A sweet gift.

Moses received a package in the mail this week from Mary Alice Higbie, affectionately known as Emmai, the owner of the St. James Tearoom. For those of you who aren't acquainted with Emmai and have never been to her tearoom, may I suggest making a trip? What a lovely way to spend the afternoon.
I am posting a picture of Moses in the new blanket Emmai sent, but I am also going to include a bit of what Emmai wrote in her card. For me, it was a beautiful reminder of the importance of the journey that Jeremiah and I have started on.
From Emmai:
Isn't it wonderful? Aren't the possibilities enormous - & and awe inspiring just to think about?! A new little masterpiece, created for specific work - good work - by the King Himself. And you two have the enormous responsibility of shepherding & stewarding such a treasure, guiding him into the steps planned for him. The Lord Himself will help you in this task. What important work.
And Emmai says to Moses:
Dear Moses,
Each new day opens up like a flower...every hour, a petal unfolding with possibility...this is your life before the Lord, opening up, day by day, growing you towards the steps that have been planned for you from the beginning of time by your King; for you are His workmanship!

Ephesians 2:10 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
