God's Timing is Always Perfect

Lisa from Ivory Blush Roses,has a beautiful blog that I have enjoyed for some time now.
 I've enjoyed her journey's, and her joy's and wept with her through her sorrows.
For several days, I have been following her progress on this beautiful 
cardinal pin cushion she was creating.  It's stunning.
Last week, she asked for my address to send me a Christmas card
.  When I went to the mailbox yesterday, I was stunned to find this gorgeous creation. 
 It had more meaning to me than Lisa could know. 
 Losing my mother that morning, I was not in the greatest of shape. 
 But this special gift I received was much more than expected. I'd say, a small miracle. 
 My mother loved cardinals, they were her favorite bird. 
She loved to watch them at the feeders outside our childhood home. 
 She also had a collection of cardinals that were displayed in her home. 
 Receiving Lisa's special gift, and on the day my mother died, was a true gift of love
  from both Lisa and our God. 
 How was she to know, when to send it so that it arrived when I needed it most. 
 A true miracle. You can read more about how this came about by clicking on her link, 
and reading her beautiful post.  I can't thank you enough Lisa, you, to me,
 are a true gift from God and I will treasure you and my pinchushion always.
 God Bless You from the bottom of my heart.

I was so sad to read your post about your Mom. Oh the joy she is feeling now though! Oh Laurie, how precious that our dear Lord has removed deaths sting for His children and as He promised when we are out of the body we are in His presence. You are a special blogging friend and will continue to be in my prayers as you move through your grief. What a lovely gift .....blogging friends are so special! Lots of love to you and your family 💗

Oh, Laurie, this is so wonderful! God is so very, very indescribably good. Have a bountifully blessed day. Sending love and hugs to you.

You are so right, what a miracle! And a comfort, and love all around. When we had a memorial service for my beloved step-dad, outside here at the house, we noticed, just before prayer, that a blue bird flew up from the edge of the pond. We've never seen a blue bird here, but they were John's favorite.
