Inspired Stamps Scripture Card

The Inspired Stamps project today is a Scripture card.  I suppose one can never have enough Scripture cards to give away.  Times when words fail me, it is always most appropriate to let the Word of God speak.  My card for today, uses the Scripture sentiment from the Thanksgiving set.

Just the other day, a close friend I have not talked to for awhile, contacted me. His wife has just been diagnosed with 4th stage stomach cancer, and they are so devastated.  There were no symptoms and regular medical check-ups did not uncover anything.  I really felt their pain and sadness.  It was also so hard for them to explain to their 3 young girls mum isn't well.

I could only offer to pray for them, and call them regularly as I live so far away.  This incident also reminded me how fragile life is, and to look to God.  Despite illness, difficulties in life, God is still in control.  He is Good, and His lovingkindness never fails.  I hope these friends of mine will find God in this difficult period of their lives.  Please help to pray for them.

Thank you for visiting me. Take care!

I am praying for your friends! You are so right as to the fragility of life and our limited time here. We must keep our eyes on the Lord and live for Him each day we have here. One day, there will be no more pain or suffering, and we hope in our Lord and look forward to that day. Your card is even more beautiful knowing the thought behind it! Much love and thanks to you!

I love the peachy background and the floral lace across the card. Yes.. God's words minister when words fail us.
