Dear E and I have put our heads together (uh-oh!) and come up with an idea we believe will be just the thing to remind Sandy that she is loved, prayed for, thought about and generally HUGGED by our blogging community. Elizabeth will write more about it on Monday, but here is a "hint" so you can be thinking about what you want to contribute specifically...
We believe that in our darkest moments, PRAYER brings into the Light hope and love. Therefore, I would like each of you to contribute a scripture and/or a prayer that has always spoken peace and healing to you. I will collect each of these scriptures, attach your name, and compile them into a wonderful container of some sort so Sandy can see each and every day (I'm thinking a vintage Mason jar!) the prayers and scriptures from her friends!
I am contributing the scripture: "He will keep her in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon Him." Plus a prayer that I have prayed for her many times, "Lord, please grant Sandy peace of mind, grace to walk out Truth as you show her, and courage to face each day, knowing that You ALWAYS go before us making our paths straight."
Please leave your prayers/scripture verses in the comments on this post. I will collect them all and print them in a lovely manner for presentation to our dear friend!
Peace and joy to each of you on this Christmas Eve! I leave you with a rendition of my favorite Christmas Carol: Carol of the Bells: Trans Siberian Orchestra style!
