a treasure.

Today was a day. You know, the kind of day where your like "what am I doing? I feel all wrong" - kind of day. A day where at the end of it, your head is pounding and all you want to do is crawl in bed and move on. Yah, it was that day. And than, suddenly something changed.
Tonight as I got in bed and looked around my room, my eyes fell on a small girl made of clay. She is wearing a wedding gown and is holding blue flowers. Her veil is a bit broken in the back because she has traveled with me since I was 7 years old. She is the gift my mom and dad got for me when they first went to visit Israel. She is a bride.
I have always had her. She has been on many different shelves, seen many different states, and yet has remained solid in form. Always smiling. Always there.
Out of all the gifts that my mom and dad could have gotten for me, they got me her.
To me, this is reminder that the Lord knew all the way back than, that this was to be my profession, my gifting, my calling.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.."{Prov. 29:11}
He sees my heart, has known my desires and is blessing my hands.
I love that this was my gift 24 years ago and it is still such a treasure to my heart-more than it has ever been.
