A Beautiful Gift

A while back a friend asked me to make a shawl for a lady she worked with who was going thru some hard times. Well today she sent me a "thank you" gift that brought tears to my eyes. This beautiful plaque that has the most wonderful prayer on it. Let me read it to you:

A Prayer for You
I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard. I felt the answer in my heart, although He spoke no word. I didn't ask for wealth or fame - I knew you wouldn't mind. A asked Him to send treasures of a far more lasting kind. I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day, to grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way. I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small. But it was for His loving care I prayed for most of all.

Isn't that beautiful? I love it and it now has a special place in my kitchen where I will see it at the beginning of every new day. I feel that I am truly blessed.
She also included this sweet ornament which says "Hope" on one side and a beautiful Bible verse on the other. "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

I also included a picture of the stump work ornament that Jenn made me last year. It's one of my most prized ornaments.

May all you days be filled with love,
As always, Barbara
