My latest and most exciting news to share with you is that on Sunday – 3rd November 2019 – I’m going to be baptised! I had already chosen three songs I wanted for my baptism, and I needed two more! Yesterday I received a suggested list of four more songs from Caron who’s in charge of the music, singers and songs at our church. I went onto YouTube to check what the songs were and allowed myself to get somewhat carried away! It wasn’t easy deciding which two I preferred but I eventually made my decision.
The last working day of the month is always my busiest day, and yesterday I successfully closed my October Workshop order and sent out my monthly global email. In between doing these two jobs, and after I’d chosen my two songs, I allowed YouTube to run on AutoPlay so I had religious songs playing for the rest of the day. The net result of this was that I didn’t have time to get into my studio for any crafting but it was a very happy day! I’m so excited about Sunday!
The card I am sharing with you is the thank you card I made for my September online customers! I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting.

Many thanks, Sandra. I appreciate your support. These are the songs I’ve chosen: Oh Lord My God, How Great Thou Art; In Christ Alone; My Jesus, My Saviour; Amazing Grace; and The Greatest Day In History (Happy Day). Do you know them? xxx

Jennie Davey says
Hi Jan. I live in South Australia and love receiving your emails. I am also a Christian. On Saturday night my beloved mother passed away and she was the one who faithfully prayed over us all and had the joy of seeing all of us following the Lord before she went. I have only just seen this post but am sure you had a blessed day. Jennie
Hi, Jennie. I’m sorry your Mum has passed away; I know the void this leaves behind. It’s so very re-assuring to know that she’s now in heaven with our Lord. My thoughts and prayers are very much with you and your family. God be with you. xxx
Mary-Ann (Mal) Lynch says
