Hi there! Welcome to the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Spring Blog hop! It's a new term and we wanted to introduce our new Design Team and throw a little blog candy your way!
If you came here from Jessica then you are on the right track!
If you want to start at the beginning here is the blog roll order:
If you are not familiar with SEM, here is what our founder, Nicole, has to share:
"Here at SEM we want people to see that God is working in their lives all around them. That everyday is full of miracles if we just take the time to see them. It is the little things that sometimes we don't take the time to notice but He is standing right there saying here I am. As times are hard and we may feel where is God... where are the blessings.... why is this happening to me... if we take the time to stop sometimes the littlest thing can change your prospective.... can give you the hope to keeping going. As we complete challenges it is a chance for followers and the DT to spend time with God as we scrap... talking to Him and asking Him what He wants you to see... and what He will bring to mind when it comes to the theme of the challenge. "
I wanted to share with you a cute spring layout,
featuring my niece,Vivien, on her first easter:
What do you love most about Spring?
Spring is a re-awakening of nature and spirit to me. After Christmas, I feel like I am just marking time until Easter. Oh, sure we have Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day to distract us from our winter blues but Easter is the start of the warmer days and promise of new growth to come!
As a Christian, I feel Easter is really the decisive issue. Most folks have no problem believing in the Nativity Story. What's not to love about a baby? Most folks will agree with the fact that Jesus Christ was crucified. But, one must make a conscious decision as to whether or not they believe HE ROSE AGAIN!
Jesus did what no one else could do and He did it for us! When things looked darkest for his followers, He rose above and gave them hope, just like He does today!
Where do you live?
I live in the mountains of the Berkshires in North Adams,Massachusetts,USA, where we are having an unusually long winter. I work as an RN and my center hosted a community egg hunt. It was really easy to hide the eggs this year as we still have at least a foot of snow on the ground!
In addition to the SEM Grand prize,
I will be offering a Surprise Spring RAK of my own.
