Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Kick Off and Giveaway

Hello, dear and precious friends! I am recovering from blepharoplasty surgery (eyelids) and am slowly able to see better each day  and always cherish and thank you for your continued prayers. I am very eager to start coloring again soon. It certainly is wonderful therapy for me as I continue to deal with health problems. But...I have some wonderful news to share with my dear stamping friends (including a big giveaway and a month-long discount code).

Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker is unleashing a world of color on her blog and Instagram (@kathyrac) this month, and she wants all of us to join her in the fun!

As I close today, I always love to share some words of encouragement. If you are a stamper, I trust you will find some joy in coloring. No matter what we do each day, may we always (through whatever God has allowed in our lives) find our true joy and hope in the Lord. God is our Father and the Source of all good things, and He has greatly blessed us.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Also, He has put eternity into man's heart,
yet so that he cannot find out what God has done
from the beginning to the end.
I perceived that there is nothing better for them
than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live;
also that everyone should eat and drink
and take pleasure in his toil  this is God's gift to man.
Ecclesiastes 3:11-13

As always, sweet friends, I enjoy your visits and love reading each of your comments. I hope to be able to color and share a card with you soon. Until then, may God continue to bless you.
