A Thank You





Your prayers
your support
your encouragement
your sharing of experiences
and
your love
meant so much to me during the past month.

I was amazed by the number of friends who have traveled the same journey.
You stepped into it with grace, fought your way through with miraculous strength,
and learned how to fly.

You bared your heart
embraced me with hugs
lent comforting words
and
shared calming scripture.

You touched my heart over and over again
and ultimately blessed me.

Because of your purchases of my Sacred Hope Hearts,
I will be donating over $100 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.




Thank you so much.




And in complete and utter gratitude,
I want to do something for you ~
you sisters-in-Christ who are so gracious and kind.

I am giving one of you a copy of Rachel Ashwell's new book,

"Couture Prairie and Flea Market Treasures". 




All you need to do is be a follower of my blog.




Just leave me a comment and let me know you are.
You can also share it on your blog sidebar if you'd like.




I will do a random drawing.









You love
and
are loved.


~  Blessings  ~


[Oh, and here is the latest addition to the Heaven's Walk Dream Catcher Collection.
Introducing....."Winter Willow".
An 8" natural willow ring frosted with white streamers, wooden beads, sparkling crystals, and snowy white stones.  A soft, natural beauty whispering of quiet winter days. ($45)

  7. Oh sweet pea,...please don't count me in (and I DO love Rachel!), but you needed and deserved all of these prayers and I would always do it from the bottom of my heart with no thought to a thank you/. That's not to say you shouldn't want to give your sweet thanks to someone...you have such a big heart.

    I continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers, Laurie.

    XO,
    Jane

  28. My prayers continue to be with you. I feel a bit overwhelmed as it seems so many lovely people are suffering so much right now and all I can do is cry out to The Lord for all of you! Thank you for the chance to win this book, I have been eyeing it since it was available for pre-order, but I can't afford it. It goes to show how sweet you are, that in the midst of your own trials, you are doing this for someone else. God bless you.

  50. These past two months I've been MIA from the blog world. It breaks my heart that I didn't know what was going on with you and at least send you an encouraging word. You are so very special to me and so many here online.

    Recently our pastor gave a sermon on falling into Jesus arms and trusting he will catch you. He called my 6' 4" son up to the front and asked Tyler if he trusted him to catch him. Tyler said yes and turned around. When the pastor said "ready," Tyler took a peek around before letting himself fall back into our pastors arms. Of course the congregation laughed at Tyler's peek, but we all got the point. The fear is just you peeking back to see that Jesus is really there. He will catch you. You hang in there and keep trusting my friend.

    Hugs,
    Deborah
