Over the years we have become quite creative in hand-making presents for our immediate family. It usually requires several months preparation time to make sure that the gift is completed in time, but to me there is nothing better than something created from my heart with my hands.
During the time that I am making a gift for someone, no matter how long it takes, I pray for the person each day that I work on their gift. It only takes a moment to lift someone up in prayer and we are commanded to pray for one another.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
So, I thought I'd give you a sneak peak into one of my projects currently in progress. I cannot say who it is for or what it will become, but I will post the finished project after the holiday season.
What are you working on for holiday gifts this year?
