From My Heart - FMH05 - Blessed by God

Hi Stamping Friends!!

Many of you know that my husband graduated from seminary a couple of years and our family moved to North County San Diego to start a church. Can I just say this here amongst friends... Church planting is hard!! But God is so good. Every month He supplies us with the financial means to keep moving forward on this surprising journey.

Each month I send out thank you cards to all of our supporters. This month I had wanted to get the cards out before Easter, but they got mailed the Monday after Easter. Whoops!

Stamps: Blessed by God, Kinda Eclectic
Ink: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Baked Brown Sugar
Paper: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Blushing Bride DSP (retired) 
Accessories: Pear Jewels, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Organdy Ribbon (retired)

I love the name of the this stamp set... Blessed by God, because it is so true!!! We are blessed every day beyond our wildest imaginations. And I also adore this sentiment.

My mom's family has been struck with three unexpected deaths within the last eight months. The latest being my 57 year old cousin who passed away four months after she found out she had cancer.

It is so very important to me that the people in my life know how much they mean to me. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow. So make sure your people know how much you love them and what a blessing they are to you. 

1 Corinthians 13:1-3New International Version (NIV)

13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

It's probably why I love cardmaking so much. Every card I send is like sending a little piece of my heart in the mail. Someone described a handmade card as a hug with a fold in the middle. That makes me smile.

I encourage you to make and mail a card this week for someone important in your life and tell them how much they mean to you. I know it will be the highlight of their week. :)

If you are looking for a daily scripture plan, this is my favorite!! I already filled one journal for the year. SWEET BLESSINGS

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your Sunday!

Thanks Krystal for sharing this beautiful card but above all your love for Christ Jesus. May you and your husband's ministry for Him be fruitful as the Holy Spirit lives and works through you. Thank you for your encouragement in my life today!

I have been considering this stamp set "Blessed by God" as I realized this Easter my stamps are limited for this amazing season of the church year! I love the name too...

Blessings, Dolores
