I received this felted postcard from sue on the FAT Felt Like Winter trade.
What i really love about this card are the three feathers. They represent each one of my sons in the galaxy. Her little card enclosed shared she is an original felt doll maker. Check out her website. Sue also enclosed more felted beads. You can really see it but the orange ball is an actual felted ball. The dimension in this is wonderful.
In my daily Bible reading I am in the story of Joseph. He had a dream and shared it with his family - 10 brothers and father. They were not to happy that he saw them bowing down to him.
Through many false imprisonments and accusations he has not defended himself but left it up to God. I don't think I would have been so silent. But now he has been made second in command only underneath the pharaoh. He is responsible for handing out all the food in the land bc of a famine. His brothers have come down from Canaan to purchase food from him. They do not know who he is bc they believe him to be dead. His heart is so toward his father and youngest brother - the only other child by his mother.
Well what do you think after all these years the brothers are doing but bowing down to their brother? Twists of events in our lives shape us and develop character us in to help us accept the challenges that lie ahead. What turn-of-events are shaping your life right now?? Can you see the big picture of why GOD has allowed past events to happen in your life.
Every day I am very aware of the chosen word for me this year - "Healing". I ponder the twisting of the mind that would move a man who loves his only son and wife to take his own life.
Desperate times should lead us to fall on our face before God and cry out to him. He makes all the difference in the world.
