I am the owner of Janet's Creative Cottage. I am passionate about creating and also have a love of art. My dream is to one day see all of my artwork or creations in stores throughout the United States and Europe. I want to make a difference and help others who are in need.  So if you are looking for unique handmade products then this is the place for you.

Happy Memorial Day~

A Memorial Day Prayer~

Eternal God,Creator of years, of centuries,Lord of whatever is beyond time,Maker of all species and master of all history --How shall we speak to youfrom our smallness and inconsequence?Except that you have called us to worship youin spirit and in truth;You have dignified us with loves and loyalties;You have lifted us up with your lovingkindnesses.Therefore we are bold to come before you without groveling[though we sometimes feel that low]and without fear[though we are often anxious].We sing with spirit and pray with couragebecause you have dignified us;You have redeemed us from the aimlessnessof things' going meaninglessly well.God, lift the hearts of thosefor whom this holiday is not just diversion,but painful memory and continued deprivation.Bless those whose dear ones have diedneedlessly, wastefully [as it seems]in accident or misadventure.We remember with compassion those who have diedserving their countriesin the futility of combat.There is none of us but must come to bereavement and separation,when all the answers we are offeredfail the question death asks of each of us.We believe that you will provide for usas others have been provided with the fulfillment of"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."

I want to wish each and everyone a very Happy Memorial Day. Pretty soon summer will be here and I truly hope it will be the best summer for all!~
