Question sentiment for a terminally ill woman

My mom, grandmother & aunt knit "prayer shawls" for people who are undergoing tough times and many are for people who are terminally ill.

I offered to make cards to go with the shawls to the recipients. I'm having trouble finding something appropriate to include as a sentiment.

Any ideas? Suggestions? I've googled but not much is grabbing me.

The card I'm working on now is for my other aunt's mother who is suffering from COPD and CHF. Her time is very limited without a miracle from God.

I'm really at a loss on this one.

I've always liked this sentiment. I thought it was good for parents who had lost a young child, but it might also be applicable here.

I use Thinking of you, You're in my Thoughts, something along those lines.

Hugs and Hope from me to you...

This card is so cheery with the font and flower: no disease likes hope

Courage and strength come to mind for someone who is facing those circumstances.

I've used SU's Thoughts & Prayers for this type of card. There is a "Praying for You" and "Sending thoughts of love and praying for the Lord to sustain you with bright and restful days." It also has a stamp that you could mask and just use "Thinking of You."

Obviously, "Get Well" or anything like that is not appropriate. I agree that "Thinking of You" probably has more meaning to these people than you can imagine. It really says a lot in just three words.

The simple the better......Thinking of you. Being realistic......if a person is terminally ill, nothing can change that. So words implying some sort of change or hope for the better really do no good.

Just let the person know you are thinking of them.

I agree. Letting people know that you're thinking of them will help to comfort them (I think).

I think this verse is very comforting.

There is a Prayer Shawl Ministry home page where you can find prayers to include with shawls. Here's the link:

I like a couple of phrases from SU's Hard to Say set. I use this set a lot with my friends who are battling cancer and other diseases..."I've never known someone so brave. I'm praying for you." and "You are stronger than this. You are brave and courageous. And let's face it, You're my friend so that means you can put up with anything!" and finally, "Life doesn't always happen just as we planned, but I plan to be there for you always."

Those poems are amazing.


I actually just ordered a Stampin Up! set WELLNESS WISHES , " Praying for you during your illness" would be appropriate
