I got to scrap!!!!

I was finally able to scrap last night and it was sooo much fun! I have really missed it. I did a LO for a circle journal over at Faithfully Yours and two cards. The cards are made from scraps left over from the LO.

Dreams Come True

Journaling says:

Left side: Like many young girls, I dreamed of someday having a husband and being a stay-at-home mom to our children. On December 28, 1984, the first part of my dream came true when I married my Mr. Wright. Just a week less than 15 mos. Later, our son was born. As time passed, my arms began to feel empty and I was dreaming in pink. After three years of prayer and some fertility treatments, the Lord graciously gave us our daughter. I was able to not only stay home with our children, but I had the privilege of homeschooling them as well. Truly dreams do come true.

Psalm 37:4-5 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Right side: I grew up in a Baptist pastor’s home and my husband’s parents were home missionaries in KY. When we were dating, Tim told me the one thing I never had to worry about was being a pastor’s wife. He said he knew the headaches and responsibilities and he didn’t want them. I was a bit disappointed because I’d enjoyed being a pastor’s daughter. As the years passed however, Tim began to feel the Lord leading him towards the pastorate. First it was just getting a Master’s degree in Bible, then being ordained, and finally the day came when he told me he felt the Lord wanted him to pastor. I was thrilled. At this time Tim was the Minister of Music of our church. Thru a long series of events, that only the Lord could have arranged, Tim became the pastor of our church on May 12, 1997. I have thoroughly enjoyed being the pastor’s wife.
