100th Post - Why Do I Love...

Why do I love to scrapbook?  To relive and preserve those precious memories of family and friends.

Why do I love to make cards and handmade gifts?  To give of myself in a way that shows love and kindness to those I will give the cards/gifts to.

Why do I love to write?  God has brought me through so much in my life that I have such peace and encouragement about how He helps us that I want to share this with others who are going through their own journey.

Why do I love to blog?  Blogging has given me an opportunity to express my thoughts and creativity in hopes that it will encourage someone else in their daily life.

Why do I love to be encouraging?  Life is a gift and when you have been so weak you could not lift up your head and wondered how long you would have this gift of life...then all other days are wonderful days ready to be enjoyed!  Everyone has a story and the need to be encouraged at some time in their life.

Why do I love to smile?  When I'm driving down the road and the sun shines and casts a beam on the side of my face and I feel its steady warmth, its like God is shining His love on me.  This is the type of joy I carry in my heart always because of God and what He has done for me.  Is it any wonder why I love to smile?

Why do you love these things?  I would love to hear your comments and why you love! 


  1. Selina, you are everything you love. I believe your creativity in the cards, scrapbooking and blog is a God-given! You are a difinite blessing to me and I know others too! Keep it up.....I love that there are other Christian women who love the Lord and are not ashamed to share that love! Blessings!

  2. This is so beautiful it almost makes me cry. You are precious in God's eyes and mine.

  3. Selena,
