Here I am. Late posting for Divine Design. My project for December will follow in just a few minutes, but it’s a long post and first, I wanted to comment about the entire project as the first year of Divine Design comes to a close.
In January, I really wanted to band together with other believers and focus on how Christ worked in our lives during 2008. I had no idea what the year would hold, nor did I have any pre-conceived ideas about what would happen, who would participate, how many entries, etc. The numbers didn’t really matter. What a blessing to see so many people uploading and sharing at Splitcoaststampers and linking on blogs to this challenge over the course of the year. Through the challenge, many women have been able to celebrate praises, ask for prayerful support in a time of need, grow in their knowledge of His Word and will for their lives, made new friends in the Body. Truly the blessings abound.
I’m looking forward to continuing in Divine Design as a participant next year, but I’m turning the hostessing over to two wonderful, capable ladies. I am sure you are familiar with them! Nancy Morgan and Angel Wilde have such sweet spirits and an authentic desire to serve the Lord. I have enjoyed their creations over the year, and I learn so much through their sharing. I’m blessed to know them as friends.
Over at Splitcoast, the idea has caught on, and we’ll be adding another Scripture inspired challenge next year. Patter Cross is no stranger to Scripture challenges, and she will be hosting a different kind of challenge twice a month called, His Holy Name. You can read about the idea HERE. I’m certainly looking forward to participating in this one when I can, as well. We’re never too learned or old to grow in His will for us.
On behalf of my sweet, sweet girlfriends, Jami, Taylor, Angel and Nancy, thank you for participating with us, creating, commenting, praying for us and following Divine Design this year. We’ll look forward to sharing many more sweet reflections with you in 2009.
Blessings to you this Christmas and always ~ Lori
