I get by with a little help from my friends....
Jen's gift of love
I have been enveloped in love the past couple of weeks.
Our dear friends Jen and Nate came over on Saturday evening bearing gifts.
I had admired Jen's work of art a few weeks earlier, where she confessed to having made this particular piece from a framed canvas I had given her.
Just a cast-off to me...
Now a precious piece of original art hanging here in my home.
Peggy's precious work
In the mail this week....a dear blog commenter sent a package of handmade needlework.
How sweet is this pillow?
I love, love, love it.
Hmmmm....how did Peggy know I have a weakness for cats?
Betty also sent a handmade pincushion....so dang cute!
I think I could learn a thing or two from Peggy!
Lora, of Eager Hands blog, saw my blog post from several weeks ago and used her amazing talent to create this beautiful copper necklace just for me.
Her work is amazing, but what shines through even more is her love for the Saviour.
Adendum to this gift:
The necklace came in the mail last week.
I wore it proudly to church on Sunday.
The pastor, who really does not know us as we have only visited 3 times...
felt led by the Holy Spirit all week long to teach on........
"Godliness with contentment is great gain"
"If you want to be content, you must first pass through the land of godliness." Pastor A
Well, shut the front door!
You can best believe I paid very close attention to the message I felt was prepared just for me.
HE always amazes me.
Sophia on the "balance beam"
After taking the clothes off the indoor dryer rack, Sophia jumped up and walked all around it.
I find her in the oddest places.....
Last week she was on the top of the bedroom door.
And she does it all without a net!
The 3 mouseketeers
More often then not, the kitchen table which looks out onto the bird feeders, is where you will find the 3 cats.
Whole wheat banana bread
One of my bestest friends, Deby, heard my cry for bread pans and sent some straight from amazon and into my heart.
This fabulous banana bread was made possible because of Debys's generosity.
There have been other gifts sent my way...
Nothing you can hold in your hands...
They have been gifts of concern, love, and prayer.
I cherish each and every one.
I am getting by....
with a LOT of help from my friends.
In Christ alone,
