The Ornament Exchange

Over 15 years of ornaments,
12 new handmade ones each year.
Each one is different.
Each one wonderful in their own way.
Some painstakingly ornate,
some lovingly hand stitched,
some rustic country, some shabby chic,
some painted with great detail,some with treasures from the past,
and some with spiritual meaning.
They were made using wood,
fabric, sticks, wire, buttons, old lace,
spoons, nails, teabags, clothespins,
and anything else that looked like it
wanted to be an ornament.
But all made with a ton of love by and
for each member of the group.

I think that it is safe to say that as
each member made their 12 ornaments
for the exchange it was with those other
members in mind-thinking of them,
praying for them, remembering past gatherings.

What precious times we have shared!

This wonderful collection ornaments
is a lot like each one of us-
all different and each one unique, beautiful,
charming, funny, special, detailed, rustic,
and handmade by our Creator
to be a blessing to others!
