Manifold

Tamborine
“Manifold” Tambourine

Many kinds; numerous and varied:

Are God’s Grace and Wisdom shown

To beings in the heavenlies

And to those in the world

By us the church on earth

If we minister

To one another

With our

Gifts

Nonet

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Peter 4:10

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:10

(The photo is of one of my Tambourines that I use in praise and worship. I name all my Tambourines as I feel each instrument has a different purpose. This Tamborine I named “Manifold” because it reflects light in so many ways. I use it in worship to praise God for His Manifold Grace And Wisdom according to the scriptures 1 Peter 4:10 and Ephesians 3:10 )

To My Younger Self

Old woman with young woman

I once was you before you were me.

If I’d known then, what I know now,

I would have told you this:

Remember your creator

in the days of youth,

And listen to

Your parents

Stories,

For

Times

Will come

When you will

Wish you had done

All of that and more.

I would have told you

To plan well for your future

Since someday you would grow old,

Wish you had, but it would be too late.

New Year Treasure

8 Point Star table top

The New Year brings Life,

New Beginnings and Promises of Restoration and Redemption,

A Baptism in Hope, Wisdom, and Guidance for those willing to seek Him

Cherita

A couple of days ago I was blessed to find a most unique dining room table at a local thrift store.

I was in need of a new dining table and had been searching for a long time for a small dark wood table.

I was about to give up hope as every table was either the wrong size or color, therefore I decided I would just buy a table cloth for my old light colored one and look for some dark colored chairs instead.

So on a recent visit to another thrift store I found some dark colored wood chairs that I figured would be ok. They weren’t the best but they were very low priced and sturdy. I figured I could clean them up a bit and they would do me just fine with the new tablecloth.

However, while walking toward the cashier to purchase them I happened to pass by a very unique small round dark colored wood table that I hadn’t previously seen. It had an inlaid wood top with an eight point star in the middle and scallops around the edges. The legs were decorative metal in a scroll type pattern. It was such a beautiful table! Just the right size and color and perfect for me! It was priced very low too! I had found my table at last, and even better it had meaning for me, because the eight point star has many meanings in history and culture, some I found were: Redemption, Regeneration, Baptism, Life, Hope, New Beginnings, Guidance and Wisdom.

It has also been called “The Star of Melchizedek” and is the traditional pattern for winter clothing in Norway and my dad was Norwegian.

I feel this table is a blessing and though it needs a bit of refinishing , it is definitely a rare find and treasure to me!
