I only asked for one thing for Christmas...
well technically I asked for two things but I only asked for one thing from my beloved.
Years ago we were given an old window frame from our nephew and niece when their old house was laid flat to make room for their new home.
That frame had been sitting in our shop since then while I waited for an idea of how to use it.
The idea came to me early in December and once my Christmas wish was thought out loud ...
he spent spare moments in the shop working on my gift.
Years of painted window sills that have seen the best the northeastern storms here in the valley have to offer.
He wanted to know if I wanted it painted to make it more even.
I wanted it left as original as possible because life isn't always perfect.
Through the years there are storms to weather.
It is good to remember that we are never alone in the storms.
I've been reminded lately that God has given us a precious gift of intercessory prayer.
When you belong to the body of Christ you are not alone asking God to be near...
you are surrounded by an army of prayer warriors who carry you.
Thanking the Lord today for his love...
shown to me in so many ways.
all for now...
