Encouragement via Colored Paper and Words

All those cards! All the love!

All those cards! All the love!

The day after Ken had his heart attack was one of joy and fear. Joy that he was alive and had survived two stents being put in his heart. Fear of the open heart surgery scheduled two weeks from then. And ultimately, fear of the unknown.

We had so many questions and wondered what was ahead of us.

But within days, cards started arriving in the mail.

“We’re praying for you.”

“God gives us peace.

“Recovery is a process.”

Other people sent emails, called or visited us. This continued for three months!

Your words we such an encouragement to us…like a warm hug, balm on a wound, or good piece of music. We smiled, laughed and cried over each one. Each act took time. It took effort. It took work for the person who did it.

The things you did helped remove our fears and replace it with just JOY and PEACE. As Ken healed, we were thankful for each new day. We also recovered as a family.

Thank you for being the body of Christ. You have taught us how to be better members for others.
