Many Thanks

When I say many thanks, here, I mean two things. First of all I needed to thank many people, and secondly, I made many cards. I had some fun with my Tombow dual brush markers and you can see by the marks on my desk pad that I made a bunch of cards. I made 30 all alike, then the one at the bottom, separately.

The 30 cards were for 30 amazing people who showed up on a hot Sunday morning to do yard work for my Dad who lives next door. He and I had been caring for my mom, and he had been unable to keep up with the yard. The people brought chain saws, a tractor, loppers, a four wheeler to haul a trailer, clippers, shovels, and other tools. The amount of work that they accomplished was phenomenal. Words cannot really express how much what they did was appreciated.

The lower card was made for a special friend of mine in appreciation for some lovely gifts. This is a new friend who I have not even yet met in person! We became friends due to God-arranged unique circumstances. Thanks to texting, we are getting to know each other and look forward to meeting face to face in November.

Pass These Out

Today’s envelope art…Smile.jpg

Smiles–easy to give and easy to take.

One day I was in line at Walmart behind a husky guy with a big gun on his belt. I was contemplating that gun and wondering what kind of guy he was. It was a bit intimidating. However, after he checked out, he turned around and flashed me a big smile! I was surprised and delighted. That smile changed my thoughts all around.

 

 

 

Joyful Music

Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.

For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

Psalm 96:1-6
