More Sympathy

Sympathy cards are not hard to make in general, just simple words and beautiful flowers. They are harder to make when they are needed. They are especially hard to make for friends and family whose pain you want to ease, whose sorrow you want to eliminate.

This card is for a friend who lost her father. When I'm making something for someone specific I think about them, and pray for them, through the entire process. I know that my friend is really hurting and I don't know if my efforts at a card are going to help them in anyway. But I know that my prayers are heard and I hope that God will replace her sorrow with loving memories.
