Little Card for a Little Guy

Friends of ours have a son who is 3 months old. He had a seizure a week before Easter and has been in the ICU at Children's Hospital in Atlanta ever since. The doctors aren't sure why he can't regulate his own blood sugar levels, so the family has been stretched emotionally and physically.

We aren't in this family's inner circle, but I wanted them to know that we care about them and that we're praying for little Joshua. When I saw this tutorial, I thought it would be a good one to use to send them some encouragement.

I used the sentiment from the Polka Dots and Paisleys set to remind them to look for the good things that are happening each day, and find joy in those. I used my 1/2" and 1 1/4" circle punches for the inside, and again called my stamp-a-ma-jig into play to make sure I could position the words just where I wanted them.

It's hard to know what to say and how to stand with someone during a time like this, but I do believe that prayer is powerful and that God listens. I'm also trusting that a little card stock and some stamps will communicate care and support.
