Vase from India

My daughter-in-law (DIL) brought me this beautiful vase back from a mission trip to India. It is made of metal and the village people hand make them for souvenirs as their source of income. She was able to go to the village where these were made and work with the people as they were making the metal items. It is indeed a BLESSING to have a Christian DIL that sacrificed her time to go to a foreign country to minister to others and then to remember her mother-in-law in such a special way. I think of her and her sacrifice each time I fill my vase with flowers from my garden and ask God's BLESSINGS on her and the people of India that labor to make these items.

Nancy, How beautiful!! Also how wonderful to have a daughter in law and a Christian one at that too. I do not have one!! I had one for about 2 years and then she decided that she no longer wanted to be married!! Oh well maybe it was for the best!! She said she was a Christian too. Just messed up my son's life though. Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope your day is going great. Sandy

I forgot to thank you for yesterday's comment - I'm happy you've been reading our stories. They are definitely stories of God's power. We have been through it, but God has been with us every step of the way, even when we couldn't see Him or necessarily feel Him. He was there.
