Thankful Thursday #57

I am so thankful for so many things everyday.

I love it when my nieces and nephews pop in for a visit.

I live on the same street with my parents and sister and her family.  My sister and her husband, who were childhood sweethearts, have 5 sweet kids.  They will surprise me sometimes and I love it!  They are 7, almost 9, 11, 14, and 16.  I know it won't be long before they don't have time for me so I cherish each visit!

My nieces love my jewelry.  I love making pieces for them.

I am thankful for all five of them, and I am thankful for the new charm I got in a few days ago.  I have a feeling my nieces are going to be dropping in when I am making pieces with this new charm.  All of my charms are for all ages, but this one definitely speaks to young girls.

I think every girl at some time has done the He loves me, He loves me not, with flowers.  We used to do a crazy thing with apple stems. We would twist them while saying the alphabet.  We would make a complete twist for each letter and the letter the stem came off with was supposed to be the letter of your future husband's last name.

This charm takes away all of the chance and question.  It has one petal gone and He loves me ending with a period.  We don't have to question God's love.  It is there for us no matter what.  It is the sweetest love there is and it came from someone who died to know us.

The charm has a pretty pink heart on the cross and the verse Romans 5:8:

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I also got in some new gemstones!  I can't wait to work with these.

Mahenge Spinel

Ethiopian Opal

I also got in these gorgeous balls of pink and red with Pave Diamond stars.

Please keep a check on my Etsy shop.  I am going to be organizing pieces that are already in there and I will be adding new pieces.  I have other charms in production.  I am really excited about the next group.  It's a different, but very exciting, idea!
