Spring Showers

Here I have a birthday card to share with you today.

Today is my son’s birthday (this is not his card 😉 ). He’s 16 today and I love him more than I can say. He’s a wonderful young man. Here are a couple of songs that remind me of him. Here and Here.  I won’t go on, because I’ll cry and there are enough tears around here lately. Thank you, LORD, for Ian!
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. At first I was wondering what the Tardis was doing in the middle of the garden, and then I realised it was a telephone box, not a police box! Love your card with your bright flowers and telephone box window. I hope your physical trial is soon over.

  4. I’m sorry you’re in the middle of a physical trial…I pray the Lord give you peace and strength through it Melissa. Your card is so pretty…I was intrigued by the open door at Casual Fridays and had to stop by. Happy Birthday to your son! They grow up wayyyy too fast, I know! I have three teen girls myself. 😉 Have a beautiful day~
