It Is Well With My Soul

Sympathy cards.  I do not ever want to have to make them and really dislike making them, but on the other hand, I do enjoy it.  Only because I want them to be a blessing for the recipient.  I want them to know I care and am thinking of them and praying for them, so I often put more care into a sympathy card than another kind of card, but I've had to make too many recently!  The card I'm sharing today is one that a lot of love and effort went into.  It was made for a college friend who lost her husband after a great physical battle resulting from a stroke.  Too young!  Too soon!  But God had a plan, and their whole family was such a sweet testimony of God's strength and grace through it all.  Often in her updates on his condition, she often shared a song and what it had meant to her that day.

When I saw Sweet n Sassy Stamps' Hymn Blocks set, and I knew I wanted to get it and would use it often, so I ordered it.  When I needed to make her family a card, I knew I needed to use that set.   It has phrases from 6 songs, but I used "It Is Well."

I made it into an easel card...

What a gorgeous card Debbie. Any your love and caring show through in it. Your card made e think of the Beatitude: Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted. Your card says it all!
