Hi everyone, hope everything is going well. I am doing well, but hot, it is HOT in Arizona. Well today I wanted to try two challenges. Of course using Close To My Heart stuff.  I chose the Pemberley paper pack I really love the colors in this pack. The stamp is Card Word Puzzle #C1494 and pop dot to stand out a littel bit.  The lace flower and button is Bohemian Assortment #Z1687, the lace is from CTMH stash and the strip of paper came from the edge of the B & T paper.The card is Colonial White Circle cards and I cut the next layer with my Cricut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge. 
This was my first time using the circle card and I really liked using the Cricut to cut out the next layer.
I am still trying to get good pictures with my camera, but I don't think the pictures look as good as they should. I am going to keep practicing my photography.
The two challenges are Heart 2 Heart Challenge and Mojo Mondays.

Here are some more pictures using the Pemberley paper pack;
I didn't make these but just wanted to share them with you.

Don't forget to check my monthly contest. The link is located at the top.

No Tears in Heaven

No Tears in Heaven
~ by Ferna Lary Mills

There are many things in life that no one understands,
like why a life so very young can slip right through our hands.
One moment life is perfect and the next it falls apart,
leaving us with nothing but an eternally aching heart.

Our souls cry out in agony amidst the suffering and despair.
We feel the pain and tear our clothes and scream "It’s just not fair!"
Spirits are now shattered. Hearts will never be the same.
We grasp at straws and seek to find the one who is to blame.

Horrific as our life now seems, one thing remains quite true.
Our little ones have now been freed to do things angels do.
They can't recall the suffering of those last days they were here.
They remember not the sorrow, the hurt, nor the fear.

There are no tears in Heaven. No more sorrow. Only Joy.
Heaven is filled with peals of laughter from each little girl and boy.
We can only try to imagine, in spite of all earthly wrongs,
our little angels are learning the words to the Angel's songs.

Amidst the children's laughter and their Heavenly play,
there's also more important work going on there today.
Jesus is building mansions, never taking time to sleep,
for Reunions are being planned, yes, even as we weep.

The children gather around Him and listen to Him speak,
for He has all the answers that they curiously seek.
He tells them for a time, in Heaven, they must wait,
and then they can greet us at Heaven's pearly gate.
