Can you believe it's October????
Time for our Postcard!!! This month it's my turn, and let me tell you, we serve an awesome God.....I drew this last December. God knew how much I would need this verse, this month, with mum going in for surgery. Is that not too awesome for words?
Today, we signed the papers giving me power of attorney for medical decisions for mum, not an easy thing to do, and something I never would have thought of - but the hospital seems to think of everything. She and I had a very serious conversation this afternoon, about her wishes; something we've joked about in the past, and it ended again in laughter today. It was pretty much decided that it's in God's hands, and we'll cross that bridge if we come to it.
We can only be serious for a very short time, lol. Mum and I are alike in that - we prefer to laugh, because it's all temporary anyway, and we know God will guide us. Remember this is the woman who would "rather giggle than google". How very dear she is to me! And how terribly unconcerned she is about it all. Truly God has given her the peace that passeth all understanding...

Jenny's gorgeous version.
Exquisite, as usual. If you prefer to use Jenny's more conversational style wording, you can download it from her blog here: Jenny of Elefantz
Someday I must make these again, using Jenny's lovely style. By the way - when I went to upload the pattern, craftsy had changed EVERYTHING!!!! I forgot my password so had to reset that, and then learn to navigate the new site - but you know, I think it's better!! Except, you might have to go to page two of my designs to find the new postcard - there is a little tab at the top to change the sorting to "newest first".
And now a word about blogging - it's going to be a very busy weekend here, and surgery is scheduled for Tuesday morning. I'll be spending the night at the hospital after the surgery, they have a hotel right in there! I doubt I'll have time to blog, and I won't have my laptop with me. I'll be able to post from my phone on facebook, so if you follow me there, you'll probably see updates on mum. She'll be in there 7-10 days, it's not close to me so most of my time will be spent either at the hospital or traveling to and from. I'll try to update the blog later in the week, and let you know how she goes. Oh my precious friends, we covet your prayers....
Take time to laugh this weekend with those you love. I said with them, not at them.....
