All Glory To God

Hey everyone! Well, I am happy to say Autumn got home yesterday! She had a great time! Thank you all for the prayers for their safety! I am so excited to tell you the AMAZING news I heard yesterday! I got an email from Ms. Susan Opel from Paper Crafts yesterday with a Project Acceptance Notification! I submitted 18 cards and they choose 3! I submitted to CARDS magazine in June and never heard anything, so this time I submitted to Paper Crafts and submitted even more cards, determined to get at least one published! I was starting to feel discouraged, because today is the last day to hear something. So when I checked my email last night, I thought I was just seeing things and I almost started crying! :) They will be in the March/ April 2010 issue! I just want to say Thank You to all of those who have encouraged me and believed in me! And for all of those who want to submit, but are still unsure, just do it! You have to believe in yourself, before anyone else can believe in you! I am just starting to understand that concept for myself! I give ALL GLORY TO GOD!!! He is my Strength and my Salvation!! He gives me the vision to do this! When I started this blog, I prayed for God's light to shown through my life and work! I thank God for the opportunity to let more people see Him through me and the gift He has given me! I feel like this is an acceptance speech, but it is just me sharing my heart!
Thank You all and have a Blessed day!
