Sneak Peek and A Fresh Start!

Tomorrow we will get A Fresh Start on another year!  It really is true that the older you get the faster time seems to zip right on by!  It is hard to believe another year has come and gone!  Time to reassess our resolutions and goals.  I don't know about you, but I have a hard time keeping any resolutions or goals I make, which usually only centers around my spiritual life anyway.  I vow to myself every year that I will read my Bible and pray EVERY day, and every year I fail to some degree or another, even though I did better this year than I have in the past!  But, this year I'm going to try a different approach.  And, it has everything to do with this verse from the Bible, "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." from Psalm 37:4.  This will be "my" verse for 2011.  I'm going to focus my attention on delighting myself in the LORD and I believe He will help me achieve my desired goal of reading my Bible and praying every day!  Will you join me in this pursuit?

Thinking in the direction of a new year, the new monthly Theme-A-Ma-Jig challenge that I host at Faith Sisters will focus on the following phrases for January:

a fresh start
new beginnings
only the beginning
old things are passed away, all things are become new
new every morning
joy comes in the morning
it's a new day

I am asking those who participate to pick one of the phrases (or more, if you wish) and create a layout using the phrase as a jumping off point.  You can do a journaling page or you can include photos.  It is totally up to you.  One of the rules is that you use at least 3 elements from one of the Faith Sisters designers in your layout.  I always try to help you out with providing a freebie that coordinates with the theme.  For this challenge, I have created a special kit called, A Fresh Start.  And for those who participate, I have also created an Add-on as a prize, which I will give a coupon for obtaining it free.  And the free sampler to get you started on the challenge coordinates with the kit and the add-on.  All 3 will be released tomorrow in my store at Faith Sisters.

So, for a SNEAK PEEK of A Fresh Start, here is the layout I did for the challenge using the kit and the add-on.  If you have read this far, THANKS SO MUCH, for your interest!  Following my layout are some layouts created by my CT and a designer friend.

I look forward to you joining me in the challenge this month!  And, I pray you each have a blessed NEW YEAR!!
