When AMEN Designs was started, I wanted to make Christian scripture prints easily available to people. Printables was a good format in the sense that you could print it yourself from your home, which makes it convenient. Secondly, if you require the services of your local printer, then I am helping to support your local businesses too, which is something close to my heart.
AMEN’s printables come with a personal license by default, this also means you can print as many as you like so you can gift your family and friends with encouraging words, so long as no commercial gain has been made.
The other advantage of purchasing AMEN’s printables is the ability for customisation. You can choose colours to match with the decor of your home. This service is free of charge with AMEN Designs. So here’s how:
Choose your printable. For example,
Choose your colours from this colour chart.
Put your printable in the shopping cart, when you check out, please leave your request in “note to seller”. Once the order has been received, I will make the changes and then email the revised files to you. Please allow 48 hours turnaround time.
If you do not have a printing facility where you are, you can always purchase a print, that mean I print it and ship it to you. If you have any questions, please email me at hello[at]amendesigns.com.
Stress is a part of life, and it’s crucial to understand how it might occur in our life and how we can manage it. I had a great story about what stress usually is for most of us. Hope you enjoy and get something out of it!
The True Meaning of Stress
A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience; with a raised glass of water, and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘half empty or half full?’
She fooled them all. “How heavy is this glass of water?”, she inquired with a smile. Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance.
In each case it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, ”and that’s the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry
“As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we’re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden of holding stress longer and better each time practiced. So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Pick them up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you’re carrying now, let them down for a moment. Relax, pick them up later after you’ve rested. Life is short. Enjoy it and the now ‘supposed’ stress that you’ve conquered!”
My friend Bryan (of Beautiful Gatherings) built a little free library a short while back. It is there in a quaint residential neighbourhood in Singapore standing under the shade of a mango tree. It has been a space to engage people into a sharing community, and we thought we would share a little nugget of positivity.
It really is Bryan’s idea. I got roped in to be conspirator.
“And those who found the joy of giving, are usually happier.”
I’m hoping to be able to have more opportunities to leave some positive messages around. Watch this space!!
