Praise Him! Making Earring Charms

Praise Him! What else can I say? Praise Him even when things seem cruddy. This is one lesson that I keep learning again and again, over and over. I must praise Him even when I want to say "Why??? Why me? Why this? What am I to do?" He'll lead me through. He'll lead you too.

I'm making charms for jewelry. These will eventually be earrings. They are brass that I cut, punched the holes and used my wonderful metal stamps and super cool brass hammer to decorate. Fun. I am so very blessed.

I pray you are all well in Blogland...and may my friends who've had to deal with Hurricane Ike be encouraged. And given help and energy~~

Amen! Thank you for the morning inspiration! Have you seen the movie, "Facing the Giants"? The central theme is exactly what you say here: praise Him when you win and praise Him when you lose. Glorify God in everything you do.

Happy Monday!

Oh, praise Him...He is Holy...He is Holy...words from a song from David Crowder just rang thru my ears after seeing your beautiful little earring charms =)
Your stamping is so perfect. I want to be like you when I grow up =)

Those are so pretty---and such an awesome reminder---no matter what---(and I think we've all had our fair share of the "what") We praise His name.

I love you dear friend!

Hi Chris! I just discovered you had a blog! (I'm a bit behind, ha, ha) I always enjoy it when you post your work over at JAN. These little charms are adorable! I'm catching up on my blog, too, and nominating blogs I enjoy for the Brilliante Weblog award (I received one back in July). Hope you don't mind that I nominated yours - here's my post about it.
