"Hey friends! Oh wow. I now have the 81 salt leaks in hand needed for the nursing home where Grammy passed on Dec. 27th! My desire was to reach out there in her memory because of what a totally awesome witness she was there, until her illness robbed her of her ability to speak. Thank you, thank you to Debbie and Carol Jean for helping to make this possible!!!
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.
