in memory of my mum in law

Pin It

thought i would let you all know we were with my mum in law this morning when she passed away peacefully. In the 20 years i knew her i was truly blessed she taught me how to be a mum, to love and show love, to have mercy for others and be fair with everyone, have patience in whatever life deals you and trust God always. I will miss you Granny but i know you are safe in the arms of Jesus rest now.

"In His kindness God called you to His eternal glory
by means of Jesus Christ. After you have suffered
a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen
you, and He will place you on a firm foundation.
All power is His forever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 5:10-11 NLT

Happy Easter

Pin It
Hi all, this last month has been a whirlwind of stuff happening with Granny her condition has had the added complication of heart failure now along with infections...but she is stabilizing in this condition. As you can imagine this is having a huge impact on every day life for all of us. I guess we are blessed the hospital is only 2 streets away which makes time with her a whole lot easier. So forgive me for the lack of posts but Im sure you will understand. These are some of the easter cards we did in class and i thought i would share them with you ....i will be having a few weeks off for the school holidays.

These 2 above folded card patterns are available for sale on my pattern blog in an easter pack

I know one thing i have understood more fully lately and that is to walk each day by faith in Jesus. and ill leave you with a text that has helped me......have a happy easter all.... Valita XX

and a last thought

You shall weep no more, for He will
surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry.
He will answer you. Though He give you the
bread of adversity and the water of affliction,
yet he will be with you to teach you-with your
own eyes you will see your teacher.
And if you leave Gods paths and go astray,
You will hear a voice behind you say,
"No, this is the way; walk here."
Isaiah 30:19-21
