Pinterest...Proverbs...and a Package

Last fall I was introduced to Pinterest.  Being a visual person, this avenue of interest has been one that has pulled me in.  Being mindful of mindlessly viewing the millions of Pinterest boards and pinning endless ways to create, decorate and reorganize ones life,  I have tried to limit myself to small increments of Pinterest time.

When I originally started this blog, I had and continue to have the women in my past and present life in mind.  Again, as a tribute to them.  My mother, who is 83, has a Pinterest account.  She has committed for the last few years and the present to care for my father who has Parkinsons.  Not an easy position to be in.  Mom has never been known to be idle (putting it mildly).  Or, to have idle hands.  She amazes me with her God given talent.  God says in his word that we are his "workmanship".  Another word for workmanship is "Masterpiece".  No matter where we are in life or what position we're in, we are His creation.  Beautiful.

Today, I received a package in the mail from mom for my birthday.  She is one of my followers on Pinterest. I'm not much of a dreamer, but I like pinning practical ideas and things that catch my eye.  One thing recently, was this beautiful shawl.  Is it something I would go out and purchase?  Probably not.  But on Pinterest, it's my "style."

In my package was this....


Thanking God for the blessing that she is!

                             Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.  Prov. 31:31
