Shanna S. started our evening with a devotion which focused on taking the hurry out of the “holidays” and replacing it with a new focus… hurrying to Jesus. We can lose focus on what the real meaning of Christmas is while getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of this busy time of year.
Our evening continued by sitting around our tables and trying to string the smallest beads (which are very similar in size to a piece of nano-pea or teensy micro-pod) onto a stretchy and wobbly string. It appears that crafting is a talent which I do not possess. Vonda was extremely patient as we all attempted to craft these beautiful, but nearly impossible-to-tie-like-the-picture-says-so bracelets. The final product? A wonderful silver and beaded faith bracelet.
The colored beads symbolize the following:
Black is a reminder of our sin-stained heart.
Red is for the love shown to us by Jesus who shed His blood for us.
White is for purity that only comes from Jesus.
Green is for the gift of new life.
Blue is for the waters of baptism.
Aqua is for trust.
Pink is for Peace.
While we crafted away, the evening was spent sharing stories from our hearts. I am so thankful for each one of you that are part of this group.
