I hadn’t taken pictures of what my sister sent me so I just did that and added them to this post.
I’m amazed when I look back over my life. Didn’t I just graduate from high school? And yet, that DOES seem like a lifetime ago. But didn’t I just get married? Have my first beautiful little girl? Second? Third? Where did the time go? Amazing. And how blessed I have been. I don’t deserve it. A couple of days ago when I was ‘fluffing’ my living room and rearranging my decor I was trying to decide if I was going to include my old scales or store it again. The verse from Daniel 5:27 came to me: “thou art weighed in the balances and art found wanting.” So I paraphrased it a bit and made a banner that said, “(I am) weighed in the balances and found wanting.” I hung the banner from the scales and tucked it in my old cupboard. A reminder that we are ALL ‘wanting’. And yet God loved us so much He provided a way that we can be weighed and the scale will balance. Through Jesus the scale will balance every time. HE IS THE ONLY WAY. Praise His name that he was willing to be that WAY. I’m thanking Him today for blessing my life for the past 35 years and I’m trusting Him to be with me in all my tomorrows, come what may. Hallelujah!
Isn’t this the cutest pitcher? We got my Mom one at McMaster and Storm when they were still in their building in Greenville and I’ve wished I had one ever since. So my sis got this one when she found it in a store near her.
It now sits on my dining room table with a ranunculus bouquet in it.
Travis cut down a bunch of my chives that were blooming and made me a ‘bouquet’! How’s that for birthday flowers??!!
This is my present from Travis. I’ve wanted one for a long time so he surprised me with one last night. I’m loving it already. Gentle rainfall in the shower!
My Mom and Dad gave me this!!!!!! I was so surprised:-) I’d wanted one ever since Kara told me they might be getting them for the store. Mom remembered and got me one. I didn’t know she got it and I hadn’t thought any more about it since McMaster and Storm closed their brick and mortar store and went totally online. Thanks Mom, I loved being surprised with it. Now I’ve GOT to go to a flea market this summer.
