"Queen Greta The Fabulous Sno~Lady"

Above is a Sno~Lady that was created for a very Special Friend that God has blessed me in knowing through emails..
She has grown very dear to my heart..We were not aware that God would bring us together as friends when she wrote requesting some ( lots :0) of our greeting cards.

Shes a very encouraging woman that lives out west, a wonderful woman of God that is always inspiring and is sooo thoughtful in sending me neat "God Notes" I will call them,, to my email even in her busy days being the worship leader at her church..
Giving her all to our Sweet Lord and many others there I'm sure.
We have never meant as yet,,but I soooo am enjoying being blessed
by God with her friendship.. I truly enjoy reading her memories she shares about her late husband and all of her family...Love you Greta and all your notes..

She was kind enough to let me share this email from her with all of You,, my Sweet Girlfriends~~~Sisters in Christ.. Just yesterday I had told her I was a bit down in one of my emails I'd sent,, and that I wasn't sure why..So she surprised me last night about 9:30 Iowa time with,, these beautiful images and words from
a short,,but moving story...
Its a good easy read and I asked her if I could share it and the Sno~Queen with you.
Just as with her and I~~~ this goes for all of you too~~~
We may never meet here on this earth but one day we will meet in Heaven with
Our Sweet Jesus in the midst of us

And here it is just below these THANK YOUs meant With all My Heart

    Happy Birthday to your son. My son was 31 this year too! Time goes by so quickly. Okay I claim that snowman "Queen Debby" I would love to maybe put on my blog this winter with a link to you. It's adorable, it's all me!

  6. Dena-
    You have such a beautiful and inspirational blog! My Grandmother told me about your blog, and has shared with me what a wonderful person you are, and the delight she has e-mailing you ;)
    Your cards are a true reflection of your talent and love for God!

  7. &quot;Greta, Queen of all&quot;.September 15, 2010 at 5:10 PM

    I can't believe how lovely I am Dena. You are too kind. Love my beautiful jewels, etc. Jim would have loved it all.(my husband)He was the one who called me 'Queen Greta' for 51yrs. May God continue to bless you and your talent, also Kent.
    Thank-you so much. QG

  8. &quot;Greta, Queen of all&quot;.September 15, 2010 at 5:23 PM

    Sorry Debby, there can only be one "Queen of all". I certainly must share Dena's talents with whoever she wants, but just remember I am THE Queen. Just teasing, Dena can do anything, she is wonderful. I'd be flattered, too. Bet my jewels are bigger than yours though!!! QG

  9. Loved the wealth, success, and love story :) Thanks for the wonderful comments on my blog :)

  12. Okay, Ms. Dena, this has to be one of your best posts yet! How encouraging and uplifting it is to read such wonderful words. I've always loved that story of Love, Wealth, and Success. It never loses its power.

    I've finally regained the internet at my home. I've had some problems, but it looks as though God is fixing things for me. Hallelujah!

    Love you much, my friend and have a great weekend.
