Stampin' Sisters in Christ

I was so glad to see the challenge for today on Stampin' Sisters in Christ to make a card telling someone you are praying for them. I have a very dear friend who just found out very recently that her sister has a brain tumor, surgery was done immediately, but the doctors were not able to remove all of the cancer they found. These women as children lost their own father many years ago on Christmas Day, after what was to be a non-life threatening procedure. My friend struggles to find a joy about Christmas because of this sad event and now this Christmas she is faced with the news about her sister. I am sending this card as an alternative Christmas card to her and I ask for prayers from all of you wonderful Christian Sisters for peace and a spirit of grace for this Christmas season as my friend and her sister and their families face this difficult situation at this Christmas season. My friend is a faithful Christian, and totally believes in the power of prayer. I know she will feel your prayers as God helds my friend and her loved ones close to Him this Christmas.

Liz, I'm so sorry about this unforunate situation/news for your friend's sister. I will add her to my prayer list, in fact both sisters and their families. Your card is beautiful and I'm sure will make her smile. Love the blue fourishes all around! Cute cute. Hugs!!

My heart goes out to your friend and her family. Prayers will be said for them. I have no doubt your card will be a blessing to her. It is a very pretty card as well as conveying your heartfelt friendship, thoughts and prayers.

Liz, you always make such beautiful cards. I love the soft colors, image, and the embellishments. Im sure that this card will be a great comfort to your friend. Even greater the assurance of your prayers and the card will be a wonderful reminder of that. I also will add her to my prayer list. blesings

Praying your request right now, dear. Prayer changes everything. Calming the heart is a big need and to get news at holiday time is hard to take. The body has a way of overwhelming us but the Word says that HE did not give us a spirit of fear but of a sound mind.
Your card is a blessing and thanks for sharing it with us at SSCC

This is such a sweet soft card and I know it will hold a special prayer filled with concern as you deliver it.
