Card Ministry

I have a card ministry that I started about 12 years ago.  At that time I had a lot of littles and big kiddos at home and home educating.  With one vehicle it was hard to help out in the nursing home/home bound visitation.  But...I could share what I  I started out with maybe 12 people and the list was added to because there were some older generation members who came to church, but just needed a bit of cheering up.  My list has grown over the years, I have lost some...ok...many....because they moved on to Glory, but my ministry stays busy with about 55-60 cards a month.  Depending on what is going on at church the count can grow from there with special speakers, etc.

I have a card to share today.  The idea was from Patty Bennett's blog, pattystamps.comShe made a card using a new set from Stampin' Up! called Painted Harvest.  I do not have that set, but I have the retired set from SU called Serene Sunflower.  Instead of using ribbon, I used a small piece of Crushed Curry cardstock.  It makes it a bit easier to mail.  

Does not even compare to Patty's card, but it gave me inspiration for using what I had! Now all I have to do is write!!!!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

A Couple of Pictures

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here is a picture of our newest grandbaby!

Introducing "Mildred Millie Maude".  No, that is NOT her name.  Let's just say when Son #2 and Daughter-in-law #2 decided on a name, before she was born, I would refer to her by her name-to-be.  Not once did anyone ever correct me that I was pronouncing it wrong until about 5 days before she was born.  Dear Son asked me to repeat  her name, not once, not twice, but three times before I realized he was "making fun" of the way I was pronouncing the name. He is not the only one who poked fun at me.  I guess I put the emphasis on the wrong syllable!  So, this ol' Mammi decided to come up with a name until I can either take speech lessons and learn to pronounce it, or a nick name!  {just a side note, Son is NOT impressed with my "name" for her.  oh well, life goes on!}

Here is a picture of 8 of our nesters, and "guard" dog, Lucy.  This was taken last night, October…
