Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.

Do you like to give gifts? Do you like to watch the face of those unwrapping them? I do like both of these but I HATE WRAPPING the gifts up. I am one to use gift bags, and pre-printed boxes so that I don't have to wrap.
There is one gift you can give that you don't have to wrap. The gift of eternal life! It is amazing to know that this gift was given to us - unwrapped with the exception of the swaddling clothes He was wrapped in at birth and the funeral cloth that was wrapped before they laid in the tomb that didn't hold HIM.
How much love that was shown us because we were not worthy of this gift. How can we not share this love with others?
I pray that you are blessed with the grace of His love! I pray you let it shine in your life.
Much love to all!
