Wishing You Love, and much more

Good morning, friends!  It is Sunday, March 22, 2020.  I would normally be getting ready for church right now, but as it is everywhere, church will not be happening in our sanctuary.  My pastor created a message on YouTube for us to watch, and although it's not the same as being with church family, it ministers to my heart and spirit. 💓

This morning I received an email from a sweet woman who subscribes to my blog via email.  She said that my recent batch of posts uplifted her, especially considering what is going on in the world right now with the COVID-19 pandemic; plus, my other regular blog posts had been so far in the past.  Thank you so much for writing to me. 💗 If I can help in a small way to encourage others, just by sharing things I've made, well, it humbles me and fills my heart with gratitude.

Here are some cards to share today:

Had to turn the card a bit so you could see the gold patterned paper.  It shines so beautifully in person!

My youngest daughter is a high school senior now.  Her class trip to Disney World would have started tomorrow.  To say she is disappointed is an understatement.  We also had to cancel our family trip to Mexico for April.  I am not complaining.  We have so much to be thankful for. The situation we suddenly found ourselves in has caused us all to reevaluate priorities.  Family is so very important.  I hope that people embrace one another -- not with arms, not right now! -- in their hearts.  I am encouraged to see the kindness in others rise up and shine.  May it continue during this extraordinary time.

God bless you and keep you, and make His face to shine upon you,

Oh how pretty are these! I especially love the first mom card, the purple-y one. I feel bad for you daughter as I do so many of the seniors who are missing out on all of those wonderful high school traditions. Maybe someday they can look back on it and give thanks to God for seeing them through.
