I thought I'd share a few more special "Christmas gifts" with you. You may have already seen this picture on my Facebook page. These are our kids (aka "The Newlyweds") along with my hubby, and he is showing a special gift that our son made for him.
Here's the story. When my father in law died in 1995 my mother in law was given this beautiful big American flag because he was a veteran and was given a veteran's burial.
|My Mother in law had written this note to keep with the flag.|
|And yes, those are his glasses in that case...|
He also was a carpenter, and in addition to building houses he also built some special pieces of furniture.
And so, this past Christmas, since it was the first Christmas since "Nanny" (my mother in law) had passed away, we thought this would be a good time to make some special family gifts from Granddaddy Martin's cedar chest of drawers. Hence, our son made the flag case for my hubby.
Not wanting to leave out my husband's brother, our son also created something special for him from the cedar wood: I'm sorry this picture isn't real clear, and actually I turned it around upside down
because the shelf is still sitting on the floor, waiting to be hung on the wall.
Not to be left out, my son also made something special for me:
Yes, this beautiful new cedar bird feeder! It is so pretty that I hate to let it get messed up with bird seed. I am thinking I will save it for when we move to our new house (sometime in the future...who knows when? God knows!!)...
and even then I may just have to decorate it and keep it inside...not sure that I want birds pooping on this...
What about you? I hope you are also feeling "abundantly blessed". God has been so good to us.
I am looking forward to seeing what you've been doing this past week. Let us hop on over to Deb's place at Breathing in Grace and check up on the rest of our Friday Foto Friends.
Until next time...here's some verses about "Abundance" (my One Word for 2019)
