I'm so pleased that you wanted to know a little bit
about the person behind the personalizations *_*
Yes, I'm Caleb's Mom, Jennifer;
and I began creating web graphics in 1997.
I have been making pictures the "old fashioned way" for nearly 4 decades now...
yes, I began drawing before I could "write"!!!
I'm learning more about graphics every day...
and thoroughly enjoying my "continuing education" *_*
So, are you wondering "why"? Why do I make free graphics when the vast majority of graphics sites now charge for the use of their work or personalizations? Well.... I consider my web sites, both Caleb's Country Corner and our family page 4 Seests in Paradise, to be ministry oriented. I have set a goal to minister to the lost through sharing the Truth from God's Word, hymns, and in general a spirit of excellence & Christian charity through my labour of love online. I seek to minister to other believers (those who know Jesus Christ as their Redeemer) by sharing my talents with them, hopefully encouraging them to create a beautiful homepage with their testimony for Christ!
I've been told that the verse "a labourer is worthy of his hire" means that I should not be "giving away" my talents. Although I do charge for *exclusive rights* to my graphics (where someone buys the rights to a set for themselves that no one else can use), I consider the sharing of my linkware graphics to be an investment... not monetarily, but hopefully eternally as I seek to encourage others to share the Gospel on their homepages *_* I know that I may someday have to get a "paying job" to help financially support our family, but *praise the LORD*, thus far in our marriage my husband's income has always taken care of our physical needs! We are both so thankful to God that I can be a "keeper at home" as well as a keeper of the homepages *_*
Since publishing my first book, I also have the hope that the sales of the Christian, historical, romantic fiction books I am writing may in fact help us financially. Otherwise, when Daniel got out of the Navy September '05, I would've had to find a job outside the home. But again, I am still hoping the LORD blesses in my writing endeavors! Plus I am still paid for personalized sets, praise the LORD! That and my writing has been the ultimate... to be paid for what you LOVE to do AND be able to bring glory to GOD doing it!
Whether therefore ye eat,
or whatsoever ye do,
do ALL to the glory of God!
~I Corinthians 10:31~

Caleb's Mom, Jennifer *_*
P.S. In case you are one of those surfers who reads the names of the pages and are wondering what "3ccount" has to do with me... I mean, shouldn't that be countESS? *_* Actually YEARS ago I had counters for the personalizable site counters that USED to be available. They no longer are, and they took up a lot of file space anyhow. I am limited to 3,500 with HomeWithGod. I hover right around 3,490 *o* So anyhow...curiosity satiated? *_*
Take My Life, and Let it Be
Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise!
Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee!
Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee
Filled with messages from Thee!
Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect, and use
Ev'ry pow'r as Thou shalt choose,
Ev'ry pow'r as Thou shalt choose.
Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee!
