A Finished Christmas Gift...

I just recently finished my cross-stitching
project I was making for my friend for Christmas.
I thought I'd share a photo...

I got the quote from something I saw in a catalog,

and combined different patterns from some cross-stitch books we have.
It says:
"I don't think it just by chance, but by God's grand design;
that He has guided both our steps... to let your path cross mine."

I thought it a very fitting quote for our friendship,

as we constantly talk about how the Lord must have really planned
out our friendship, seeing we've been together 8 years
and our dads (being in the military) always get stationed at the same places!

Speaking of us, (as a side note)...

On Monday, we went around base inviting people to
our church's upcoming Pig Pickin' service.

Mom got a picture of us at one of the houses...

We had a lovely time together, walking and knocking on doors (3 hours),
and even stopped at the store for a nice cool treat Ü.
It's so great being able to do the Lord's work together.

"Two are better than one; because they
have a good reward for their labour.
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow:
but woe to him that is alone when he falleth;
for he hath not another to help him up."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
