Heartfelt Wednesdays...

Today I'm sharing a card that was totally inspired by the Going Home Celebration aired this past Saturday for Whitney Houston.  I was inspired by the love that was showered upon her beautiful spirit during the ceremony. I know God's plan was to take her home that day and I pray her family finds comfort in knowing the gifts she leaves behind far outnumber the challenges she faced throughout her short life on earth.  God rest her soul...

One of the most powerful moments for me was hearing Donnie McClurkin sing...STAND...Beautiful, Touching and Inspiring...Please take a listen...
