This is just such a fun gift idea, I cannot wait to share this guest post from Kris’ blog. I don’t think Christa would mind one bit if you borrowed this idea!

IMG_4668These three items are gifts from a precious friend that has been in my life for over 20 years.  I cannot even imagine my life without her and I am so thankful that we get to do this life together as well as worship our Lord together forever!  Her friendship and love for me is a gift that I treasure everyday.  Her laughter and smile and insight enrich my life.  She has taught me so very much over the years.  She has taught me that it’s good to say “no” when your schedule or life really doesn’t permit a “yes”.  She has taught me the necessity of rest and personal retreat.  And she has walked along side me pursuing God’s truth for many years, and I adore her.  She has prayed over me and with me, cried healing tears with me, and laughed with me more times than we can count.  These gifts of tin, glass, and wood are just three of the fun things that Angie has given me over the years.  The gift of tin is a star ornament with a plaque that says “believe” stamped onto it. This adorns my tree each year along with a few other ornaments she has given me.  The gift of glass is the beautiful jar which holds various items throughout the year.  And the gift of wood is a carved heart that rests in different nooks and crannies around my home.  Every time I see these beautiful gifts, I smile knowing that Abba has given us a most beautiful gift in our friendship that is securely bound by His amazing love for us.  Thank You, Abba, for my beautiful Angie.

IMG_4665  a friend loves at all times  Proverbs 17:17IMG_2306

“So beautiful…love that they grow wild, like a present! ”
This was in response to a picture I sent my precious friend, Angie. The exact words my heart felt when I saw the wild roses blooming in our back yard. We’ve been working on this wild rose bush for three years, & Father God gifted me with sweet blossoms. Then my Parker came home & gifted me with more beautiful cut flowers. Presents are fun and all around. Keep your eyes & heart open for the ones Father God has for you this day.

James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Heavenly Lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

November 4th is almost over.  This verse has been floating through my head and heart all day.  Today is my firstborn’s birthday.  Thirteen years ago this day, I gave birth to a most precious and very good gift.  Thank You, Abba, for entrusting her to us.
