~ Daffodils herald spring ~
Doesn't that title just make your heart zing with anticipation? Untie the Ribbons is Jill's blog and it's a great visit. Jill and I met via the One World One Heart tour a couple of years ago; can't really remember when but we began following each other. Every time I visit Untie the Ribbons, I just know it's going to be something wonderful and the anticipation is enough to make me visit again and again and...
A short while back, Jill had a gift-away and the lucky winner received one of Jill's hand crafted wool boxes. Ummmm UM! Mighty fine and the rest of us were green with envy. I even left Jill a note telling her I'd be happy to step up to the plate should her winner not be reachable. I might have even mentioned how green with envy I happened to be over her work. Jill has a big heart and contacted me to say, "want a little something?" DID I EVER?! I'm a pretty fast typist but I could hardly get out a YES, PLEASE fast enough!

This is what she sent. I bet you're green with envy now, eh? You can tell me, it's okay. This lovely creation is a wool envelope that has little square of paper upon which I'm to write my worries to God, tuck them into the envelope, turn them over to God and let Him deal with my worries. "Cast your cares upon Him for He careth for you." I love this! I love the work of Jill's heart and hands, the sentiment, the absolutely beautiful , creative way of putting into practice such Godly advice.

Jill, thank you, thank you, thankyou! You're the best and this is a fabulous gift and idea. I want to use this idea, may I, please? How wonderful to pass along something so special to someone who is going through difficulties. That's just about all of us, isn't it? Jill, how kind of you to lift me up. God's blessings upon you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. Bless you!
