We have been so very blessed by you, our friends, who gift us with beautiful things! We were surprised twice this past week with sweet, thoughtful presents from afar, including this German Easter cloth with chicks, and the handmade bunny banner in the photo below. Thank you so much, Evelyn and Devina!
Sometimes we're in such a hurry for the Savior to return and save us from the mess that we're all in, that we forget to thank Him for His presence all around us.
May His sacrifice not have been in vain for us, the poor sinful creatures that we may be. Remember that He delights in those who delight in Him, and who humbly admit that they need His Light in moments of greatest dark.
A blessed Easter to you, dear friends, from all of us at Sweete Felicity!
Thou who didst hang upon a barren tree,
My God, for me;
Tho' I till now be barren, now at length,
Lord, give me strength
To bring forth fruit to Thee.
Thou who didst bear for me the crown of thorn,
Spitting and scorn;
Tho' I till now pave put forth thorns, yet now
Strengthen me Thou
That better fruit be borne.
Thou Rose of Sharon, Cedar of broad roots,
Vine of sweet fruits,
Thou Lily of the vale with fadeless leaf,
Of thousands Chief,
Feed Thou my feeble shoots.
