Altered Devotional Book

Howdy Crafters:

I Altered a composition book that I am using for devotionals with hubby.  Last week Rick and I saw the movie War Room - it is a very inspiring movie and focuses on the fact "The Battle belongs to the Lord."   We downloaded the 7 Day Devotional based on the War Room Movie and together we are implementing those scriptures and discussing into our daily devotional.  I am so thankful for this movie as it has encouraged me to Remember - the Battle belongs to the Lord and not to me. Thank you Jesus for this reminder through this movie.
Thank you crafters for stopping by and have a blessed day! ~ Gail !~
