Surprise and New Blog Design



















My wonderful friend, Edie at Rich Gifts resigned Sitka's blog, "All GOD's Creatures" upon my request. She captured Sitka's heart in her blog design. Sitka and I love it. She also made Sitka a scripture tag in the shape of a dog bone.

The surprise came when I came to Arise 2 Write, this morning. Edie, with the help of Mary at Divinely Designed had conspired to use one of my own snapshots to give this blog a new look. Edie also made me a wonderful scripture tag. She once again captured my heart in her design.

Please visit both Edie and Mary and tell them what you think about both designs. They are treasured friends and I thank GOD daily for bringing each of them into my life.

Please also storm the heaven's on behalf of Mary's mother in law. She had a stroke over the weekend.

Blessed to be among friends,

Andrea

I can never speak enough of the heart of Edie and all that she means to me and all the ways she blesses ALL of us! She's a treasured gift from GOD and I'm thankful. Beautiful designs she's done.

Sitka's and yours look great! That's awesome that it's your own pic as the background! That made it even more special! Praying that you'll recover your strength after all that wedding prep. Take care. God bless.

Your new blog design is beautiful. I'm going now to visit your friend for whom you requested prayers. I hope I can say something that will help and encourage her. I may go through my poems to see what I can find. Have a wonderful weekend.
