Isn't it fabulouso? And Erica...zoom in on the pics on the wall. Haha.
(Weird how your smile can look okay in the mirror, and you take a photo and it turns out horrible!)
While we're on this topic, I thought I would post a couple pics of other VERY special gifts that I have received. :) Mariah sent me this one for Christmas 2006... (these are old pics)
Isn't that the most gorgeous scarf you've ever seen? I LOVE it!!! If I hadn't received this, I probably wouldn't have learned to crochet. :)
And this, I mean, a handmade skirt? It's one of my absolute favourites! Maya (Mariah) made it for me for my birthday last April.
I also received a cross-stitched kitten/puppy thing that said 'A friend knows all about you and STILL likes you' from Maya this Christmas, but I can't find the pic!At the time I received these gifts, I hadn't met the giver. Can you believe it? Such special tokens of love from friends you've never even hugged. Goodness, crazy!
So, the moral of the story is this: You can bless people greatly through gifts. Not that we should give gifts just because 'it's the thing to do', but because we can be a blessing. And of course, we must remember that gifts come in the form of just a phone call or a note too. These gifts can mean the most of all!
Give in the name of Jesus!
