A Celebration and A Runner

I have been away for awhile but we have had individuals staying at our home in conjunction with an Acts 1:8 celebration that has been held at our church.  It was absolutely wonderful.

Acts 1:8 - But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes to you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.  (NIV)

We had 2 great guys staying with us.

This is Tim and he lives in Nairobi, Kenya.  He has lived there for over 20 years and does amazing work.  His parents were there when he was a small child so he has lived there more than in the states.  He works for the mission board for our denomination.

This is Eric.  He lives in Pensacola, Florida and also works for the mission board for our denomination. 
Both of these men have a great heart for the Lord and are doing amazing work.  We really enjoyed having them in our home and learned so much from them.

Now on to the runner part of my post.  Well, ladies, I got the most amazing table runner from Kimblerly.  Here is a picture of the envelope I received it in.  I was so excited.

Here is the cutest card that was included.  It has cherries on it just like the runner.
This is the cutest cherry ribbon that was wrapped around the runner.  She is so clever.

Here it is all wrapped up with the cute cherry ribbon.

And tada - here it is laid out on my table.  I didn't get a real good full shot but this is the majority of it.  The picture does not do it justice.

You can't see it clearly here, but her handstitching is absolutely perfect and everything is put together so perfect.  If you want something great, just contact Kimberly.

I will be back later in the week with a post of something that is going on in our area this weekend.  In the fall, we always have something going on around here.

Blessings to you all.
