My first bashed hutch. It had two doors on it and a diiffeent topper . I broke it off and replaced it with another one and moved it from the front to the back for more space.This one is mine. I also did the table and chairs. (painted and stained) This is our the group hutches all together. They are all different as we are. This was so much fun I plan on making more! click pic to see it bigger for more details.
Thought for today! God created miniatures!
Remember I said that God is in to details? My thoughts today were that God is into miniatures.. Big time! Yes! He created us tiny beings with great detail and love! He did it from the dust..from clay. How many of us love to work with clay and make lifelike minis? The more it looks life like the more joy we take in our handmade creations! I am just learning this clay stuff and I take great pleasure in it when what I make comes out really good. I feel disappointed when it doesn't. Do you know how much pleasure God takes in YOU His creation?
Think about it.. we are breathing, moving creations of clay breathed on by His own breath and became flesh but we are really much more than that, we are all one of a kind. (OOAK) Handmade and by God himself. You are very special to God! he has put His name on you signed "made by God with eternal love"
It's only through Jesus His Son that He will remake us into His likeness.
You see the clay has been marred by sin and we need Him to refashion us back into the vessel we are supposed to be. Forgiven and washed clean to do His will.
God is so Good!
This is my third project. A gift for my Secret Sister Vicky at my church. She does beautiful quilting. I asked her for quilt scraps not knowing what I was up to. I used them in the scene.She said I was the "Bomb!! " Just loved her gift at the revealing of the secret sisters. Vicky was healed from stage 4 cancer instantly after being prayed for at one Sunday Service a few years ago. She is well and doing wonderful. Glory to God! He is the God of miracles!
This nursery was my second project made in a pencil case box. I made it for AnnMarie a friend at church who was expecting her first baby in which she had prayed for a number of years. God blessed her with a baby boy ."Ryan" he now over 1 1/2 years old and she is now expecting a baby girl!!
This is one of my first little shadow boxes I madefor my son when he was promoted as worship leader at our church. I put in his favorite hymn "How great Thou Art"and his lookalike guitar, a bible, a song list on notebook paper and a pencil. Also a Scripture banner that reads "Psalms 150:4 Praise Him with stringed instruments ....." (and flutes!) he really appeciated the gift! I was so excited to have made something in miniature.
A thought for the day.. God has the created the heavens and the earth...He is the Author of creation. He is the CREATOR so a gift from God is creativity. God is in the details of my life. He cares about everything that concerns me. He sees my life ...every detail about it. He cares about the smallest things as well as important things in my ordinary life.
As a miniaturist we care about tiny details don't we? It makes our creations more special doesn't it? That's what I find so special about God in all the ways he shows me how much He really cares. He is an awesome God!
I am a born again Christian.
I love the Lord Jesus and grateful that He loves me and saved me 51 years ago. I am active in my church and have been married to a wonderful caring man for 49 years! God has blessed me with a wonderful family- a son and a daughter both married serving the Lord and now 7 lovely grandkids. God is good!
