Under His Wings

I've been away from my blog too long thanks to a week with a stomach virus and migraines, then too much kitchen work with my orchard producing cherries, apricots, and especially peaches. What a harvest of peaches we've gotten when I thought the late freeze would have destroyed them.  I'll be freezing lots of quarts of peaches for at least a week, as well as making  more peach pies to share.

I have a P.E.O. sorority sister who is in a nursing home being treated for cancer. Our group decided to sign up for making encouragement cards for her, one to be mailed each day for the next couple of months. Here's an encouraging verse I'm sending that came from PTI's Year of Psalms mini stamp for the month of March:  "He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge. Psalm 91:4." I visualize running to hide from trouble, to be protected and comforted, whenever I read this verse. In fact, after making these cards,I continually heard the old hymn, Under His Wings, playing in my mind. The words and piano version are in that link. I've also liked the message of a newer version sung here.

I remembered having this feathered CTMH paper from the retired Free to Be Me pack. I made several cards with this paper piece and took a photo of these two.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you'll find peace, safety, and comfort in this verse, too. If so, pass it on.

I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:

Make My Monday Challenge #49 - Summer Brights
Path of Positivitiy Challenge #50 - anything goes (I didn't use option of faith, hope, and/or love)
Stamps & Fun = Creativity #304 -  inspired by a song
