The Fruit of the Spirit

Hello... I created this shadow box gift as a birthday present for my friend Mirari. This has been a very difficult year for this young woman who had suddenly and sadly lost her husband some months back. I wanted to make her something special, created with love, that will remind her that Jesus and her friends care and love her.

That her life is a tree with abundant fruit of love, joy, happiness, patience, grace...
And the love of Jesus shines through her- in her work as a pediatric ER doctor and all the little ones that she sees every day.

And then, I made a matching birthday card...

and stamped these words inside:

I hope she likes it...

Thank you for stopping by.

Blessings and hugs,

This is a great use of a button on the bird's wing. Thank you for sharing. I'm sure your friend loves her present.
