A friend of mine had a miscarriage last month. It was her third in six months and devastating. I had made her the Born Into Heaven necklace for the first one. This time the loss was really early on, so the mourning wasn’t as much for that individual baby as it was for the loss of another pregnancy, questioning what was going wrong and wondering if a thriving pregnancy would be possible. I felt like a visual reminder that God would carry her through her pain and grief would be the right kind of gift this time.
I used digital scrapbook papers and embellishments, copied the verses in, and chose Matthew 5:4 to be the big one at the bottom: Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. I had it printed as an 8x10 at Costco with a matte finish. It came out beautifully. Because of the matte finish and the textured look to the scrapbook paper image, it almost looked like a canvas. My friend said she’ll have to frame it and hang it in her bathroom where she’ll be able to read it often.
I love that this can apply to any difficult situation, not just a miscarriage. If you’d like one for yourself or a friend, simply click on the image, save it, and upload it to your favorite printer. The sizing is for an 8x10.
Thanks for stopping by!
