Snowy Cabin: Philippians 2:3-4

Happy New Year! I missed sharing time with you and look forward to sharing in the form a challenge based on scripture here at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ! I am so glad to see you all!

This week Peggysue is our hostess and the verse she chose is Philippians 2:3-4 . Be sure to stop by our home page to read her take on the scripture this week.

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, (4) not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others."

Great verse! Perhaps we have to think back (for me) to when you held your infant in your arms. Everything I did was for him. I did not focus all my attentions on him for a reward or for others to say, "Look what a good mother she is!" it was all because of the love I felt (and still do) for that baby. There are times when we Christians (and I do speak for myself here) tell others all the wonderful things we are doing in our church. All the committees and and groups we belong to; all the good works we do, have done, and will do soon. Is that so others will see what good "Christians" we are? Good question to ponder.

Our challenge this week is to make a card that tells someone we are thinking of them. I like these kinds of cards and I think that everyone likes getting them from time to time.    

Love the fake snow! We do not get snow here so it is fun to play with the fake stuff. Right now I would not mind being curled up in a chair in front of a fire in that cabin with my DH! I used a background stamp from ODBD with some versamark and glitter. The cabin and sentiment is from GKD. I colored the image using distress inks - love the rustic look it created.

Morning Miesje *Ü* Boy, I'd sure love to go to this snowy cabin right about now for a li'l cozy getaway!! We actually got a nice li'l snowfall yesterday (and night before)... not too much, but I love to sit in a cozy house and watch it fall thru the window. LOVE your gorgeous snowflakes/paper and your flocking (snow) on roof. Hope you have a blessed week my friend.

What a cozy looking cabin. I wouldn't mind the snow, if I had a fire place, lots of supplies, (so I wouldn't have to go out), my computer and my stamping supplies!!! Thankfully we are having a warmer the normal winter so far. Both of my sons have a different oppinion. They are hoping and praying for snow!

Good evening Miesje! So wonderful to see your new creations here in the new year, that is one pretty card. Someone will greatly enjoy receiving it! And you are right, our motivation is as important as reaching out; WHY are we doing what we're doing? Great thoughts on the verse.
