Blog Hop in Memory of Lisa Lynne Wright...I will miss you...

This is very sad time for crafters who know Lisa Lynne Wright. I served with Lisa on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team during my 2 terms, and just learned this week that our sweet Lisa left this world and on to another place....Heaven.... This is a blog hop in honor of Lisa, and although it was such short notice for me  to create a project for this hop, I would love to share my words that I sent to Lisa's husband Joe, in the hopes that my words would be of some comfort to him. I will send my card after. Although I only knew Lisa from being Online friends and co designers, I felt I knew her for a long time. Her words of encouragement, and her sweet comments on  my work, were always kind, genuine and the sweetest. The crafting world has lost a beautiful, loving, very talented artist. I am grateful our paths crossed in this industry, and I will miss her so...God Speed my friend...




I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, "There, she is gone."
"Gone where?"
Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "There, she is gone!" there are other eyes watching her coming, and there are other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"    Amen
