Inside was a personal inscription wishing me and my family a wonderful Christmas and New Year with a p.s. saying "See ya in January."
I puzzled over who sent this, concentrating on the location and last name of the sender. No luck. So I set it aside.
Later, I lifted it again and looked at the beautiful crochet work. Such a sweet and personal Christmas gift. Suddenly knew who had made it. My daughter's friend, Amanda!
Amanda has been coming to a prayer shawl group once a month at my house. I knew her first name, but I didn't know where she lived or even her last name. I only knew her as a beautiful, funny, sweet, and caring person. The other things didn't matter. I knew her heart.
Until the card arrived, I didn't realize how little I knew about her other than that. This brought to mind, how God knows each of us so well. He knows the number of hairs on our head and He knew us before we were conceived. Where we live, what surnames we have...those aren't really important. What is important is how we live our lives with a loving heart...like Amanda.
Proverbs 27:19 As in water face reflects face, so a man's heart reveals the man.
