Flowery Get Well Scripture Card

One of the sad things about being sick is that it usually takes us out of fellowship with our friends, family, and co-workers while we recuperate.  Yet it can be a time when we especially need the uplifting care and prayers from those we know. I'm constantly reminded that I need to have a lot more get well cards to share the message of my loving concern and God's care and healing. I also believe that much of the time when I have inconvenient illness, God wants me to learn something through it all and share with someone else who is ill.

This week the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is to make a card with scripture. I chose one of their scripture stamps from their "Get Well" stamp set that says:

"I will restore you to health . . .declares the Lord."  
Jeremiah 30:17
