Hope and Remembrance for Daydream Designs


Daydream Designs Declaration of Hope Day October 9th
We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival. ~Winston Churchill~

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. 

Psalm 25:5

From Diane:
Few things in life teach more powerful lessons than adversity. When one encounters devastating challenges, it becomes easier to separate the superficial and the trivial from what matters most. We can suffer many losses, yet through faith, family and friends we discover the will to carry on. What we cannot live without is hope. Hope is the essential ingredient to emotional and spiritual survival, even when the body is wracked by destructive disease. Disease is a cruel enemy, but one conquest it rarely claims is hope.

Members of the Daydream Designs Dream Team, join together this month as one voice on this day to extend hope and encouragement to those touched by cancer and other life-altering diseases or disorders. Everyone on the team has either personally battled the ravages cancer or their loved ones or friends have been touched by it. Some have witnessed the devastation of Alzheimer’s or the struggles associated with Autism. Whatever the struggle, we have discovered the importance of hope.

We invite you to join us on this journey of hope, and as you visit each blog, we know you will be inspired by the creative talents of our team, by personal stories and powerful testimonies about the God who is with His children through every circumstance. We’ve each designed projects using images and/or sentiments from the new Hope Endures series. There is an outline set available to create your own colored set and currently four primary colored lines:
Pink: Breast Cancer, Purple: All Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Yellow: Children’s Cancer, Bone Cancer, Soldier Support, Puzzle:for Autism. Please see Diane's blog where she has posted one image from each colorized set above. They are FREE TODAY ONLY!

Visit our blogs, for your own inspiration, but we’d love to hear from you too. We invite you to share your own testimony of faith, or take the opportunity to honor loved ones who lost the battle with cancer. Share whatever is on your heart. You can tell your story on anyone’s blog, but we hope you’ll let each designer know you visited. Maybe you’d just rather list the names of those you want to honor andremember, whatever the form the cancer /disease took. Here are the dream team members who are participating.

My very short story...right now I'm busy running back and forth to the hospital for a family member battling a different issue. But I put this card together with the three strips of designer paper to remember the three people in my life that cancer has taken; my dad, my grandmother and my sister-in-law. Thanks for looking.
