"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh in no way can I take the credit even though I have been given it.
Some time ago KB posted cardboard testimonies on his blog. (Correct me Bob if it wasn’t you)
I watched a couple of them on YouTube after that and was so taken by how so much can be conveyed in a so little words. So I had some knowledge of how it worked but hadn’t given it any thought in my church. God speaks to us in some awesome ways. I was at work when women approached me with a large stack of boxes as I rang her up I discovered and was invited to cardboard testimonies. I spoke to my minister about it and how I would like to see it happen at our church. He asked me to head it up. I agreed only my life became a soap opera, really look at this list from then to now:
FRIEND’S CANCER DIVORCE DAD’S HEART SURGERY COURT SON’S BROKEN HIP MY KNEE SURGERY COURT ALASKA VACATION SISTER WITH CANCER SON’S PINS REMOVED SISTER’S CANCER TREATMENTS FRIEND BATTLING CANCER AGAIN (Please pray for them)
As you can see from the list my life has been interesting
Still God is with me.
Cardboard testimonies is going to happen this Sunday!Wednesday night Greg announced that we were doing it and we got several responses. The one that I will forever hold in my heart is my daughter’s CANCER –other side- FIGHTING and a drawing of a fist. She has one about divorce also. I will most likely have to take it on stage for her, she tells me she’s shy.
I’m also putting large pieces of cardboard by the communion tables so that people can write what they have on their hearts. Greg was on the same page with me on hanging the cardboards around the church. And we all agreed on the music, without talking about it those of us involved had the same song in mind.
