I have long believed that one of our greatest gifts are the special people God puts in our life. Tonight my nephew and his family showed up at our door with a handcrafted bed that he had been building in his wood shop since last October. Vance, Brandy, 13 year old Cody and 3 year old Karter all helped in the assembly. The memory foam mattress was a Christmas gift from our son, Chris. This new hand crafted wood bed was a labor of love by some special people. When things seem to be falling apart at every level, it is the special people in our lives that keep things in prospective.
We are all imperfect but as long as we strive to be a little more like the example Jesus set, then we are on the right path. If we didn't have folks who cared, our accomplishments would mean nothing. Love and allow others to love you. Remember, God loved us so very much that He gave His son to save us. We certainly value our beautiful new bed but value the love with which it was made even more.
