Every Home Needs a Doll or Two

I have a friend who agrees with me that a Home is not complete without a Doll. 
In High School, I handcrafted pillows and stuffed animals for all of my relatives and friends, so recently,
I tried my hand at Doll Making. 

This Bunny was purchased 25 years ago
as I gathered
items for our home
as a new bride.
He still brings me joy, and
gives the warmest hugs!

God has plans - not problems - for our lives.

"Before she died in the concentration camp in Ravensbrück, my sister Betsie said to me, “Corrie, your whole life has been a training for the work you are doing here in prison - and for the work you will do afterward.”

Strong Spirited Children

A child's spirit is like a child,
you can never catch it by running after it...
you must stand still, and,
for love,
it will soon itself come back." --Arthur Miller
