Show Us Your Life-Collections

KellyShowUs

 

This is a new meme I recently joined and I’m having so much fun with.  Kelly’s Korner is a blog I’ve really enjoy visiting.  If you haven’t been there yet, you must stop by and visit!

The theme for this week is “Show us your collection”. 

When I was engaged to my husband my mother brought me this adorable “Precious Moment” figurine.  Way back then they were called “Johnathan & David”.

What drew me to these figurines was not only they were cute, but I loved the message that was written underneath each one.

It seemed like had one for every occasion in your life, the happiest times and even during your struggles.

It’s been over 33 years since I began my collection and behind each one is a very special story.  Here are a few of my favorites.

My mom brought this one to me when she visited me in the hospital after the birth of my firstborn son, Jason.  It says, “The hands that rock the future”.  I’ll cherish this forever.

 

IMG_4465A dear friend gave this one to me after I helped her through a very difficult time in her life.  It says  “You are always there for me”.

 

IMG_4463My daughter-in-love gave this one to me for my birthday.  I was so touched that she picked this one out for me.  It says, “Charity begins in the heart”.

 

I could post so many more, but I think you can see why these figurines are so very dear to my heart.  Its more than a collection to me, its a lifetime of precious memories.

 

Please join us today over at Kelly’s Korner.

Lynn said...

I have some Precious Moments myself...most given to me by friends...oh they're special.
Continuing to pray in Seattle!
Psalms 27:7-9 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

Praying!
Psalms 27:13-14: I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalms 28:6-7 Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
