Faith Discovery Challenges {February Highlights}, an ANNOUNCEMENT, and a FREE GIFT!

February is now behind us and we’re now approaching the end of the winter season for most parts of the world. Springtime is starting to make its way back and from where I live, I’m already seeing the changes that are taking place outside. The air is warming up under the sun, flower buds are opening, leaves are starting to sprout from the bare branches, and I’m beginning to see more birds flying around the neighborhood. I guess I’m one of those people that really love to watch the different transitions between seasons and the little changes that take place especially the RENEWAL of life in different forms. It’s something that keeps me reminded of how God renews us when we grow weary or tired, He gives us strength when we need it most, He lifts up our heads when we feel suppressed, He makes us new inside and out. He is our redeemer that keeps us from stumbling and helps us on our journey through life. Every day is a new day, a new beginning. One of my favorite verses that I love to read when I'm feeling spiritually or physically exhausted is in Isaiah 40:31 - "But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint."

Speaking of RENEWAL, I’d also like to make a little ANNOUNCEMENT! I will be taking a few weeks off to take care of some business with housework, family, and my wonderful taxes, so please know that the FAITH DISCOVERY CHALLENGES IS ON BREAK! Spring break that is! I do want you to keep coming back for updates on some new changes and new things that I’m going to be doing when I do return so, please don’t forget to check back in a few weeks! And because I appreciate you all so much for being so wonderful and supportive of me throughout this all, I made a little freebie for you!

Anyways, the Faith Discovery Challenges for February were about things that dealt with love and hopefully gave us a better understanding of God’s amazing love towards us all. It also gave us a chance to remember certain loved ones in our lives who were great examples of Christ-like love, a love that simply surpasses our expectations. To me, it was a challenge to really pick the topics that I felt the Lord wanted to have me share because there’s such a wide range of themes that I could have touched on. But what I came up with was to emphasize the love of Christ and His ultimate demonstration of real, immeasurable, sacrificial, selfless love that nothing in this world can compare to and how we can follow that example. I appreciate all of you who participated and gave me an even greater appreciation for His perfect love, just by reading some of your precious words concerning the love of Jesus. Thank you so much for being a blessing to me as well as to everyone who were touched by it!


Again, I have prepared slideshows for all the layouts created for each FDC challenge in February weeks #4 - #8.
If you’d like to take a closer look at these galleries, please go to our Faith Discovery Challenge Gallery and leave some love for these talented ladies! These layouts were taken directly from our gallery so, if you do have a layout for these challenges that are in a different place in the gallery, please let me know and I will add it in.

A spring break is a great idea! I am also in the throes of taxes,but finishing up hopefully tonight! I want to be totally done and able to focus on what Jesus did for me on the cross as we approach Easter. It is totally a season of reflection and renewal - enjoy your break Dahlia!

O, I wish you a wonderful break!
But I reserve pages for 52 weeks, so I do my own challenge. I have a idea, I make a faith discovery challenge for every week, based on the Scripture Challenge, so the pages of my Faith Discovery Challenges album aren't not empty, is that a good idea? So I will post the challenges on my blog and I'll let you know when, oke?
Have a wonderful spring break!
