What if... now, I should have known it would be tested after I had written it! That same Tuesday afternoon my hubby left for a long ride to Holland for the first time on his motorbike (usually takes 13 hours by car). He likes to visit our friends there, just on his own. Everything went fine. The next day he would stop at Nancy in the North of France and on Thursday continue his journey to the Netherlands. It was 8:30 in the evening and I still hadn't got a phone call to say he had arrived and that is just not like him. He should have stopped at the Hotel around 5 in the afternoon and I had expected a call at least before 7. Then it started... the worrying... what if!! I was getting quite fretful too, and thought that my phone must be out of order. I had been calling René since 7:30 but he didn't answer, so I called a friend, who said, well call his Hotel in Nancy - yes, but which Hotel?? I rang about four hotels, getting all emotional, but he wasn't booked there. Just over 8:30 I gave him another ring and he answered! He had forgotten to tell me that he had decided to go straight to Holland without stopping....!!!!! I was crying on the telephone - how's that for faith then!! It's one thing writing it down, it's another to really trust God. If only I had listened harder for his Voice, perhaps I would have stayed calm.
I will comfort myself in saying that at least I ate my dinner which is pretty clever when you worry! To top it all, just as I was going to treat myself to a lovely 'Magret de carnard', my gas bottle run out. No hubby to change the gas bottle either! My son wouldn't pick up his phone either - needless to say I felt very challenged by the circumstances...lol.
To top it all, the next day my husband says: 'Well it's good for you to learn to stand on your own two feet!'
Now for a little card share: using my new leafy accents stamp
I used versamark embossing powder only on one of the leaf prints, the other is just versmark stamped.
Have a lovely weekend.
