My morning paintings from God!

In June I was transferred to a new school as assistant principal. I went from having a 5 minute drive to a 30 minute drive, so now I am having to leave my house at 6:40 AM. I am NOT a morning person, so this has been a struggle for me. However, it has been a great transition and God is showing me that I can have some time with Him each morning. This move has been very good for me in many ways --- my stress level is much lower and I am really enjoying being at my new school. Another great thing about this is I am driving East each morning which means I get to see the sunrise on most days. Here are a few pictures that I snapped while stopped at a traffic light on a couple of different mornings. I always look at a sunrise as a special painting from God just for me!!! What a blessing to see his artwork every morning.

Playing Catch Up!

WOW! I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last posted. It has been a very busy and hectic month. We are less than one week from Katie's wedding so needless to say we have been getting all the last minute stuff done. Jordan & I also went to Bryson City, NC with on a missions trip with our youth group for a week. Then I had a week long intense training for the new reading program our district s adopting in all the schools --- so I haven't had a whole lot of time to do much scrappin'! However, it has been a good month and I am looking forward to next weekend with Katie's wedding. I will post some pics after the wedding!

I previewed the new Fall Idea Book and CTMH has some great new paper packs and some exciting new products. I will be hosting some more workshops in Septmeber and will also be kicking the new book off...so stay tuned!!!!
