Humble Gratitude

In the word of GOD it is written to give thanks for everything. So I want to give thanks.

I am grateful for all who have come and looked at my art, entered the drawings.  I am grateful I was able to send the ART Frames to them without having to charge so that it would be completely a gift all the way. I am grateful for the supplies to make the art frames, the website to post and to show the art and give others the chance to enter, win and receive. I am grateful for the shipping help to pack and ship each one and have them all arrive in excellent order to each person who received them.

I am grateful for everything that went into being able to give the blessings of My Cross Illuminated Art to those that asked for it in entering the monthly drawings. There was some that saw it but could not believe it was a gift, it did not cost them. One person even tried to buy all I had for their organization’s auction to support missionaries, however, they understood this was as it was to us from GOD, a gift, no charge.

I am grateful for the comments, the testimonies, the interactions that these blessings have given to me and it has strengthened in me the ability to share the Gospel message and to give so that others can see just how an empty cross, held the salvation of us all for all eternity. How an empty tomb shows us victory is ours and a Humble Savior, shows us what Love truly means.

One of the great humblings of this ART Frame giving has been how sharing with others helps the peace of GOD in everyone it touches. In myself and in others that see, ask, and receive the ART Frames. I am humbled when I know that one of the places we give to also gets a donation as well as a result and everything goes from one act of giving to another act of giving. I am very humbled by this with tremendous gratitude.

There are so many places in GOD’s word that tell us to give thanks, to pray, to not give up, to bless others, to give as it purposes in our heart, to Love one another as Christ does. My Cross Illuminated Art has been a place for me to live those scriptures out and for that, I bow my knees and I give thanks with all my heart gratitude to HIM who showed HIS Love, that while we were yet sinners, gave His only begotten son to be the propitiation for our sins. I am very grateful to GOD, for the gift everlasting if only each one of us will take the gift and give thanks.

Give thanks to GOD for all things, the positive and the negative for he works all things for good! Make every day of your life filled with gratitude toward GOD and humble yourself so that he can pour into your life and into you, His blessings so that you can give Him all the Glory. That is what he created each of us to do, Bless us so that we could Glorify HIM.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this blog and my artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.
