I'm not sure it's ever felt so good to utter those words. Last Tuesday, April 12, my husband Jack had major heart surgery. Now he and I have moved out of Duke Hospital and back into our house. And boy, are we glad to be here!
Amazingly, I received a FedEx package just before my husband was admitted to the hospital. "What could this be?" I wondered. Then I remembered: way back in January--which seems so long ago now--I met some of the lovely folks from (in)courage. They asked if I'd like to participate in a special program to receive one of their products in exchange for writing about it on my blog. I don't think the timing could have been better for me to receive this beautiful tray:
Isn't it lovely? It's nice and big and sturdy as well as beautiful. I've already thought of several ways to use it. And can you read the words inscribed on it?
Yes, I'd say the timing was pretty good for me to receive this tray. What an excellent summary of what I've just been experiencing.
And what a lovely reminder of what we all experience every day--not just during times of crisis, not just during Holy Week, but every single day. All because of God's unfathomable love for us. I'm going to use this tray often--and every time I pick it up, I'll remember the truth of the inscription.
You probably already know that (in)courage is a division of DaySpring. DaySpring was already a favorite company of mine, long before I'd ever heard of (in)courage. Now it's much more than a favorite company. It's a source of real blessing in my life. If you've not already done so, I urge you to visit (in)courage.me and discover what blessings await you!
