Welcome Karen and This Week's Winner!

Hi Friends~  (For some reason, the blog is not allowing proper spacing between paragraphs.  I apologize.  I have tried to fix it for over an hour.)
Today we will announce the Winner of the He IS Able blog's Card Set Give-Away.  And, I would like to introduce our newest member to the He IS Able Prayer Team.
Welcome to the team Karen Conner!  Karen loves to spend time with our Lord, loves to pray, and is a naturally encouraging person. She has been praying for the guests of this blog, for people around the world who have not known Christ Jesus as their Lord to come to the blog and learn about Him, and become to love Him, until they ask Him to be their Savior and Lord, and for any particular needs someone has mentioned.  Karen is someone who you just know will be a loyal friend when you meet her. 
(Even on-line!)
Karen is a Southern girl who was born and raised in South Carolina and Virginia. She has allowed God to be the major influence in her life, and her overall goal is to use the talents He has blessed her with, to be a blessing to others. Karen is a cancer survivor who strives to make the most of every day to bring glory to God.
 She would love to someday teach her craft to others, and she hopes that faithfully maintaining her blog will enable her to share her love for God & art. Karen enjoys using ink and paint to design her cards and layouts. She also loves embellishments of all kinds: ribbon, buttons, charms, lace, etc. She enjoys making cards, as well as mini albums and layouts to house the many memories of her family and friends. She considers her style "shabby chic", and loves giving her art a vintage and distressed look. She also uses acrylic paints occasionally when the urge hits. She is adventurous in her art, and hopes her creations are a blessing to others. She would love to have you visit her blog KRC Masterpiece and introduce yourself so that she can stop by and get inspiration from all of you.  Personally, I just love her unique art, and her blog is always a pleasure to visit.  There is a link to her blog on the right side of this blog.  Just click on it...and you will be there!

Karen is on two Design Teams right now-- The Perfect Sentiment & Word Art Wednesday. WAW is Christian based. We share God's Word each week. The Word Art is FREE. Karen Letchworth is head of that blog & goes from blog to blog encouraging people to add their art. That seems to get our blog to grow.

 Karen, we are so glad that you will be joining us.  We look forward to praying with and for you!  Welcome!
Our Winner of This Week's He IS Able Blog's Card Set Give-Away!*
To be eligible to win you need to leave some sort of comment before Wednesday evening at Midnight. (East Coast)  It starts when the prior Tuesday blog is posted.  The recipient will be randomly chosen from the comments left during that time.  Then a number will be randomly chosen between 1 and 5. The Recipient will receive that number of cards and envelopes mailed to them. 
Sadly, I can only mail items within the United States.  It is just too expensive for me to mail overseas. I am trying to find someone who can make a digital card that I can share with guests who are chosen that live over seas. After all, we have more people from outside the US visiting that in the US.
This Week's Recipient will Receive 3 Beautiful Cards Made and Donated by Fellow He IS Able Blog Guests...That Person Is...

Blessings. That is why I had to get a new computer, my old one just could not take on another thing.

This is one of my most favorite verses. Mercy..and if we are truly born again we can not help but to show mercy to all. For my sins are great and if a heavenly Father is willing to forgive and cleanse me, the lest I can do is to forgive others. Have a blessed day hugs :)

Congratulations, Becky!  Please email me with your snail mail address, and I will get your cards out to you!  My email is
I need to hear from you by next Wednesday at Midnight.  Please do not send your address in the comment section....Leave us any other comment, though!  :)


I hope that you will all join us on Tuesday when we complete our sharing on the second half of the Beatitude, "Blessed are the PURE in HEART, for They will SEE GOD."  (Matthew 5:8)  Please take the time to leave a welcoming comment for Karen...and please remember from now until Tuesday we are having PRAISE DAYS!  Let us know what you are grateful for...what you praise Him for.  God Bless!

He IS Able!

  1. Dear Lord,

    I thank you for the people you have put in my life. They have shown me what true friendship really is.

    In Christ Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

  2. Traci- thanks for introducing Karen. I keep thinking about what I was taught about prayer. God is a good listener and ready to intervene.

    Praying for all the readers needs. Many times they are only in our hearts and not said aloud.


Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts, ideas,prayer requests and comments! We love to read them all! And, if you had a prayer request, the Prayer Team will begin praying for your needs today. God Bless!
