Card Details


A house stood near the salty shore
as storm winds whipped against its door.
The tide rolled in and clouds turned gray.
It tried to wash the house away.
Inside Message: The ocean roared with all it could,
the waves crashed down, but House still stood.
Then Storm let up, flopped on the sand,
and said, "Hey, House, how can you stand?"

The house said, "Storm, that's all you got?
You know, I'm built to take a lot.
You've drenched and soaked me through and through,
and ripped my roof and shutters, too."

"You've chipped my paint and cracked each pane,
but I can take a little rain.
See, I am anchored in the ground,
that's where my strong foundation's found.
And from inside, my light shines bright,
no matter if it's day or night.
Yes, even after all you've done,
You, Storm, have passed. Here comes the sun."

Encourage a friend to stay strong as they endure a difficult time with this card's beautifully rendered poetic story. With elements similar to the parable of the house on the rock, its message offers the hope of getting through even the worst of times with a firm foundation on solid ground. Remind them that the storm will pass and the sun will shine again.

    House by the Shore

    This was a wonderful card and I bought 2 of them to send to a couple of gals who have lost their husbands this past year. One was so touched that she posted it to her facebook page.
