Faith

Hello!  Angie, here today with a card to share combining two stamp sets, Faith and Parisian Postcard
 One of my sweet friends and I get together as often as possible to hang out at the bookstore enjoying books, good conversation and drinking coffee!  We shop together, and eat out from time to time as well but our favorite thing to do is the bookstore and coffee!  On Sunday we had one of our bookstore visits and she shared with me the sad news that she may have cancer.  We both shed tears as we chatted. 

 As I added layers of color to this card I kept thinking of our conversation and her words of Faith. My friend shared her thoughts with me, that she knew none of this was a surprise to God.  Her Faith was secure because she knows WHO holds her future.


As I added the finishing touches on this card I received a text from my friend.  Although her levels are high and she will need to go on meds there is no sign of cancer!!!  What a delight to pour my heart and prayers into this card and then to receive such happy news just before placing my butterfly as the finishing touch!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
