Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #1!

Welcome! I hope you enjoyed the blog hop and now we're on to the first challenge of the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog. Check the blog for all the nitty gritty details of the challenge. But here is a closer look at the layout I created for it, showing an everyday miracle in my own life.
The journaling reads:
I love springtime and the fresh start it represents. I eagerly await the blooming of my flowers, especially my irises which are some of my favorites. First the green leaves poke through the ground and get taller and taller. Then up comes the flower stalks and the buds get bigger and bigger. I came out on this morning and they had bloomed! The early morning sun was shining on them and it later reminded me of a verse, Lamentations 3:22-23 “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.” I've been having a tough time lately and perhaps not always responding to the hard parts of life in the way God wants me to. But I am comforted in remembering that his mercy and compassion is new each morning, even if I mess up. I am so thankful for his unending faithfulness (and his reminders of that faithfulness.)

I hope you can look at the miracles in your life and create a layout about it. Then post it over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog to share. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do!


  1. I like irises too, although I don't have any now. But, they do bring back sweet memories of childhood. I needed to be reminded of God's mercy and compassion this morning! Thanks!

  2. Spring is my fave season of the year. It's so amazing to see the nature change for the better. TFS your beautiful layout.

  3. How did I miss this????? Your layout is beautiful. I love your flowery bird and your heartfelt journaling.
