March Divine Design

It's the 9th and that means it's time to post our monthly Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge projects! I made my monthly bookmark and used Psalm 25:5 ~ Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. I love this passage. It's my prayer. And thanks to the bookmark, I'll be focusing on this scripture and memorizing it this month. Are YOU playing along with the challenge? If you are....great! If not, you can join anytime. The rules are simple and you can find them right HERE. And remember to use the keyword BVC09 when you upload to the SCS gallery!

Need some inspiration? Here's a link to the other Scripture Chicks and their amazing March projects ~

I wanted to apologize for not leaving more comments in the BVC09 (Divine Design) gallery & thread over at SCS. My s
chedule these past 3 months has been just crazy. After being gone for 2 months, we've had company for 2 of the last 3 weeks. It appears that things are getting back to normal around our house (except for me having the flu this weekend) ... so I look forward to checking out the BVC09 gallery this week! Can't wait to see what YOU've created :) !!!
Miss Chloe came to visit last week. She loves bath time. I took this picture of her enjoying a bath in my kitchen sink.
Our little miracle baby! And...I wanted to share some news with you. I've decided to return to school! As of March 30th, I'll be a full time college student. My intended major is nursing, but I'm leaving a few other options open. God's been tugging at my heart for a while and I knew some changes were coming. I'm really excited for this new opportunity to work toward my bachelor degree. I hope to take that degree into the mission field one day. I'll continue with Divine Design (of course!) and look forward to stamping and posting when I have free time. I'll also be continuing as an SU demo, but for now, won't be doing any design work so that I can focus my attention on my studies.
I'm taking part in Our Daily Bread Design's Anniversary Celebration this week. My "official" post will be on Wednesday but I wanted to give you a little sneak peek today. I was on Kelley's original Design Team when she kicked things off one year ago...and the first set she released was Light of the World ...and that's the stamp set I used for today's card. It's still one of my favs! You can check out the fun at these blogs, beginning tomorrow ~

Nancy, your work is lovely. I have been waiting to cut into my Tea Party paper so now I just have to! I love the font on the book mark too. Which one is it? Is it in MS Word? You can email the answer when you have time. Congrats on school too! That is fabulous news. :)

I love your bookmark - such a great scripture and beautiful Spring colors. Chloe's expression in that photo is just sweet!! I'm so happy for you in your decision to return to school and follow where your heart is pulling you!

Congrats! I went back to college in 2005 at 34 years old. I am 5 months shy of my bachelor's. It does take away from stamping, but it is worth it! You get to buy more with the $$ you can earn with a degree! I started with nursing as well and ended up with Community Health. Chloe looks to cute with that face!

Congrats on deciding to go back to school. It'll be a lot of work, but definitely worth it!

God bless!

Congrats on returning to school. I always love to see people with obedient hearts serving God in the way He is directing them :) You go girl! Cute g-daughter and a lovely bookmark.

Wonderful news Nancy! You go girl! I know you will be a blessing to all you serve in school and after. I admire your courage in following a dream whenever it happens and wherever it leads you in fullfilling your long term goals. I carried a similar dream for a long time but let fear hold me back for too long. So walk in faith and God will honor your dreams and aspirations.

Hugs,blessings and prayers for success in all you do. And bless your family for the support they so obviously are giving you. - Jean
