In The Arms Of An Angel

Over at Let's Scrap they are having a special challenge for the month of September.  We were given a Julie Bonner sketch to use for a layout and have a chance at a great prize.  Here is Julie's sketch

Here is the layout I did for it. 

The pictures are engagement pictures of my Son and his fiance.  Three weeks from today Jason will marry the love of his life Amy. He has had a crush on her since he was 10, started dating her at age 13 and now they are 22. I thank God for bringing this sweet Angel into his life. She is truly beautiful inside and out.

As many of you know Jason was paralyzed in a car accident 2 years ago. I believe that it was Amy’s love that helped him to keep such a positive attitude about the tragic turn his life took. She not only has been with him every step of the way but she has also been there to help and support me. If I had, had a daughter I can only hope that she would have been as amazing and loving as this young lady is.

I came across a quote the other night written by Lao-Tzu that says
“To love someone deeply gives you strength.
Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.”

In there case I believe this is very true.
I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Scrapping.
