ETA: Thank you to the commenter below, Nccagou for linking up the pattern!! She says, “You can find the pattern here : Reprint of the “Home Sweet Home” leaflet”! Her blog is in Portuguese, but she has posted photos of the leaflet! Thank you so much Nccagou! I have searched my house everywhere and can’t find it!
I originally thought I would post another photo of Caveboy because he was truly made with love! However I have another photo I would like to share instead.
When I was younger, before I met Caveman – actually about a year before I met Caveman, I made this cross-stitch sampler. While making it I prayed for the family I longed to have, the husband God had for me and hopefully the children we would have too. I prayed that God would keep my future husband safe, mold him into the man God intended him to be and that He would bring us together – in His time, but also that God would make me the woman my husband needed. I prayed for the children we would have, that we would be the best parents we could be, that we would instruct them in God’s ways and that they would grow up knowing & accepting God’s love, grace, & mercy.
This piece hangs in our foyer but I think I may try to incorporate it into one of the gallery walls I’m creating instead. It is actually behind the door in the foyer and I would like to give it a more prominent place in our home. It truly was made with love, as well as hope, heartache, longing, tears, laughter & joy – all the things that make up a family, my family. I am truly blessed by them and I wouldn’t change a thing about them or how our family came to be, it all happened in God’s perfect timing.
