has a birthday on Tuesday. She is a remarkable woman! She graduated from nursing school when I was a toddler, then followed her calling as a missionary nurse in Central Africa. After 25 years there, she retired - learned another language - then shared the Gospel in Portugal for 10 years. She returned to the States a couple years ago and bought a townhouse a couple miles from me. Here are a few pillows I made for her "nest".
Tomorrow I will go pick her up to take her to lunch at the Corner Bakery Cafe. Before we leave, I will give her this:
I love this verse in Isaiah because we live in a desert. Roses are my favorite flower. Aunt M has a watercolour of poppies which hangs near the couch where I hope this pillow will land.
