Blessing Mini-book

I like to make these little books just to give away - this one has found a home, but I have this idea of making one and wrapping it so pretty and just leaving it in some random city place to bless someone.

"The Lord bless you
    and keep you;


"the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;

the Lord turn His face toward you

    and give you peace.

I'm still a little insecure about how my homemade gifts are received.  I attempted some gifts as a child that didn't go over well, and the memory still lingers.

But I love unexpected, undeserved, unearned gifts -  I love giving them and I love getting them.  A book like this takes me a couple of days, maybe six hours total to pull all together, fussy cut, arrange, add inks and spray inks, and I feel like, whatever the outcome, I am adding a bit of myself, my personal heart into the mix.  So I want the receiver to like it.  I want them to smile.

It's a little bit of a risk, giving a bit of your heart when you don't know how it will be received. Being a Christian, there is a message in this about Jesus- but I don't want to get preachy in this space.  If  you're curious about the gift Jesus gives that is undeserved or unearned or need prayer, or anything - feel free to ask me at I love to chat about the greatest gift I've ever been given.

Have you made something and just left it as a gift for someone to find?

Have you  been insecure about a gift you created?  How was it received?

I'd love to hear your story.

Be Blessed
