Even in French....

it's a beautiful verse.
In English it says:
Whoever believes in me,
as Scripture has said,
rivers of living water
will flow from within them.
John 7:38
Margaret sent this to me.
She fancied it up with stitching and glitter and all that stuff we love!
It's a postcard and on the back....

I tried typing it into translater .... something about someone's late husband. Anyone able to read this? Margaret sent me other things, too. I'll show them soon. I love that she sent me scripture in French! She knew I would cherish this. ...ahhhh...the blog world is good.....

POST SCRIPT..... yes, the blog world IS good.... Lorrie translated the back for me.... it seems Rachel didn't have a "late husband" ..... but a husband that was "late"!

Beloved Rachel, Here is (your husband) a little late with a little souvenir of the past 8th of October. So, it's set for Wednesday. I'll wait for you at the bottom of the big staircase where I'll arrive before you at (???), I think. A cordial greeting to everyone and a big kiss for the (???)

Thank you, Lorrie! I should've thought to ask YOU!! I love that it's from her husband...I thought her husband had died based on the translation I came up with!

I knew this was meant for you when I saw the birds and the scripture, I had no idea about the text, I'm so pleased he was waiting rather than lying at the bottom of the stairs!! I usually manage to translate the German ones, what wonderful stories they create!

How sweet is this? Love that adorable card with the birds. LOL on the husband coming back to life in the real translation! A much happier version, I might add. Very romantic! Our current generation I'm afraid will not have all these little relics to pass on to the next...it'll be text msgs and emails lost forever. boo hoo!
