Another block on my Family Blessings quilt is Gifts. When I was making my little Birdie key ring the other day I started thinking about God's goodness to me.
Four years ago we sold our house of 25 years and moved interstate. When we started house hunting we made a list of things we wanted in a house but couldn't seem to find one suitable until one day Robin was (literally) running past and saw this one which was up for sale. A week later we owned it! When we checked our 'list' we realized that God had blessed us with a house that had more than we wanted - including a perfect place to put my shed (studio).
The Bible says (Matt 7:11) that God delights in giving good things to his children and that we should never stop asking him. But as beautiful as our house is, it won't last forever while the 'good things' that God wants to give me last for eternity.
Until next time
