Blue Butterfly -Postcard Friendship Friday #333

This beautifully embossed postcard was given to me by my dear Friend Theresa.  Last Christmas she gave me a bag full of envelopes.  Each was labeled with things like, "If you are having a hard day," "When you are sad," and "Here's a Smile for Today."  I have treasured these envelopes--opening them one by one--only when I needed them most.

Yesterday was the four-year anniversary of my precious Daddy's passing into Heaven.  We call it his Heaven Day.  I was my Dad's eldest and a Daddy's girl.  I miss him dreadfully and I was having a really really bad day.  So I opened one of those envelopes and was blessed with such hope and sweetness--not only by the exquisite beauty of the postcard, but by the note she enclosed with it.

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 
~1 Peter 5:7, The Bible
You are in my prayers.

What a dear blessing, to be reminded of the gift of prayer which surrounds me and to think upon the beauty and kindness of Him Who cares for me.  He is the God who understands my heart--who knows me better than anyone.  My Lord--my Shepherd, my Friend.

Have a lovely weekend, sweet Friends.  May you see sparkles of blessings throughout each day, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Wonderful, embossed card. Like it. My father is 90 now. I feel blessed that both my parents are still alive and can live together in their old home. Happy PFF!

Teresa is a sweet friend. What a wonderful way to show her friendship to you. I've always liked embossed cards.

What a beautiful idea, to comfort a friend, I know how words can fail us, and when we want to help it seems odd and cliche to just be there for our friends in need at the immediate time. How special it was of her to comfort you when you need it. It is a wonderful card as well, with perfect sentiment. Thank you for sharing. and Teresa thank you for caring, we all need a friend such as you.
