The ceramic pieces looked beautiful placed into containers. I took a fancy to the antique sugar bowl pieces. They are delicate with a very smooth surface. The baby blue flowers reminded me of the times wonderful times I held a baby my arms, just as last week when I met my great niece Vivian for the first time. She is precious! There's not too many feelings that can compete with that.
Some friends just couldn't come today for one reason or another and they were missed. Then, one friend who said she couldn't come because of her busy Saturday routine, came after all. Everything must be in God's timing and I'm getting more relaxed learning this very gradually...the hard way. One day at a time...
Becky, used pieces of a plate which once was once a gift from her sister, to add to the cross she made for that sister. Sweet!
The memories of this Saturday will be held near my heart because the company and insight of these friends makes my heart smile. A few of the many 'God Things' (as I refer them as) on this day in reflection, thoughts and quotes:
"Oh my, this cross I made for my sister has the birth date (month, day & year) of one of her children written on one of the pieces of ceramic!"
I encouraged one friend to please take the bowl of water melon home, after all I had the other half at home in the fridge. She said the fruit she just had purchased for her meals, wasn't ripe (didn't taste all that good). She knew and trusted God to provide for her and yes, He did.
On friend brought a gorgeous wooden bracelet with the most lovely 'Our Lady of Guadalupe' Icon art on it. She said that she felt that God wanted her to bring it today, that it was for someone here. As much as I liked it...I knew instantly that it wasn't for me. "Oh my, it must be for Becky. We talked about Our Lady of Guadalupe picture for long time this morning when we shared faith".
One friend found a copy of a book that was a desire of her heart, on top of a pile of books in the tea room. She recently shared the copy of her book with someone else. Happy as a lark she is to have another copy.
Making more memories in 'The Keeping Room' was filled with blessings and I pray you will be blessed on this lovely Sunday!
