Week 12 of our 52 WEEKS of Gratitude: In ALL things, give thanks...

Hello friends!
Today is Palm Sunday, a day where Jesus began his final week in Jerusalem.  It is a humble reminder of this week's verse, In ALL things we are to give thanks.  Why?  Because there is a sovereign God in control, working the things (be they pleasant or unpleasant) to make us more like Christ and to accomplish His will.  Do we rejoice in the good times and complain in the bad?  We must learn to see the trials and blessings in our life as within His power, and give thanks in all things.  Jesus spent His final week doing the Father's will, knowing the cross and the physical pain only days away.  We must set our eyes on Him, always giving thanks, for it truly is God's will for us in Christ Jesus!

Above you see the next set of verses we will be using for our April Gratitude Art! This set is a discounted collection of the 4 verses you see above and available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

 I want to encourage those of you who haven't joined us yet, to join us for April.  I will be focusing my Gratitude Artwork on TAGS in April, so grab your tags or your TAGS stamp set from Inspired Stamps, or make some tags yourself out of cardstock and plan to join us for April's Gratitude Artwork!  Those wanting to do canvas, ATC, cards, scrapbook pages, or journals, please click on the link to see what all we've been doing:  CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL THE GRATITUDE ARTWORK POSTS
