Fear and Anxiety

We pretty much understand the meaning of the word fear. It is a griping emotion that wraps its self around our very being. Anxiety is pretty much the same. Both comes in different degrees. We can have slight fear and anxiety then there is the full-blown kind.

When something bad happens people will often question where was God? Why did he let this happen? God had nothing to do with the bad in the world. God is love. He is not the hate in the world. People have a choice what they do in life. Some listen to the wrong voice whispering in their ear. It causes them to do the wrong choices.

Have you ever been around an angry person? Could you feel the anger from them seemingly seeping into you? If you are around them long you will start to feel angry yourself. Could all that anger be what is disrupting nature around us? Just a wild thought I am sure but, really could it?  

How do we handle all this anger that seems to be around us and causes us to fearful and anxious? One simple thing, God. We must pray about it and hand it over to him. That is the key, hand it over to him and do not look back at it. Do not worry about it. Just have faith he will handle it.

There are so many scriptures that talks about fear and how God is with us and not to fear. Psalms 56:2 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. Philippians 4:6,7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind. Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. I can go on and on. Trust me that God is with his people.

The next time you see something negative and it sends fear or anxiety into your heart, stop and pray. Say a prayer about what is going on and for him to give you peace and to help whatever situation is going on. Remember God is love. He is not the author of confusion. All that anger and fear is not from him. Trust him he will never leave you. He loves you.

Stickers and paint

Are you a planner or a fly by the seat of the pants type of person? I must admit I have been the latter one. Though I have learned to love my planner and get more done by using it.
I believe what got me hooked was the stickers you can use in planners. Oh, the Joy it gives! They are so pretty! It makes making your life organized so much fun.
I started with a love for Bible journaling. I felt like I should be guilty for coloring and painting in my Bible but got over it with the first color that went down.
So, combining both loves and sharing it with the world is just amazing to me.
Stay tuned for some wonderful goodies coming!
Until then have a wonderful day and keep creating!



In the Bible there are several great women but there are only two books in the entire Bible that are solely about women. One is Esther. We are going to take a journey back in time to see her in our mind. Ready? Let’s go! I  have also attached a picture of the page I Bible Journaled on Esther. If you have any questions about the process let me know.  

Xerxes was ruler over 127 provinces that was from India to Cush (upper Nile region). In his 3rd reign he threw a banquet. He allowed people to drink when and how much they desired. In those times you only drank when the king. Since he gave them free reign to drink what they wanted and how much you could say these men most likely was very drunk. The banquet lasted 180 days.
On the 7th day Xerxes requested the Queen Vashti to come to the banquet dressed in only her crown. He wanted to show her off because she was so beautiful. She refused and the king was angry. Of course, who could blame the Queen for not wanting to display herself in…

Planner Stickers

Working away on planner stickers today. Taking a break and decided to write a short blog.

 What planners to you enjoy to use? Do you enjoy the Happy Planners or Erin Condren?

I have both and I enjoy both in its own way.  The HP I have a mini and the regular. I would love to get the large one also. I love my EC. I like the spiral better than the disks on the HP. Even though spirals get in the way sometimes I just enjoy how it opens better. Having the pages removable with the HP is a very good convenience.

What other planners do you use? I am curious and would love to have them all. Yes, I know that realistically I can't buy them all or possibly use them all. It is fun to dream.
