Faith Tags CU FREEBIE! Hi everyone

Ok so long story short. About 5 years ago my life, my family and everything else was turned completely upside down. It was something I could never in a million years imagine happening to me or my family. After this happened I was put in a very uncomfortable position for me to ask for help from my friends and family. People did not like this nor respond well to this and even though this was the hardest thing that had ever happened to me most people who I loved and cared about most of my life walked away from me and my 2 small children. I was alone just me and God and a few faithful stragglers (My precious mother, my good friend and many strangers). Alone for a very long journey but the one thing I learned and that pierced my heart for eternity was that if I see a need now and I can meet it I will. If I see a mom struggling with her kids I open the door for her, if I see someone stuck in a storm I ask if I can drive them home, if someone needs food I dig out what I can for them to help, if someone is down I smile at them. This has nothing to do with me but with what God has done in my life. As painful as this has been I have learned lessons that would of never been as meaningful or life changing if this would not have happened. My long journey is not even close to over but I can now see a light at the end of this long long tunnel.

The name heartprints is very special to me because to me I want to leave an imprint on people's hearts & lives and I encourage others to do the same. I do not just want to be a bystander and watch life go by I want to be a participant. Any ways I sorry to ramble but I needed to talk to someone hehe. My life was deeply touched and forever changed by a few angels along the way. The more people that walked away made those few angels shine brighter in my life.

You are important to me too and even though we may never meet your life is important to me and maybe a tiny bit of my life can touch yours somehow. Enjoy the Faith Tags because I enjoyed making them.. xoxox

Inspire someone to leave a heartprint today in someone elses life!!

How truly inspirational this was for me. Some tragedies and lots of stumbling blocks in the past few years so I really can relate, but you've given me some newfound hope, and I thank you for this. And oh how I feel the same as far as those few angels we meet along the way, they truly do stand out brightly.

Wishing you the very best always. And thank you for sharing your lovely designs!

Thankyou, thankyou Kristin, you are so inspirational. I have been struggling with health issues for a few years now & often feel like giving in to things but am just too stubborn. It is my faith that has kept me going as well as a close family & wonderful friends but sometimes you just need a boost from a someone you don't know. Thanks also for sharing your talents - I so appreciate your freebies. (Big Hugs)
