Last Saturday, I was blessed with the opportunity to spend a quiet morning with God and with other sisters from my church. We had a refreshing time as we were reminded that God loves us for who we are and not for what we do. He desires to have a relationship with us and was, is, and always will be passionately delighted with us because he created us and knew us before we were even conceived. The idea of the two Adirondack chairs was from my friend ,Robby Kautz, who was also the speaker for the day. She was driving one day and saw two child-size Adirondack chairs and the idea made an impression on her. Small postcard-size replicas of the painting was given to all the women who attended to remind them that God invites us as little children to come to Him unhindered.
This is a gift for my friend and band mate Beth on her birthday next month. She is such a gifted musician not only with her French horn but also with her cello (see the post on “Sofia”). I was challenged by the twists and turns of the tubing but in the end, I think they came out just fine. With the red hair, the green gown, and the almost Celtic design of the horn, it has an Irish air about it.
