Welcome to Stop 7 of the Caring for the Cox Family Blog Hop! If you're falling into the middle of the hop, please start at Ashley's blog post to go through the entire hop in order, or see the complete hop list at the bottom of this post.
THERE ARE PRIZES, PEOPLE! Details about the prizes are on Ashley's blog. Entries for the prizes will be drawn from comments on all the blogs of the hop, and people will get an extra entry for donating to the GoFundMe link below.
It's an honor and a privilege to be a part of this Caring for the Cox Family blog hop for Ann, Kevin, and their young son, Liam, who are going through an extremely tough time right now. Ann and I met through Splitcoast and her blog, Creative Antics, years ago, and I always admired her design sense and her humor. Also, Ann is a high-school English teacher, and y'all know how much I love people who appreciate both great literature and proper grammar.
I wanted my card of encouragement to speak to them personally. I know one of Ann's favorite color combinations is aqua and red, that her stamping style is definitely clean and simple, and that they are faith-filled Christians. Putting those things together gave me the idea for this card.
This sentiment, which comes from from 1 Peter 5:7, reminds us that God loves us and cares for us through all the storms of our lives. One way He cares for us is by inspiring others to help us in our time of need. Let's surround Kevin and Ann and little Liam with caring thoughts and prayers, and if you feel able, please consider donating to the GoFundMe page that has been set up for them:
