All Joy


My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
James 1:2-4

Joy in trials, bright beautiful colors w/ braided, tattered ribbon, soft fabric, vintage flowers on an old worn child's book cover. Life is imperfect and beautiful. True joy is joy that can be found in the worn and tattered times of life. it is joy that overflows form a heart and life that trust in God's goodness It is joy that comes with the wisdom and patience of age.

Do you see the cross in the middle? I wanted it is symbolizes the source, the middle of true joy, true peace and comfort!

4 1/4 in, x 6 1/2 in child's book cover, hung by a handmade "gypsy ribbon braid"

Hi Heather,

Just stopping in to see what's going on. I thought I would get around to it sooner during the summer but once again the summer has flown by so fast.

I was wondering if you would be interested in exchanging blog buttons???? :-) I looked around but didn't see one. I just made a new blog banner and button this past week so *IF* you do have a blog button and *IF* you would be interested, please, let me know.

Blessings!
