Sometimes there are just surprises in your day.....
last week when I got home from travels
I had a couple of gift packages that had come in the mail....
|Art Print from Faith Artist- Amber Skeeters|
|Lovely card with photo|
A gift out of the blue--
I had found her shop on Facebook
and given her just a few words of encouragement as a faith artist....
God must have used those words very powerfully.
Another gift - this one a book from my friend Sybil MacBeth-
author of Praying In Color.
A lovely book showing the blessings of living in a
liturgical year of celebrations.
A book from Paraclete Press that she wanted me to take a look at and see
the wonderful ideas of author Jerusalem Greer.
Two women in Tennessee,
one I have met, the other not.
It is not a small feat
to package something,
find the address,
go to the post office and
mail a gift.
But, perhaps I find too many excuses
not to this in my weeks.
It is painting a day
with sunshine for the recipient.
and gracefully received.
My thank yous sent.
And my heart still rests in gratitude.
