~Testimony Tuesday~

Right before Christmas, my neighbor called and said that I needed to come over and see what they were doing and join in...

I went over and my neighbor and her mom had been painting ornaments.. Her mom was painting these BEAUTIFUL birds on the ornaments... She would just look at a picture of them and free hand it... It was crazy! It is not like she does this for a living or anything... I don't even know if she realized how beautiful they really were..

I saw that she had painted a red bird (Cardinal) on one and it immediately made me think of my mother-n-law.. She loves red birds and so do I... They remind her of her mom and they remind me of the Lord... Every time I see one, it is just the right time and usually confirmation for something..
I said how much my mother-n-law loved them and asked if she could make one for her and I would pay her... But, I told her that only to do it if she got the chance, and not to worry about it if she could not...

I never heard anything else about it...

Last year I looked up what the red bird symbolizes and found this: Christened the Christmas bird for its spectacular red color, the cardinal has become a symbol of the beauty and warmth of the holiday season. A glimpse of this brilliant bird brings cheer, hope and inspiration on a gray, wintry day. As natures reminder for us to focus on our faith, the cardinals scarlet plumage represents the blood of Christ shed for the redemption of mankind.

Then a day or two before Christmas my neighbor shows up with a bag... I opened it and it was an ornament... And the awesome God thing about it was, it had TWO red birds on it.. One for her mom and ONE for my Lord!!! Thank YOU Lord!!

One more thing... I got up this morning, and was talking to the Lord about something that I feel like HE has asked me to do... He has already confirmed, but then I thought that maybe it really was not confirmation, otherwise why would I be going through such a tough time, so I asked HIM to PLEASE confirm it, if it was REALLY HIM..

I sat down to do this blog, and my son says something to me from downstairs, and as I look that way to speak to him, I look out the window and there is a red bird all by itself, sitting on a branch.. If Drake would not have said anything, I would have been typing away and wouldn't have seen it... So, there was my confirmation again! Thank You Lord!!
