A Widow's Handcrafted Ornament

Dear Readers,
I was so pleased to see a photo of this wonderful ornament in my email yesterday. Turns out it was an anniversary date for the sender, which touched my heart. Read on to find out how Angela made this and her special Christmas wishes for everyone.
Angela, thank you for sending me this, it's just beautiful! You put a lot of thought, skill and love into making it and I know that friends here will want to use your idea to create this heirloom for themselves. 
I look forward to posting another ornament tomorrow too! Maybe we'll even get to see yours---just email me the photo and what you'd like to say about--WCplace@gmail.com        ~Ferree

This will be my 3rd Christmas without my love, but yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of his death. Here is an Ornament I made for myself and my children. I got the bulbs from the craft store, rubbed a little glue and dropped some glitter in there. Used a piece of my husband’s t-shirt and ironed on his picture and a scripture that comforted me along with his name and dates he was here on earth.

I also bought some tiny vials and put some of his ashes in them so everyone would have a part of him forever. I hope this gives someone else some ideas for keepsakes.

Merry Christmas all. Remember we are celebrating because of what God did for us, and because of the precious gift of his Son we can be comforted knowing our husbands are in paradise with our Lord. We are also comforted by the knowledge that Jesus will never leave us in this state of grief alone. He never leaves us or forsakes us. I pray that all the widows find comfort in Him this Christmas season. - Angela
