is the same as if we were serving God Himself.  What a wonderful opportunity we have to show our love for God by serving each other!

Thanks for stopping by to look at my creation today!  I hope you take some time today to serve someone--even if it is just by giving a simple smile!  I also hope that you are able to feel God's love for you today and always--it never changes.  HUGS and happy stamping, friends!

U absolutely LOVE this, Mynnette! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. And you're right, we are SO blessed by one another. God is so good to us in giving us friends who encourage us to live right, spend time in the Word, pray for one another, love our husbands, serve in our church, and let's not forget.....to spend lots of money and time on crafting. Yes, we are blessed for sure. Thanks for being a blessing in my life as well.
