Peek at My Week

It's Friday - well, it is now that you're reading this. When I put this post together, it was Wednesday. LOL! Then, on Thursday night in a hotel after a l-o-n-g day of driving, I edited this post.  Now that you're reading this I am hundreds of miles from home.

Speaking of my long day of driving.... something amazing happened. Take a look at my odometer...

Yes, my car reached 100,000 miles on May 19 at 12:46 PM (CST).

So, what else has been happening this week? Whew! It has been a busy one. In anticipation of being gone for a week or more, I had lots of cards that needed to be made - a swap of 10, design team responsibilities, etc. I made 25 cards this week - and that was Saturday through Wednesday. Just think what I could have accomplished with 7 days. LOL! (BTW, I also put together 11 blog posts on Wednesday so things would run smoothly here in blogland while I'm gone.)

Here's one of the cards I made this week:

It's a wobble-head kitty. I made it for my great niece (she just finished 3rd grade). She just so happens to have a grey kitty.

I also started a 21-Day Challenge this week; the purpose is to equip us - and MOTIVATE us - to share our faith stories with people we come in contact with. Each day we read 3 or so pages and have some questions to answer. AND we are encouraged each day to tell our story to someone we encounter. I've learned some things about myself this week and I've also "owned up to" some things I already knew about myself. For instance, I know I'm not good at Scripture memorization... so I'm working on memorizing 2 Peter 1:3 - "His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness." I am trying to be a good steward of what He has given me... and one way is through telling my story when opportunities arise.

 SCORE TIME: Would I give this week a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”?

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Please be sure to come back tomorrow for a VERY VERY SPECIAL blog post!!!

Safe driving Jeanette - and what a gorgeous and super cute card! Love the kitty stamp. As for making 25 cards in that short time frame, you must be a machine, never mind preping all those blog posts!
Your 21 day faith sharing challenge sounds awesome.
