Nature Walk ~ Flourish

I made this card using Nature Walk from Layers of Color and a Scripture sentiment from my collection of wood mounted stamps. This also fits for the Just for Fun Color Challenge #22 and the Card Patterns #75 challenge.

I have been quite absent from blogging (and visiting blogs for that matter) and honestly haven't given it any thought.... My dear husband was in the hospital over the weekend with Lone Atrial Fibrillation. Things are settling down now and we have much to be thankful for in many answered prayers this weekend. His heart went back into rhythm on its' own about 15 hours after it went haywire...that was a LONG 15 hours. I learned more about afib, than I ever thought was possible at my husband's young age (he is 40). I have never prayed so much in one day as I did on Saturday and honestly the Lord gave me a peace each step of the way that I cannot explain other than that it "passeth all understanding" ~ Phil. 4:7. All tests have shown there is nothing wrong with his heart, it was just a "lone" event...no way to explain it or why it occurred. We are just very thankful and have a new look on this life the Lord has blessed us with.... I do have one verse to share that was shared with me (from dear Grace) that is so very encouraging to me, Ps. 73:26, "My flesh and my heart faileth; but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever."

I pray you have a wonderful day and hope to be back to *normal* next week.....
Blessings,

Jennie,it is wonderful news that your DH is doing well...I can only imagine how worried you must have been. Isn't it a wonderful wonder that we have a God that can hold us in his hand and give us peace. I will pray for you both and hope that things continue on a bright path.
Love your card. The flouishes made a lovely background for the verse.

Thank the Lord! It is so scary to have your husband ill without knowing why. Me too, when my dh was 40 (46 now). [His was a blood thing, but okay now-a one time thing as well] You are in my prayers of thanksgiving as well as strength for you all. Hugs~Lori

Glad to hear that dh is okay! Those heart things can scare you! Had to call the rescue squad for me last night. I came out of the cold air in church into hot humid rain and dashed to the truck. My bp went up to 171/161 and heart rate of 119. EMT said too much of a shock to my body and it couldn't get oxygen to my body.Didn't think I was gonna get home. Went to dr this am and nurse said that was very probably what happened. Every thing is fine now. Love that verse your friend shared with you!
