A week of silence

Hello Heart 2 Heart readers this is Jessica here filling in for Mary. It is with a heavy heart that I will share with you today that last week Mary lost her infant granddaughter Liberty. The upcoming months are going to be very difficult for Mary and her family and I ask that you would keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We as a design team decided to take this week of from our challenge in memory of little Liberty. We will be back with our next challenge next Monday and in the meantime you can still play along with any of our other challenges from the month. We will also be back later this week with the winner of the random prize drawing from last weeks bunny hop, so make sure you check in to see if it might be you!

There are no words to take away the pain and sorrow Mary and her family must be experiencing right now. When I read of this loss, my mind went to Scripture (Philippians 4:6-8) and I will pray that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard the hearts and minds of this hurting family.
