2009 has been an up and down year for me. Depression was hidden in various closets and drawers of our home, and I never knew where I would find it next. One of the exercises I used to lift my spirits during 2009 was to focus on others. When I felt myself slipping into sadness I would make a card or a mini album to give to someone. I discovered that creating for others kept me from thinking about myself. I also tried to remember Psalm 30:5 "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning."
I made this card for a young couple in KY when they purchased their first home.
