True Beauty and prayers needed :):):)

Hi everyone :)

Today the latest sketch is live on Sketchy Thursdays :):):):):)

Here is my take on the sketch :)



I used Bo Bunny's Gabrielle that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)



And here is out sketch this week :)




And now for my prayer request :):)

My Aunt (by marriage) sent an email out to her friends and family yesterday asking for prayers for her daughter... and I am asking for you to include her in your prayers also.... Her daughter is a single Mom and her home was vandalized... not just robbed, but vandalized also...the people that did it, found every piece of liquid (including their own urine) that they could find, chocolate syrup, dish soap etc and sprayed it over everything... beds, couches etc...and then they took the cat litter and dumped it on all the places they put the liquid... and then of course they stole all of the electronics in the home... worst part is, my Aunt's daughter has no insurance as she was trying to get back on her feet financially .... and then to top it all off... she got a phone call that her boyfriend was killed in a motorcycle accident...... so, please I am asking you to keep her in your prayers... I can not even imagine going through all of that at once......


Thanks for stopping by.... I appreciate it :):):):):):):):):)

  1. Wow, Julie, that is terrible. I hope Karma pays those people back. I will say some prayers for her that she can quickly recover from this. I'm sure she can get a donation and some help from the Red Cross.

  4. I cannot wrap my mind around what she must be going through. To lose her boyfriend unexpectedly is so tragic... what sorrow she must be feeling! There is a blessing some where in this tragedy, it's just hard to imagine people that walk around with us that have some much hatred in their hearts and act out on innocent people. Please comfort her Father...

  14. I just read that story to the girls in the office and thought she should start a paypal acct for her, so people could donate money to help her. I couldn't even imagine. Thinking of them and the strengh she is going to have to get through this.

  15. First, I sooo love that photo & your layout is gorgeous!! (so soft).!!

    Second...I can't decide if I'm mad or heartbroken for your aunt's daughter.... both, I guess. To have such a voilation that is ridiculous like that burns me up... but the tragedy on top is really just that...tragic. I will pray for her...starting right now. .....Amen

  34. Julie... I'm so sorry to hear about that horrendous thing that happened to a friend. It's moments like these when your faith is put into perspective and unfortunately, some people start doubting. I pray that she is strong and gets through this horrible thing and that the mourning of her boyfriend passes by quickly. The power of prayer is amazing as you read in my blog. And I will pray a lot for her.

  37. Such a sad story mixed with such a beautiful layout. Both exquisite in their own way, one exquisitely sad, and the other beautiful. Your shyness in being photographed is quite sad as well, you just don't know your own beauty, girl!

    Great work, and I will keep the prayer chain going.
