Sarah’s Shadow Box

Sarah's Shadow Box

Sarah's Shadow Box

The Aunt’s also known as the Ya’Ya’s went around the tables of Sarah and Ryan’s Reception and “borrowed” stuff to put in this box as a rememberance. It’s fun, if you can get past the gawking eyes as they watch us with a bag hollering ‘do we have one of these?’ Oh! Another one won’t hurt. Since they were married in January I figured it was time to get this together and present it to them before their 50 th. A real testemony of praying over our youth. ‘God’s best and no less.’……………………………………………Judah!

Surprises

I have always know it was great to have birthdays. Even as I mature (I am not getting older, I am living long) and find myself at the year where I can sign up for Social Security! Birthdays are special. Maybe because I have two special, no make that three special birthday gifts given to me at age 6, age 7 and age 26 I am still enjoying. That would be my two brothers and a niece. My attitude about this day is my belief that all heaven is in great celebration over us on our birthday because that was the day God sought fit to birth us into this world for His plans and purposes. There is never a mistake about our birth. The paths and journey along the way may be in question. He is still big enough to get us back on the right path.

Speaking of paths. My path intersected with the path of Abigail (aka 1870 Pearl) in the fall of last year. We became fast friends through our love for Jesus and of coarse knitting. She has turned me into a sock knitter.  Imagine that! Abigail surprised me with the cutest Knitting Emergency Bag that I can stash supplies in, keep in my car or always ready to take with incase there is time to get a few stitches or rows done while waiting. It reminds me of my knitting buddies in Vero Beach who knit at red lights.

Last night couldn’t have been a better birthday night since it was knit nite with other knitting buddies. More surprises. Faith brought me a singing card she actually sang to me. That was so sweet.  Also a hefty start towards my swifter and ball winder. Knit Picks here I come. I am so proud of her working a sock with small needles. Gussets too! You go gal!

 Charly made me a toe ring. What a gal. She is our creative re-cycle queen. Since she can only use natural fibers she finds many of them in sweaters at the local ‘previous loved’ stores.  She takes them apart and makes wonderful socks, sweaters and tops. If they don’t come apart easily she’ll felt them and make something out of them that way. Charly is very creative and we look forward to seeing or hearing about her new projects.

What a wonderful day to spend with people I care about, either by phone, e-mail or personally. Come to think of it every day is like that, isn’t it?  We don’t always see it as a celebration of our lives. When we are on the mountain top or trying to hide in a cave in the valley we can always find something to celebrate the life God has given us. Look around and celebrate too…………. Judah
