This past week was a difficult week for my family and friends. We all said our goodbyes to our Mother and Friend. We are so happy she is finally at peace and in the arms of God. Saying goodbye is never easy and I think it is the hardest for those left behind.
I was reminded yesterday as I was creating some cards for this week that although my Mother is no longer here with me she is definitely with me in spirit.
I placed an order for the “Faith Journey Prints” and the coordinating “God is Light”, “Through the Storm” and the “Trust The Lord” stamp sets when I saw them on the April Special at 35% off. They had been on my wish list but I never seemed to get them ordered.
When my ordered arrived we were in the midst of hospice and everything going on so I told my son Dean to bring the box down to my stamp room; I would open it later.
Well yesterday was that day. Wow, when I opened up my stamp sets and read each one I was so GLAD I ordered all three of these stamp sets! Each set has a special meaning to me now more than ever. I knew right away I had to create some cards with these stamp sets and the coordinating “Faith Journey Prints”.
I have to tell you when our Pastor was visiting my Mom in hospice he asked her what her favorite Bible verse was and she said; John 11:35 “Jesus Wept” only because it was the shortest verse; going to a Christian School we had to memorize Bible Verses all the time so the shorter the better. Hahaha! She then said her favorite was Psalm 23 “The Lord is My Shepard”. We all had to memorize this Bible verse and I remember helping my kids to memorize it and it is my favorite and most remembered verse as well.
When I opened up the “Faith Journey Prints” and was looking at these gorgeous prints the last print in the package was this:
Psalm 23 “The Lord is My Shepard”. It brought tears to my eyes as this was my Mother’s favorite verse and I knew she was with me. I hadn’t paid much attention to this printed package in the catalog I just knew it coordinated with the stamp sets.
I wish I had opened up this package before the funeral as this print is so beautiful I would have framed it and had it out during the visitation. It is now going in a photo album all about Mom and Grandma.
I also had to create a card using this print and the “God is Light” stamp set.
I’m so in love with this paper pack and these stamp sets and I know my Mom was with me as she helped me to crank out quite a few cards yesterday. You will be seeing them all this week.
Who would have thought a stamp set and some printed papers could lift me up so much!
