Calendar Cards

Here are some cut-and-paste greeting cards. Most are made from an old calendar, and the bird one is from a magazine. The faces bring cheer to me. Do you think so, too?

Instead of using color card stock, I can use a dual brush pen to color around the edges of white card stock on the front of the card.

Moms

There are lots of kinds of moms. Big moms and little moms. Good-cook moms and microwave moms. Moms who like to play and too-busy moms. Moms who tell bedtime stories and give lots of hugs. Moms who don’t. Moms who make sure you practice the piano and moms who don’t care.

I hope you have/had a kind mom.

Anyway, for right now, I will pretend I am your mom and say, “I will love you forever! You are so precious! I’m so glad you are mine!”

Hard Trials

(Inside, the card reads: Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.)

 

Nothing Between

Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
naught of this world’s delusive dream;
I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.

Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
habits of life, though harmless they seem,
must not my heart from him ever sever;
he is my all, there’s nothing between.

Nothing between, like pride or station;
self or friends shall not intervene;
though it may cost me much tribulation,
I am resolved, there’s nothing between.

Nothing between, e’en many hard trials,
though the whole world against me convene;
watching with prayer and much self denial,
I’ll triumph at last, there’s nothing between.

Refrain:

Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
so that his blessed face may be seen;
nothing preventing the least of his favor;
keep the way clear! let nothing between.
