And behold.. You shall conceive a Child..

Today I'm going to show you a different card from the ones I usually make. It is not one of those cute cards, but a card with a message.. that of the Annunciation of Jesus' Birth. I was contacted yeasterday by a friend, saying that he wanted a card to give to His Grace, our Archbishop! and he wanted it by evening to be given in a special occasion!! I can tell you.. I really panicked!! :) First of all.. I never made a card for such an honorable person.. the Archbishop himself.. and then I had two school concerts, and had to finish the card before the kids arrived from school! Eeeek!

Anyway, I can say that God really wanted this card, cause I don't know how I made it!! But the Archbishop seemed to appreciate it, and well ..this is always our joy, in seeing our humble work we take in putting the card together being appreciated. God bless you dear friend, and I pray that your inner "manger".. that is.. your heart.. is prepared to receive Him in a few days' time! :)
