I was very excited when Jami let me know about this challenge. And I am thrilled to see it in the challenge forums. Thank you so much for this Lori!!!
My life verses are what I chose for my first one. James 1:2-8,12. I chose these in high school and when I was 29 years old had my 3rd child. Jaclyn. She was born out of state while we were on vacation. Complications were hydrocephalus and a diaphragmatic hernia. She was given a 2 week life expectancy. Too much fluid was drained from her head and her brain collapsed and cause 4-5 brain hemorrhages. To make a long story short. She is now 19 and mentally that of 5. I love her forever and am thankful that God has given her to me. And that He gives us promises and teaches us many things in our life. Although I don't have a handle on patience, I am thankful He is Faithful and True to His Word.
I am choosing to put my verse cards on bookrings. Mine will be 6x6 size.

Oh my. Your card is beautiful, but your faith in God and gratitude for your daughter even more so. Your story reminds me to be thankful for two healthy (now adult) children who were healthy enough to drive me nuts on a regular basis.
