This week's main topic is 'Believe',
but I (Esther) also wanted to share with you a verse that
has particularly struck me recently which is taken from
Jeremiah 29:11-13For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.If only we truly believed in God's promises- we would worry so much less. It is such a reassurance to know that we have a great God who is in control of all things.PLEASE TAKE THIS TOPIC OR VERSE AND MAY IT INSPIRE YOU TO CREATE.
This is what I have done, on all the tags are Bible references to verses with the word Believe.

I had this grand plan to move my paper craft things into the computer room as it was taking over the dining room. i had some steps laid out in my head of what needed to be done before I could do this. I didn't mean for it to happen so soon, but I'm on a roll so I'm going with it!

This fortnight at SALT, I (Casey) want you all to think about and maybe create a piece of art that conveys a message of being His princess! When I first heard that term (HIS PRINCESS) I thought it sounded a bit over the top...but then after reading the Bible and listening to other messages, I realised that we are daughters of THE King. So, daughters of a King are referred to as princesses. So, how does it feel for you to be His Princess? We'd love for you to share your "HIS PRINCESS" creations with us. You can do this by simply leaving a comment on our blog, so we can pop over and visit your blog!

Took this pic of Ethan today while we were walking to school, it was a lovely sunny day, and it was the first time this year I've noticed the cherry blossom, can you see it?
When we got home, I was upstairs, and Ethan shouted up to me, he said "Jadon was standing up!", Jadon had pulled himself up holding on to the sofa. Oh dear, I think I may have an early walker on my hands!
