Give thanks

Vincent left for Jordan and I was supposed to go with him on this trip, but somehow the timing does not permit, his meeting was rescheduled for one week earlier and Jer's A levels is still on going, so Petra would have to wait.  

I made this card yesterday afternoon and completed it last night after Vincent left for the airport.   I was inspired to make a "thank you" card after my medical check up last week, I was given a clean bill of health by Dr Low, with the exception to increase my dosage of hypertension medication.    I was then reminded of  a sermon by Joel and Victoria Osteen :

It’s easy to get focused on what’s wrong in life, what we don’t have, and how big our obstacles are. If we’re not careful, we’ll lose sight of all the good things God has done. We’ll take for granted our family, friends, health and the opportunities God has blessed us with. We’ll get so busy and stressed out that we won’t appreciate the gift of today

When making this card, I am reminded to give thanks constantly to God for keeping me, for keeping my family and friends, for our good health that God has blessed us with.

Here is my card which I am entering for the following challenges :-
