Pleasant words ... thank you!

On Monday I posted (see it here) about being in the middle of a bout of c.f.s. (chronic fatigue syndrome) and how I try and cope by claiming the truth that C.F.S. Christ Furnishes Strength!

I had some really lovely encouraging comments.  I just want to say THANK YOU to my lovely friends :D  Your words really blessed me and helped me as did your prayers.  I can feel when people are praying for me because, well, prayer works!  Yes, I am feeling a lot better, not totally yet but getting there. 

I was well enough today to sit at my arty table and do a journal page - which was just so great :D
My page was inspired by Ellen Vargo's ledger journal page at the PaperArtsy blog.  I loved her coneflowers and lovely blue backround.  Ellen used the PaperArtsy EEV09 stamps for the petals.  I didn't have these so I cut the petals out of paper which I'd painted and stamped.  I used Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paints for the backround and petals.


I love this proverb and it is so apt for the blessing of your comments - thank you again!

  1. Too right my friend! Sweet words are a healing balm to edify ourselves and to edify and encourage others! We are here for one another and I TOTALLY believe that healing can be manifested as another speaks, as an unction from the Holy Spirit, to you! God works in and through us to do His good purpose and that can begin with powerful prayers from another! You are just the sweetest spirit and I will continue to lift you up KNOWING that God has mighty things yet for YOU! Blessings my friend! :)

  3. It's a beautiful page, Susan!!! I'm so glad you are on the mend and felt well enough to play. Your background makes me think of jeans, specifically the pockets as your marks make me think of stitching. God Bless!!!
