Sometimes I find myself wondering why God gives me such sweet gifts. This necklace was one of those that took me by surprise. I was at a monthly Bunco game with some friends. There was a substitute playing whom I had never met but she had "met" me through this blog and had been praying for our family. As the night went on she realized who I was and took this necklace off of her neck and handed it to me. I thanked her for such a kind gift not realizing how special this necklace was to her. Later that evening Boo told me the story she had heard about the jewelry. What a gift...much more than I deserve. The analogy did not escape me...I have been given many incredible gifts including the gift of a new life in Christ....again, much more than I deserve.
Another thing I do not deserve and yet I thoroughly enjoy! I included this picture because of the beautiful words above the tub from my friend at Fruitful Vine Creations. Hard to read but this is what it says "His compassions never fail, they are new every morning, Great is Your faithfulness."
Another sweet gift! This is a player piano from Eric's side of the family. My in-laws brought this down and today the kids enjoyed playing everything from "Grandpa Tell Me 'Bout the Good Ole Days" to "I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly". It is big, heavy, and loads of fun.
And, here is an after...the rack on the left is where a small refrigerator use to be. This is my makeshift kitchen while our main kitchen is being remodeled.
