Salt Blog Challenge - Priorities & Embellish BG Challenge




I came across this challenge on the Salt Blog and it really made me think about my priorities. I spend so much time browsing the web for all the latest and greatest crafting ideas, participating in challenges, blogging etc. This has become my main priority...oh dear! Then I quickly try to read my daily devotional for the day...got my priorities in the wrong order most definitely. Well I am going to start my day with my devotional and then let the rest follow. The message from my devotional today was "a godly parent is a child's best guide to God". I really want to be a good example for my children. God comes first!

I made this 'scrapling', magnetic bookmark to keep in my bible to remind me to "Delight in the Lord". I used colours from the Embellish Background Challenge, PTI's Damask Designs for the BG stamping and the bible verse is one of Verve's Plain Janes.
