Aren’t they just gorgeous?

Mom starts her chemo on Thursday, which happens to be her birthday.  I would so appreciate it if you would say a prayer for her.  Thanks…

Linking up over at Faded Charm for her beautiful White Wednesday Party.

Hi Amy,
Prayers said for your mom & the best wishes of strength, courage & healing to her also. Beautiful dried hydrangeas. Love the colors to them & I also love the sea green blue color to your wooden crate. Thank you for your compliment on my kitchen post today and I wanted to tell you that I can relate with you on the painting the cabinets white thing. Keeping them natural is something I had to compromise with my hubby on even though I would love for them to go white. We will probably move again someday, and as much as I would like them white, I do see his point. Have a good night. :-)

Oh...I will remember your mom in prayer. I will be starting up my chemo again in the next couple of weeks. I am NOT thrilled, but we gotta do what we have to do!

Hydrangeas are my all time fave flower! What a beautiful gift!!
I have been looking for some creamy dried hydrangeas for forever!! One of these days!!

I am bringing your Mom before the throne of grace, Amy. May God bathe her in His peace, give wisdom to her Dr. and touch her with His healing hands. In Jesus' mighty Name. Amen

Hugs to you! Tell her this Becky wishes her a Happy Birthday, and will lift her needs up to the Lord regularly!

Beautiful flowers!

Amy -
I absolutely will say some prayers for your mom. There is power in numbers so it certainly can't hurt for all of your "fans" to lift one up. Flowers are beautiful. Glad you included Hurley.

Love the flowers and the old wooden box. How sweet of your Mom's friend to gift you with those. Will send up prayers for your Mom and for you during this time. I'm sure it will be a bittersweet birthday. Sending Happy wishes for the day her way.

It'll be an honor to hold her in prayer. Happy birthday to her as well.

Hi, Amy.
Thanks for the comment the other day!
I have been thinking about you and praying for your mom. I came over specifically this morning to ask how she was doing and then you mentioned her in your blog. Praying for her healing and protection from the chemo. Also that it will do it's job and be effective quickly. Much love to you! My niece just finished her 2nd round and is doing very well. Praise God! Aren't you so glad that we can lean on the Everlasting Arms? He makes our burdens so much lighter. :)

I love love love them! I read all about drying hydrangeas in Blogland last year and tried to dry some of my own.


Of course.

Only I could manage to fail at drying flowers.

Becky C said...

Wow, gorgeous flowers! I love the colors with the white ironstone. What a sweet friend of your mom's. I wish I could grow hydrangeas here. Thinking and praying for an easy, comfortable day for your mom tomorrow. Send my love to her :) And tell her all your blog friends are lifting her up daily for complete healing and a peaceful recovery...

Sending many prayers your way, Amy. And a Happy Birthday to your sweet mom. Your flowers are beautiful.

Beautiful hydrangeas! They look so pretty in both containers.

I will definitely hold your Mom in prayer. I don't know if you are familiar with Chemo Angels or not ~ I've been a volunteer with them since '03. It's a wonderful support organization to support those going through treatment. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Will keep you in prayer too, Amy!

Marilyn Holeman said...

I'll pray for her as the Lord brings her to mind. What is her name? (Although I know the Lord knows who "Amy's mom" is. :-)

Faded Plains said...

Just sent some prayers for your mom...wishing her all the best!

Your flowers are just beautiful...they look great in your green wood tote.

Beautiful vignette, Amy! The hydrangeas look gorgeous and the cow picture is really cute. My prayers will be with your mother for complete healing. Hope all goes well.
