Fullness of Joy

My first LO today is one I did for a RAK at The challenge word is His Presence and I used Ps. 16:11, "... in thy presence is fulness of joy...". I wanted to do a page that my boys might find comfort in one day. Sadly, we are not accepted by part of our family and it causes alot of pain, but through this trial we have learned to lean more on the Lord and in that we truly have "fulness of joy".
So keeping with the 'joyful' theme, I did this page.
Lots of times I get frustrated with situations such as spilling an entire carton of itty bitty nerds all over the floor or yelling don't get muddy 1 second too late. I know when the kids are grown and moved away, I'm going to long for the excitement (and frustration) they carry with them. So I did this page to remind myself and show my kids that even in these chaotic times I am so thankful for them. They are truly a blessing!!
Have a great Wednesday!

Cute layouts! Yep, I know what you mean... gotta embrace those little muddy moments! One day you'll wake up and the kids will be in college!

LOVE what you did with the page on Presence. Just beautiful. And I am sorry about the family. So hard. Hugs, and I am glad you are doing the challenge with us! There are actually many people not using the ATC holder. I want to do an album now too! :) Have a joyous day!
