"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

We received this in the mail a few days ago! They're called Heartsleeves, a joint creation, by a friend and her friend.  We plan to wear these armbands in the early days after Rachel is gone.  They remind me of the white bands that people wear in China, to signify mourning.  I love them! I wanted to share this on the blog, as an idea for others who are or will be mourning someone close to them.  What my friend said, and I agree with, is that no matter how wounded and shattered someone feels on the inside, he/she might still look ok on the outside.  This is a visual reminder of Rachel and a way for us to feel closer to her too.  There's even a little armband for Rachel that has the word "Loved" on it.  And some hair accessories for the girls:)

Kendra, I'm so glad you like these (and that they FINALLY arrived)! I feel so blessed to have been able to work on these for you, and to be able to participate, even in such a small way, with you in your struggles and joys. My family and I have been praying for you nightly as I have worked on these, and will continue to do so.

If your family and friends would like to order some of these, they can contact me through my still-under-construction website at http://klixcreations.webs.com/:)
