(Saying hello with this card.)
Had a fantastic time in Calella on the Spanish coast. Our apartment was spacious, just facing the sea, so a morning dip was just the right recipe to wake up. The sea was crystal clear and we watched numerous fish waiting to be fed by the local folk. DH had reserved a bigger apartment in faith this year as we hoped our eldest son Rodney would join us... and he did. We celebrated his 22nd birthday together.
It was a time planned by the Lord as René (my DH) led him to Christ a day before his birthday! Many years of prayer and proclaiming the promises of God's Word seemed to come to their fulfillment in God's chosen Time on His Clock. Many, many people have been praying for this for years and we are so so thankful for the miracle of the forgiveness of sins and the removal of the barrier between God and man through the Cross of Jesus Christ. Rodney said he always knew deep in his heart that it was true and will be joining our youngest son Michaël in September for the Bible School for discipleship in Holland. Thanks go to Nancy Kreuger too, who I want to mention as she has been standing by us in prayer too for at least two years, praying for Rodney. Thanks Nancy!
This is the view we had from our balcony.
I found time to play with stamps, paper and ink, mostly in the mornings as the guys liked to sleep in. I had taken all my scraps with me, some new stamps, scissors, glue and my distress inks. I think I found the most pleasure in cutting out shells and butterflies which I made with every kind of scrap paper I had!
By the end of the second week I had three times as much as this.
