Peace Love and Joy

Howdy Crafters - 
My Dear Christian Friend, Renee Smith is battling Leukemia - she is presently in remission and I pray that God will give her a complete healing. If you think about it, please pray for Renee.
Renee Smith is truly a wonderful Christian wife, Mother and friend. She has helped me through troubled times and giving me encouragement through my Christian walk. She has given birth to 6 children - all adult age and has been a foster mom.  I was honored to have two of her children in my classroom when they were teenagers - they truly are delightful children and followers of Jesus Christ with children of their own.  Her husband Mark is a loving husband and father. Very supportive and caring.
 I created this card for Renee and I know that Renee's Faith has NOT grown weary during this trial.
Thanks for dropping by and have a blessed week ~ Gail~
