I get by....


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!


"Content"

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........

Get this...

"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,
Cindy

That's what real life friends and virtual friends are for.
I always think that....who knows when any of us will be the one in "need" for whatever reason.

Happy weekend to you!

Thank you so for stopping by my blog today and leaving some sweetness. Wow your post was precious.......God has definitely wrapped His huge arms around you, by using some very very sweet friends. What a reminder of His great love He has for you! Loved the bread pans story........details.....sweet friend.

I love all your pic's.....very very nice. I once had a hand mixer sort of like that.......wonder where it went?

Have a wonderful worship day with the Father.....loved how He met you last Sonday.
Hugs from my farm, oh got to go and see willow. She is huge......hoping for two, but I will take one and be satisfied.

Your cats are so pretty! I wish we had a tree outside for a feeder. Unfortunately the wind got all trees but one and it's nowhere near a window. I do miss feeding the feathered friends. I love all your gifts! Beautiful work. You have some talented blogger friends!! :)
