Valjs September Desktop





I was wanting a new desktop for my puter and decided to make my own.:) Then I couldn't decide which one to offer... so I decided to offer them both and let you decide which one you wanted. They are 1280x800 but I am pretty sure it will do just fine if you need to squeeze it to make it smaller.LOL
Here is the link to the top one:

    I was searching Biblegateway.com to see what scriptures I wanted to read this morning and this scripture verse was on the front page. It is one of my favorites too!:) The Lord has shown me that the more I put my trust in HIM..the more he PROVES to me ..that he can be trusted.!!! :)
    In these troubled times..we need to know that if we put our trust in the Lord.He will give us a peace that passeth all understanding. All throughout the bible ..the Lord asks his people to trust him.What kind of relationship would we have with our spouse..if we didn't trust them and ..that is the question for today...what kind of relationship can we have with our Father..the CREATOR of the universe...if we don't trust him? Think about it...my FATHER created the universe and I wonder if he can take care of the little things???? How silly is that?LOL
    Jim (DH) said the Lord showed him when he was young..that the higher he can place God...and then place him even higher than that...would show him a glimpse of how GREAT he really is. :) God IS in control and we who trust in him..will be blessed because we can live in a peace that only comes from him.

    I always try to compare our trust with the story of Peter and him walking on the water. As long as he had his eyes focused on the Lord...he could walk on the water.It was only when he took his eyes off of the Lord..that he began to sink. He started watching the waves...and that is what we are doing if we are getting stressed and worried about the awful things that are going on around us today. We are focused on the waves and not on the one who is in control of them. By the way...people always look at Peter as a failure at this time because he failed in his quest to walk out to Jesus..but I look at it like...WOW!! he actually walked on the water!!!! Even if only a few steps..THAT was an insight for him.He became powerful in the Lord ...and I believe part of that was because of this insight. To keep his eyes on the Lord!! :)

    So..with all this said..I only have one thing to suggest to you ...and that is....

    Don't watch the waves!!!

    I just wanted to show you a couple of brag book pages I made using Jaelop Designs Summer Vacation Kit.It's a freebie on her blog. Her link is in my side bar.If you have never been there before..oh..my...what you are missing.She makes some really wonderful kits!:) There are so many more elements and frames etc in this kit that I haven't tried YET.:) How fun!

    The second brag book page would be really great for beach pic..but..since I don't live by the beach..and haven't got many pics of the times we were on the beach..then the pool pics will have to do.hehe

    These pages are of my son, Robby and his daughter Carrie..playing in the pool. The bottom one is of his daughters and his sister in law..playing in the pool.:)

    Thanks for looking.:) Now..go see Jaelop Designs and get her kits.:)

    I can't believe my Great Niece will be turning three years old this weekend.She is such a pretty little girl.I love her pose in this pic. This is her most recent one.I just got it last week.:) I had a few more minutes and made another layout.But this time I made it in a smaller scale..so I am not offering it as a freebie.Unless you would like it in the size I started making my designs....way back in 2006.LOL Click on the pic for a closer view to see her better.:)

    I bet you won't find another one like this.LOL I was playing this morning..oh..I know..the date on the page is wrong..hehe..but I already had it uploaded to 4shared and figured it wouldn't hurt to leave it.:) If any of you can use a Funky girly page..you are welcome to this one.! I decided to leave room on the page for you to add whatever kind of elements you desire..to personalize it.
    It's been a while hasn't it? At the moment I am not planning on doing this on a regular basis.I am just in a place right now..where I have a few minutes and thought I would share.:) Hope you like it.!

    Here it is:

    Today is Jim and my 38th Wedding Anniversary. This is the very first pic that was taken of us together. For those of you who may be reading about this for the first time..I will just tell you ..that I was thirteen and Jim was fourteen when we started going together.I had just recently moved across the street from him when ours eyes met and that was it for us.hehe

    This is the best I could do with our Wedding pic.It sure has aged.LOL I was seventeen and Jim was eighteen when we got married.:) A sweet lady in our church ..made this gown for me. Didn't she do a fantastic job!!!!

    This is us trying to make it to the car without being "riced" to death.LOL I couldn't believe the amount of rice that kept falling out of my hair that afternoon.hehe

    This is our most recent pic together.Our vacation pic from the other day.:) Jim has recently shaven his beard.I am fifty five and Jim is fifty six. A lifetime of being BEST OF FRIENDS!:)

    I LOVE you Jim, and always have! Literally..hehe Happy Anniversary!

    Love,
