A while back I entered a draw on She Does Justice for a bracelet from The Little Mist. I was so excited when I found out that I won and Hilary contacted me to ask what bracelet I would like.
I chose the Sparrow, which symbolizes the verse:
"Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows" Luke 12:7
The bracelet was inclosed in a simple, hand crafted and thoughtful little pouch with the following message below the passage:
You are loved. You are cared for. When this tiny
sparrow catches your eye remember the creator cares for you
so much more. Give Him your worry, your fear.
Rest in him.
Some days you need a pick me up and this has been one of those days (ok weeks). It is also on days like this that I am reminded of a much larger community that I am part of, even if only through virtual contact. Never underestimate the power of a kind tweet or an email or even a blog giveaway that touches someone's heart.
