The first pic here are the bookmarks Debbie made. So beautiful. I love them! The second are a sample of Carol Jean's bookmarks. I say sample because she used a different verse on each one. I love those too! The third is of some altered trivia cards that I did up. I did take one final picture of all of them together. I wept. I am so blessed at the thought of being able to deliver all of these salt leaks to Crestwood Nursing Home. There are enough for each patient to receive one. PTL!!!
I must tell you that I struggled a bit making mine. I didn't realize it at first, but I do think it was because of the emotional nature of it, and the fact that I was making these "in memory" of Grammy. Of course, the last donation we made there over a year ago now, she was still living. She physically couldn't verbalize the Gospel to people anymore, so she was thrilled with the salt leaks. It was a different thing though to bless the home there with her living, and now to give things in her memory.
So, I have a call in to Lynette the social worker, and will be dropping these off by week's end to her. Prayers appreciated!!
I did hear a God whisper in all of this, and I did make mention of it before. I could really use your prayers on this. Grammy had an amazing roommate for 3 years. The night before Grammy passed, she pleaded with my family to still come and visit her. THAT request is firmly planted in my mind. So, I want to make her a card, so that I can write a huge thank you note inside. I want to hand deliver this to her. The difficulty here is that, of course, she is still in the same room where Grammy passed. I am having a hard time right now thinking of walking into that room. I KNOW God wants me to though, and that only He can provide the strength to do so. I really would appreciate your prayers about this though! Thank you! Love to all.
