“Great is thy faithfulness” -Lamentations 3:23
For 10 sweet years, my family was blessed with Cricket, the most faithful, loving, & joyful beagle. Not only was she a treasured family member, she was the mascot of Ashley Ink & Paperie. We were devastated to lose her last weekend to two types of cancer. If you’ve ever lost a four-legged member of your family, then you know exactly what I mean. Hug your furry nugs, friends–we can never fully understand how much they are a part of our lives until they’re no longer with us.
With every crack in our lives she left behind, I can’t help but see the glorious light that floods through. Cricket’s legacy shines in every patch of sunshine where she loved to nap. It bring so much comfort in times of such sadness. Just as the Lord gives us gifts of doing certain things well, it makes me smile to think He gives our four-legged companions gifts to reflect His love. Without a doubt, Cricket had the gift of faithfulness. She was always at our feet with her tail wagging. She loved BIG and never missed a meal. Our home will never be the same without the jingle of her collar or the pitter-patter of her paws on the hardwood floor.
Ashley Ink & Paperie’s new Seeds of Truth planner starts this July, and Cricket just so happens to be the anchor illustration for that first month.
Back when I created the planner last December, we had no idea how much longer she’d be with us because her cancer had recently been diagnosed. July will be our first full month without her, and it only seems fitting to dedicate Seeds of Truth 2017 in her honor. She is the sweetest illustration of a faithful servant.
For every planner purchase, we are overjoyed to include a FREE Cricket notecard! (see below) She has made such a sweet impact on so many lives, and we’d love to keep her tradition alive for years to come.
