Kim Klassen, of The Cafe, recently had a drawing for a gift certificate for The Noisy Cricket, a handcrafted jewelry store on Etsy. I was delighted to be the winner. Christy Moline's jewelry in that store is exquisite and original, as well as being pretty down-to-earth, which suits me well.
For my prize, I chose this beautiful necklace with ancient words of encouragement. I remember my mom singing the words to the song, His Eye is on the Sparrow, and it makes this necklace a special reminder for me.
What is the price of two sparrows--one copper coin?
But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.
And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.
So don't be afraid;
you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
Thanks to Kim for the gift, and for all her fabulous textures,
and thanks to Christy for her excellent artistry.
