Joy is my word of the year. I have tried to focus on JOY even when life has hit some rough spots. After all, joy isn't based on circumstances, it's something we have within. And truthfully, joy - the abiding joy within us - is what brings us through the rough spots as well as what helps us to enjoy the good in our life.

When I received my October Release package from Frantic Stamper I opened it excitedly (as I always do) wondering what I would find. I was DELIGHTED to find the Joy Letters Die #FRA-DIE-10342. JOY!

I am showcasing that die on my blog today - I used it on a card but I also used it on a Bible Journaling page.

Frantic Stamper Dies

Here's my Bible Journaling Page:

Praise the Lord!
For he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
Psalm 28:6-7 (NLT)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Your projects are so beautiful! I think JOY may be my word too! I broke both of my ankles at the end of June and I am so filled with Joy that they are healing properly and that I can walk again!
