Here we are again! Wednesday! Life is flying by one week at a time! Once more it's time to sneak a peek at folks' desks all around the world. Julia at Stamping Ground is the hostess of this fun blog hop, so drop in at her blog if you'd like to join in.
Some of you may have read my last post in which I talked about my little great-grandson, Gabriel. For those of you who didn't, little Gabriel passed away six days ago while in the process of being born. It was a sad day for all of us. He had been diagnosed with heart problems a while back and it was expected that he would need some surgeries, but his heart just stopped while his mom was in labor. As you can understand, we've been thinking a lot about him this week and in his memory I wanted to create a couple of pages in my scripture journal. I'm not sure I'm finished with these. I may add some more text, but this is what they look like so far.
My granddaughter, Esther, had a dream about her son the night he died. In her dream she saw Gabriel in heaven and he was being held and passed around by many people who loved him, and who had gone to heaven before him: two of his great-uncles, a good friend of the family and a man Esther didn't know. She described him to her husband as a very large, muscular black man. Her husband, Logan, had been feeling very sad thinking of Gabriel being all alone and after Esther's description he checked with some of his military buddies. They found out that a friend of his matching her description had died in Iraq and he hadn't known about it. One of these friends sent a picture of the man who died. His name is Mario and Esther said that, yes, that was the man in her dream. I hope I'm explaining this clearly, but I thought it was such a blessing that God would give her a dream like this to put both of the parents' hearts at ease knowing their little boy was surrounded by people who love him. Of course, Jesus is there with him also, but God knew it would bless them to see these other people they knew. :)
Besides these journal pages I haven't been doing a lot art-wise. On my slant-top desk you'll see my sketchbook which appears to be blank, but in reality there is a string drawn there awaiting my attempt to draw a zentangle for The Diva's Weekly Challenge. Not tonight; it's late!
I hope you all have a great WOYWW and thanks for all of your prayers!
