Fellowship of Scrapbookers, Lexington, South Carolina!
Create your own video slideshow at animoto.com.
Throughout the three years we made friends, met anywhere from MaryJo’s home to the Lexington Presbyterian to our favorite place with so much character, the Watershed.
I wish I had room to post everyone’s photo on my blog that has participated in Fellowship. I am thankful for all the charity crops that everyone jumps in and works so hard to participate and give. We have collected socks, toys, and now July 31st we will be collecting and making cards for Operation Write Home and our Heroes. If you are interested in attending email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Another important part of Fellowship is God’s Word. I have been and will always be thankful for Ruth’s devotions. The following devotion is from what we thought would be our last meeting of Fellowship. God has other plans.
Snapshots from God
There is an amazing snapshot of our Heavenly Father’s Son who was to come and “journaled” hundreds of years before He actually made His timely appearance on earth. It is recorded in Isaiah 53. “He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” This passage in the Bible also describes us and why He was to send His Son. “We all, like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” The hardest picture to look at is the one that follows…”He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth”. Oh what grace and mercy has come when God gave His only Son Jesus who dies in our place that we may be forgiven and saved.
Thank you, Fellowship, LPC, and Watershed for what has been nearly three years of absolute joy. I hope you will join us one Saturday to enjoy what I already know is truly a fun experience.
