HC SHAPED OPENING GATEFOLD

Good morning!
Today I've used the beautiful die we got with the Cherry Blossom Retreat Collection
as a shaper for my "gate".
To make double layers I did have to draw around the die and fussy cut
but that wasn't hard to do at all.  Try it!

Proverbs 15:1 New King James Version

A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath
15 A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
Wow, isn't this the truth!  Keeping calm in the middle of controversy is hard but it also defuses the situation most of the time.  NOT reacting to someone is the best.  The other person may even be saying hurtful things against your character that you know is not true, reacting to that only causes them to react to your reaction and a vicious cycle is now started.
What happens when you say something nice back instead, they have no where to go with it and often just feel like a jerk (especially given some time to think about it).
Next time someone is anger and starts trying to stir things up, try giving a "soft" answer instead of reacting.

One of my favorite songs is "So Will I"
Part of it goes like this...
Verse 1
"God of creation there at the start
before the beginning of time
with no point of reference You spoke to the dark 
and fleshed out the wonder of light.
Chorus 1
And as You speak a hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapor of Your breathe the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You've made
Every burning star a signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I"
Verse 2
God of Your promise
You don't speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken all nature and science
follow the sound of Your voice
Chorus 2
And as You speak a hundred 
billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky a canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I"
There are more verses, If you would like to hear it or see the rest of the lyrics you can find it on line.  So Will I by Hillsong

The Bible says that God wants all to come to Him, that is not exclusive at all.  He does not want any to perish but it is up to us because He gave all of us free will.     2 Peter 3:9 


"The Lord isn’t really being slow about His promise, as some people think. No, He is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent". 
God's word also says that He so loved EVERYONE that He gave His only son to die in our place because none are righteous.

John 3:16 


16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 
Jesus the Christ, God's only son said in John 14:6 
 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me".  
So the only thing you have to decide is: Was Jesus who He said He was? Many witnesses testify He was, OR was Jesus crazy or a liar? 
 Jesus actually lived that is a fact.  Hundreds of people saw Him crucified, that is a fact, and then later saw Him alive, that is a fact.  Many thousands saw Him do so many miracles they could not all be written down, these are all historical facts.
I know who I believe in and He has changed my life, how about you? 
God's word says ALL have sinned, it does not matter what you have done, He loves you and wants you to come to Him.  Believe in Him, that He died for you and rose again from the dead, turn from your sin asking Jesus to forgive you and ask Him to become your Lord and Savior then follow Him (that is make Him your boss and do like He did while He was on earth...study His word so you know what He did).  But don't worry if you are not perfect, no one is...we all sin but He is faithful and just to forgive us when we belong to Him and ask Him to forgive.
