Gail's Sticky Post

WE WILL NEVER FORGET!
Sept 11, 2001
God Bless these Families and
God Bless America



Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.
 2 Chronicles7:14


WELCOME to my Blog 
 I like Paper
This is where I post my paper creations.
And I do Like Paper, but
 I LOVE Jesus!
I am a Christian who is not ashamed of the Gospel
Jesus loved us so much He was willing to bear our sins on the Cross
I am saved by Grace and not by works - it is all about Jesus!
