Funny title, isn’t it?
Someone special sent me a little somethin’ somethin’ in the mail, and it came today.
Even the envelope was beautiful. (I simply must learn calligraphy someday!)
The gift was wrapped in pretty tissue and tied with a ribbon.
She gave me a beautifully handmade heart with the word HOPE on it, all done with the sweetest details; crazy stitch, ribbons, and beads galore!
And, a coffee cozy made from cherry fabric!
I looked at it and grabbed the nearest child (it was Jacob) to show him the creativity and love this person displayed. (It’s always good to use these situations to inspire the kids to good works and creativity, too.)
I’ve been crying happy tears today. The first time was when I was watching the news about those massive tornados. There was a college campus in which 51 students were injured~but, not one death. Guess Who the student they interviewed publicly gave the credit/glory to? Yes, she, a cute young college girl, gave the glory to GOD. . . . and she said it was because of prayers that no one died. I just thought that was so beautiful!
The second time I cried happy tears was when I opened this gift from Dawn.
Hope is my word of the year.
“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand–all other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.”

Thanks for the beautiful reminder of hope!
