A photo of a gift basket that was sent to me by friends that I have never met face to face but feel I have known all of my life. I met Catherine and her wonderful husband through a Christian Team on Etsy.com. They are a delightful couple who share my love for the Lord. In early January, when we were awaiting a snow storm here in the not so sunny South, they thought of me and sent a basket of goodies. The card said they did this for two reasons: 1) They love me and my hubby and 2) wanted us to have some snacks while watching football (BTW, my favorite team is the Steelers! Have loved them since the 70s...Go Steelers!) How thoughtful and kind and generous! They often do things like this. They reach out in love with the perfect words to comfort, cheer and encourage and they know how to brighten a day with their wit!
Today Catherine and Hank are my Fingerprints of God. They are often God's hands and feet and I love them so much. Thanks for the caring, uplifting and wonderful surprises that make knowing you such a blessing! We will meet one day, here or on the other side of the river!
