Are you discouraged?

Discouragement comes in many forms. It can be difficult to know the source. Loneliness, depression, and failure can bring discouragement. Some people have had emotional trauma that surfaces at certain times. Others are very affected by the weather. The isolation of the past months can take its toll on us and our families.

Esther's Story

Esther-1_LR

Esther's Story

The Feast of Lots or Purim Card is from the The Feasts of Israel Fulfilled Collection at www.flowergirlgreetings.com

Dear friends,

The celebration of the Feast of Lots or Purim (poo reem’) begins at sundown on March 9th this year. The first Feast of Purim was recorded in the Megillah, the Scroll of Esther.  

When I decided to add the Purim Art Card to The Feasts of Israel Fulfilled Collection, I had no idea how difficult it would be… Capturing the dazzle and gold leaf reflections from the original art to reproduce for the printer was daunting! Please consider giving the gift of this vibrant Art Card Collection – The Feasts of Israel Fulfilled!

Full Fall Tabernacle Rains of Hope

Full Fall Tabernacle Rains of Hope
Living in His Undeserved Love

Shale Fragments™ - devotionals by Beth Ann Phifer

Dear friends,
 
It has been about two weeks since my brother, Doug, passed away at 59 years old.
We cried and grieved.
We persevered through arrangements.
Afterward, Dusty and I kept our plans for a five-day get-away with friends into the beautiful fall landscape of Old Mission Peninsula in Michigan.
I returned sick.
Today, energy returns.
I thirst for the Living Water of my Savior.
Just Him and me.

A Beautiful Gift for that Special Person — Loaded with Encouragement for the Entire Year

A Beautiful Gift for that Special Person — Loaded with Encouragement for the Entire Year

Are you looking for the perfect gift for that special person? Our colorful, high-quality Who I Am Journal Collection began as an act of praise to my Father for His beautiful promises in Ephesians, Chapter 1. I began to paint all the names He has given me as His child. This Collection contains 12 of these names, but there are certainly more! I spread all my watercolors out and began to paint large, sweeping, watercolor letters with a pointed brush.

October 11 – My Annual Celebration Day of Deliverance!

Freedom-springs-of-joy-1_LR

October 11 — My Annual Celebration Day of Deliverance!

Dear friends,

On September 26, 1998, I had a complete nervous breakdown. I didn’t have a clue what had happened to me. On October 11, 2001, I walked out of my Christian counselor’s office for the last time… declared well, healed, delivered. This three-year, tormentuous crucible could only be compared to either a volcanic explosion that left total devastation in its wake or a grenade explosion that left everything separated in tiny, tiny pieces. Would I ever be whole again? I wondered.

Yom Kippur – the Culmination of Adonai’s Hesed

Hesed-Banner-Process---0_LR

Yom Kippur—the Culmination of Adonai's Hesed

Dear friends,

Jesus (Yeshua) fulfilled The Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur that begins at sundown today, October 8, 2019 and lasts through October 9.  Yom Kippur recognizes Father’s greatest act of hesed toward us.  The Lord has made His hesed (indescribable love) so tangible to me these past two months by opening up a treasure of understanding that I experienced in a big way on August 8 of this year. I am still not able to put the impact into words, but it has affected everything including my prayers.

In honor of this special lavish learning from my Father, I created this long banner with green satin letters on white linen to be the centerpiece of our home – Hesed Adonai Khadash kol Boker or The lovingkindness of the Lord is new every morning!
