Salt - Life to the Full

This week at SALT it's Casey to set the challenge
the theme she has chosen is "Life to the Full."
This theme comes from the verse John 10:10b where Jesus says that He has come so we may have life and have it to the full (or in abundance)!

ok..for my piece, I looked up a couple of translations, and felt the 'message' version jumped out at me so that's what I went with, "I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of".

I'm so excited to be part of this fabulous group of ladies Lythan has pulled together, this is our second challenge at Salt, & we hope you'll come and Join us!

also, I've been missing in action a bit in blog land because after Georgia became sick, we all fell like a pack of cards, each of us in our family of 5 have all been quite sick and are still recovering... I'm off on retreat tomorrow afternoon for the weekend so am hoping to be much better for that, could really do with a weekend of Scrapping :O)

so I'll catch you all when I get back, have a wonderful weekend whatever you plan to do, and after our week, I wish you all GOOD HEALTH!!!
