Hello and Welcome to Beyond Measure!  We'd absolutely LOVE to hear from you whether it be input, encouragement, constructive criticism, videos or no, how's life, a prayer request, or a big howdy do!  

Have you ever had so many things served to you that the thought of, "How will I ever get all of this done?" runs across your mind? Or you were dealt something in life that is HUGE like maybe organizing a big production---that you've not done before and it gives you the willies as to "how is this ever going to happen?" YES.

Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Put My yoke upon your shoulders-it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves.  Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest.  For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light. Matthew 11: 28-30 (the voice)

We must try our best to not focus on the mountain, but on the creator OF the mountain. Truth be known, WE cannot do it on our own, so why continue to put the burden on our shoulders when it's not our own to carry?  How do we rid ourselves of the heavy yoke? (the one we placed upon ourselves rather than the one that is perfectly fit for our curves) Take in a slow deep breath of His cleansing love, release  the yucky 'air' and place it at His feet.  Then we must seek Him first---on everything. Keeping our focus on Him will enable us to experience Matthew 11: 28-30.  Until next time. . . . . . . .be blessed

 This gift project is super fast, nice n’ easy to do!  ( and you thought I was going to talk about hair color :)  Seriously– you can complete this project from beginning to end in approximately 30 minutes- maybe less:) I’m sure that I’ll make more of these in the future.

Even though this was created for a precious baby boy’s nursery, you can adapt this project for many special gift occasions.  If you desire to make this for a girl, here’s an idea to add a feminine touch:  how about attaching a sweet little ribbon to the back of the frame and tying a bow in the center to conceal the nail?  A gift like this can be very heartwarming as it’s quite apparent that it was made especially for the recipient!!

FYI-the frame was purchased at a thrift store and then painted with white spray paint. (this frame was black) If you paint your frame, make sure to disassemble the ‘insides’ from the frame. This enables you to paint the frame with ease.
