He FIRST Loved Us!

I looked through my prepared backgrounds
and looked for a person reading.
I found her here!
Do you see her?
She is quite intent with what she found in the Bible!

"Attend my people to my teaching...
I will open my mouth in story,
drawing lessons from of old."
Psalm 78:1

I like the idea of God going down to our level,
telling us stories like we tell stories to our children
so that we will understand the lessons!

"We love Him because He first loved us."
1 John 4:19

He loves us so much that He did 
EVERYTHING so we could know Him
and have a relationship with Him,
and we will be with Him forever!

I finished this little doll last night
and I am soooo happy with how she turned out!
To think I was going to give up on her because
she looked like a little voodoo doll at first!
The little book she has in her velcroed hands
holds prayers.
I will post a tutorial to make her
later this morning at 


Each week I choose one from those who comment
to pick an ATC for me to send them
as a thank you!
I so appreciate your taking the time
to comment!
I know how time consuming it can be!!!
