Guarantees

Thanks in part to the economic situation, we've been getting great deals everywhere, and I finally got my own laptop - a Vaio, no less, the NS model, heavy but with a beautiful large screen! The boys now have the old computer to themselves, our great three year old Compaq which is chugging along, even 'died' many a times but manages always to revive itself to serve us faithfully. :)
I have a 15 month guarantee on the Vaio, I hope it will last far longer than that!
Tonight I was flipping through 'every teenager's little black book of God's guarantees' by Blaine Bartel, and was so blessed I hope she doesn't mind that I share a bit of it with you:
1. The bible guarantees that if we trust in God, He will direct our path (Prov 3:5,6)
2. The bible guarantees that God has a plan for our lives (Jer 29:11)
3. The bible guarantees that God's purpose for us will prevail (Prov 19:21)She goes on to say that: No matter what we face or how many people let us down, God's direction and plan for us will stand strong. It is not dependent on what other people do or what breaks we catch, it is dependent on our trust in God, and God will never let us down. How true this is as I look back, and how encouraging as I look forward!

And here is our next 14 days of my 365 Project. I'm so glad we still enjoy simple joys everyday despite all the bad news going on. Also loved how this all white page turned out. Scrapping our lives is one of my best simple joys!

And here are my first two layouts of our Japan trip! Finally I'm starting on them, and it's so exciting to review and re-live the trip... can't believe it's been nearly 3 months....

We were so happily surprised to find impressionist art on our first day in Tokyo, in Ueno Park just a short walk from our hotel!

  10. It's always great to see your day to day life. Wish we could hang our laundry out to dry. Neighborhood covenants forbid it. And your Japanese layouts are simply fabulous. Thanks for the template. Maybe one of the days I'll get started with my 365 project, LOL.
