Season of Grieving

Unfortunately this has been a difficult season of grieving for our local church family.

Melissa's theme this week is the perfect motivation for me since I've been wanting to stamp a special card for at least one of these families.

When there are no words...I thank God for the stamping tools and sentiments to do,

well, at least something.

I know this has been a difficult, difficult season for friends of mine...deaths of people,
deaths of marriages, deaths of dreams.

I don't know about you, but much of my energy has been dedicated to prayer because there is just

so much pain going around right now.

I'm grateful I'm not alone and know that you aren't either.

The power of prayer will see you and your friends through the darkness, Marlena. My wishes for a brighter New Year.
Your card is lovely and the sentiment is very comforting.

Sending warm hugs and positive thoughts your way, Marlena. Your comment - about being grateful to have stamps and sentiments to 'do something' for people who are feeling the strains of life - is so refreshing. I agree: sometimes the seemingly smallest of gestures have a profound impact. Your comment on my recent post is precisely that; your words of comfort mean more than I have words to express. Today will be difficult. Very. Your strength will give me strength to support my mom...
Hugs, hugs and hugs!
