Hello, hope everybody is doing well!
Just got back from a Wedding in the U.K. on Monday evening. Had a very nice time with family and friends and it was refreshing to have a change of air (as they say in France) and have a break from the routine.
I have an update on Rodney which I will share after the cards.
Sometimes its good just to look what is lying on your desk and
assemble a card with what you find. For instance, this is what I had on
my desk this morning when I looked through a little pile (see above). At first
glance it doesn't seem to coordinate, but it does as you will below. There is even a little watermark at the top of the patterned paper which I had to cover up with a flower (from the scrap basket).
So this is what the little pile of scraps became. A card to send to somebody with an encouraging message inside!
Then my second card was just lying on my desk unfinished. So, I finished it to add to this post today.
I used some card stock patterned paper as my card base and some free downloads. The big sentiment in the middle is from Hero Arts.
Now a little update. Yesterday we went to see Rodney who is still in Intensive Care. It was a big operation and quite a shock to see him with two big holes in his lower body fitted with bags and tubes to drain all fluids from his intestines, well what is left of them. He has a huge bruise on the right side of his body apparently caused by internal bleeding. It is marked off so that they can monitor its spreading because it has to be stopped. He has a Catheter in his neck for feeding and other fluids and medicines he has to take, as they couldn't find a vein in his arms suitable enough. He has strappings around his legs so as not to get any blood clots.Yesterday he had a temporary intestine paralysis and was in pain. He is attached to a lot of machinery and everything is registered into a computer. He cannot get out of bed, nurses have to wash and help him with everything and he has been in IC for five days now. But he can still talk and laugh and we enjoyed being with him - but oh boy - Please GOD help this guy recover!! It was such a privilege to pray with him and to feel the presence of the Lord in his hospital room!
I have been very encouraged with your feedback and would love to ask for your continued support! Thank you!
