I am just completing a big commission project of 30 hand painted Christmas ornaments of illustrations that I have done from the Old Time Radio show called the Cinnamon Bear.
You can see my favorite character from the series, Snapper Stick the Crocodile. I am just about done with the finishing touches on the project and took some time out to experiment with a first card idea. Eventually they will all become cards for various occasions.
I was thinking about what I do when I get snappy. I do often take a bath. It might be why I like this character - I can relate. The bath gives me some time away so I don't take my grumpy mood out on my family. It is good to allow the Lord in even when we are discouraged or grumpy. He is not just a fair weather friend. We serve a God who is not un-done because we are having a bad day, even when we are mad at him. Anyway I've collected some verses for you that may be helpful to remember when you are having a stressed out snappy kind of day.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Philippians 4:6,7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
