A Gift

A package!!! In this age of amazing technology, there is still something uniquely pleasant about getting a package in the mail.

Mine was from a precious young woman I met through that amazing technology several months ago. I read one post on her blog and was immediately drawn to her - this one young enough to be my little daughter. Her wisdom and love for the Lord, her breath-taking talent as writer, painter, and musician, and most of all her beautiful heart make her very special indeed.

She asked me what my favorite flower was and then painted this for me.

Such a gift - made with so much love. I don't have words to say how much she has touched my heart.

If you have never met Emily, please stop by for a little visit. You will want to stay a while.

Thank you so much Em. The Father has woven you, Trent and sweet baby Aiden into my heart for always.



  1. What a wonderful surprise indeed! Visited
    Emily's site and yes she is very gifted.
    I'm sure I'll visit again. I know you
    will cherish this gift forever. Who
    would have thought such friends could
    be made through the internet?
    God's grace,
