"An Angel for You" card


Inside:-
Made this "angel card" for a dear friend who is going thru a really rough time right now.



Tools/Items:-
Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – see below
Cricut Cartridge – Christmas Noel (angel)
Glue – ATG; regular
Cardstock -- white (for the Imagine)
Cardstock – purple for the base
Patterned paper
Corner chomper – Cloud
Stickles -- Diamond
Pop dots
Rhinestones

Cricut Imagine Cartridges
All Wrapped Up (patterns)
All Wrapped Up (flower – Icon 01)
Country Carnival (medallion)

The inside was computer-generated. 

When my friend received her card, she was absolutely “touched” by the whole aspect of it.  She queried me about the seven gems I placed on it and had I placed “seven” for a reason.  I replied:-  “No, I just put them helter-skelter.”  I asked why she asked that question and she told me that the No. 7 is very symbolic.  I’m thinking, now, that I was basically “guided by an angel” as to how many gems and where to place them.  Then, I decided to do some research.  This is what I discovered:-

Symbolic significance of number 7

Scripture is saturated with the Number Seven and it symbolizes completeness or perfection.  You can read more here:-

Seven --- A mystic or sacred number
Seven Champions 
Seven Deadly Sins 
Seven Heavens 
Seven Kings of Rome 
Seven Lamps of Architecture 
Seven Last Words 
Seven Liberal Arts 
Seven Names of God 
Seven Natural Wonders of the World 
Seven Sages 
Seven Seas
Seven Senses 
Seven Wise Masters 
Seventh Heaven 
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son 
Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages 
Seven-year Itch 
Seven Year's War (1756-1763) 

If you wish to read about all or some of the above, you can check it out here:-


I think the next time I put gems on my cards, I’m going to check out the significance of the “numbers”. 

Anyway, w/ her very own angel(s) and all of her dear friends supporting her, she feels that she’s in “good hands” throughout this tribulation that she has been dealt.

I’d really appreciate it, if you would please send up some prayers for her.  Thanks so much! J

If you've already printed off the CheckList, all you'll have to do is print off the "Cricut Projects" sheet, instead of the whole Worksheet. Smile

A Letter from the PO

A friend of mine sent this to me today, via e-mail, and I just had to showcase/share it on my blog w/ all of you.


I was very teary-eyed, whilst reading it.  Hope you enjoy it!  :-)


A letter from the Post Office...this is absolutely the best!!
We don't know who replied, but there is a beautiful soul working in the letter
office. 


Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. 
  
The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. 
  
She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. 
  
I told her that I thought we could so she dictated these words:

Dear God,
 
Will you please take care of my dog? 
  
She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. 
  
I miss her very much. 
  
I
 'm happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. 
  
She likes to swim and play with balls. 
  
I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. 
  
I really miss her.
 
Love, Meredith
 


We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey 
& Meredith , addressed it to God/Heaven.   
We put our return address on it. 
  
Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. 
  
A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. 
  
I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith' in an unfamiliar hand. 
  
Meredith opened it. 
  
Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies.' 
  
Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. 
  
On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:


Dear Meredith,
 
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.
 
Abbey isn't sick anymore. 
  
Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. 
 
Abbey loved being your dog. 
  
Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in so I
'm sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by. 
Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. 
  
What a wonderful mother you have. 
  
I picked her especially for you. 
  
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. 
  
By the way, I'm easy to find. 
  
I am wherever there is love.

Love,
 
God
