Believe

Hello! It's Thursday, and time for an Inspired Stamps card.

My card is titled "Believe" and it comes with a little story...  For weeks, my father (his Alzheimers condition is now medium/severe) has been very weak, tired and mostly incoherent.  One day last week, during our daily chat (we often talk about what makes him glad and what he's concerned about), my dad said he's been thinking about a Pastor friend of his.  Unknown to my dad, the Pastor is currently undergoing some difficult times.  I encouraged my dad to pray for his friend, and so he did.  My dad's prayer was Amazing, because the words he uttered were so coherent & fluent, so relevant and fitting for the Pastor's situation.  It was a wonderful reminder for me that day, that God can move anyone whose heart is open to Him to pray and intercede for His people.

Here's my card:

... and for the first time, I managed to decorate the inside too...

I Adore this cute Inspired Stamps character, Mark.  He's a joy to colour!  The My Mind's Eye paper is so pretty and it had a fabulous label where I could stamp the sentiment "Believe".  The stamp sets I used are Mark Praying and Perfect Sentiments.  

Please do visit the Inspired Stamps blog to see all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks for coming by today, and I hope your day is wonderful!

This is so beautiful and your story about your Dad is precious. I, too, believe that God can reach the deepest places in our loved ones who suffer from Alzheimers. Prayers for you and your Dad!
