No Wheelchairs In Heaven

Challenge #28 All Things Have Become New

Hi, it’s Tracey S. here to share our May challenge with you. Spring is my favorite time of the year with new life springing up all around. A verse I learned many years ago at vacation bible school is 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” It’s a verse I often reflect and meditate on. I find that my life is constantly changing, and our Lord wants me to put away the old things and embrace the new. 

For this month’s main challenge we would like you to share a project that represents something new in your life. You can reflect on a new relationship, a new phase of life, an event that brought change into your life, a new job, hobby, volunteer opportunity, or even a book or Scripture verse that has given you new insight. God blesses us with everyday miracles - sometimes big and sometimes small - that bring change and new opportunities to our lives. Your project doesn’t need to be about a recent event, but needs to represent something new in your life.

SCRAP TWIST: USE SOMETHING ON YOUR PROJECT THAT IS MORE THAN A YEAR OLD - THE OLDER THE BETTER, "AND" SOMETHING NEW TO YOU IN 2013. These supplies may be purchased, given to you, or even found objects. Be sure to tell us in your project blog post what these supplies are. 
Here's mine:

the flowers and stickers are more than a year old...the butterflies I just bought at the CKC convention last month. The poem "No wheelchairs in Heaven" reads like this:
Life isn't always easy
Sitting in a wheelchair.
Sometimes I get discouraged
And loaded down with care.
That's when I lean on Jesus to
Help me through the day.
For He gives me peace and comfort
When trials come my way.
The Bible says there is a place
That someday I will see,
Where there will be no sickness
Or pain to bother me.
I'll walk upon a street of gold,
Glorious beauty I will share,
In a place called Heaven, where
I will need no wheelchair.
