The Project

This weekend I finished a craft project I have been planning for several weeks.  I love to make a project that I know is going to go to someone as the hands and feet of Christ.  This one is on its way to a walk to Emmaus.  
The pieces.

The tools.
The pretty.




The ouch.

The almost finished.

Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession. Deuteronomy 14:2b NIV

I went on my walk in Oct of 2001 and I found out that God can work through paper and plastic beads, through the work of someone's hand.  To know that they would do this, prayerfully for you, to show you His love for you. 

One of my favorite verses, it just keeps coming up; 
1 John 4:19  "We love because he first loved us."  
I am no one to judge.  Who am I to through stones at anyone for the things that they have done.  I myself am a much forgiven women.  I feel the banner I wear is "one who is forgiven much, loves much."  I have been forgiven much. What little I do pales in comparison to the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  

I saw this video on the internet cafe website, check it out.

  The question leaves me thinking, how do I live my life for Christ?  The answer comes in sharply, what little I do . . .

I agree with you, because I also have seen little handmade gifts change lives.

God is so very good.
