Windowsill Angel


This little windowsill angel sits on a shelf over my kitchen sink along with some of my collection of Mary Engelbreit mugs and teacups. A friend crafted it for me after I admired hers. It's approximately 6 1/2" tall by 2 1/2" wide by 3/4" deep and made of painted wood. The handwritten poem on front says:
 
"Here sits your Windowsill angel
A gentle reminder to pray;
Have you stopped to give thanks
For God's love today?

 

My Thanks:
1. One of my favorite verses = "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!" (1 John 3:1). Thank you God for your LOVE!
2. I'm thankful for all those courageous moms out there who hold their children accountable.
3. I'm thankful that our son continues to have a job! And I am thankful for the creative way his supervisors found to keep him employed in the slow season!
4. I'm thankful for the extra tomatoes that a friend shared with us from her garden. They were delicious!
5. Creative ideas -- I spied hand-lettered chalk art Thank You Cards in a flea market magazine last weekend.

    1. No, I am not incredible, but my God is! I'm just an ordinary person with struggles too and HE knew what you needed at this time, so whatever I said in the post above that blessed you so, I'm thankful to have been used of God to convey it. Keep looking up!

    1. Dear Anonymous, You may follow me by email if you so choose. Insert your email address into the little box "Follow by Email" above the "Stephanie Ackerman's Documented Faith 365" box over on the side menu and the gadget will send you a notice when I post. For many years I've struggled with my "uniqueness" but I see God had his hand in designing my different way of looking at things and I've been told it can be a good thing if I let it be so. Blessings!
