Rena and Jenny's Cake Carriers

Just finished two cake plates and a cookie jar for my sisters. Now I just have to finish my cookies and cheesecakes and then I can't wait to give them. I'm already excited about what I might make them next year! I just love homemade gifts, I honestly think I like giving them better then anyone likes getting them.

Sharing God's love with a loaf of bread.

What an ablsolutley wonderful day! I had so much fun delivering homemade bread to neighbors and friends. I also carried a jar of my orange marmalade along with each loaf. I told my husband that I had Christmas today...One of my neighbors that I normally just send a card to had been on my mind a lot lately so I decided to carry her some bread. She had seen me from the window as I walked up the driveway and tears filled her eyes as she realized I was bringing her a gift. She just couldn't beleive that I would think to bring her something, especially since she is caterer and is always cooking for everyone else. As I wisherd her Merry Christmas she begin to cry harder and then told me that she has just found out that the doctors had found another spot on her dads liver. God opened the door for me to pray for her and we then we laughed and cried together. We never know when God has an apppointed time and place for us to be to do his work and share His love. Always keep your hearts open to hear His voice and allow Him to use you...

We all need each other

~How do you really express to God how awesome you think He is and how much you appreciate all that He does for you.

~My mom had surgery last week a very simple procedure, but never the less you always worry.

~My dad had heart valve replacement today, and the doctors say he is doing great.

~While at the hosptial a young man came into the waiting room and began to cry uncontrollably; I couldn't just watch so I went over and began to talk to him. His wife had given birth to their first child by C-section last Monday. He had rushed her back to the hopital tonight with complications. While talking with him they called my family out to go see my dad in recovery, as I looked back where David sat alone and then back at my family I realize how blessed I was to be there with
people who loved me. It was so difficult to pull myself away from him, so as soon as
saw my dad I made my way back to David to make sure he was okay. Before I left his wife had come through surgery and was stable. It makes me wonder if in the grand scheem of things that maybe God orchastraed daddys surgery for an appointed time so I could be there for David. Daddys surgery time was changed 3 times, which put me in that waiting room at the same time this young man needed someone. I think we miss God so often becuase we don't realize how in control He is or how very involved He is in our lives when we allow Him to be.
