What A Colorful Bunch!

Meet the inhabitants of Tiny Town Theater. They have lead a useful and productive life with me in the past as we entertained many company functions, church groups, and a variety of banquets. But that was in the good old days.

For years now, they have all sat quietly stored away. And that is a shame. Everybody and everything needs a purpose. And by fate, it all fell into place for these character puppets who have brought so much joy.

I was cleaning the basement when I came upon their box and immediately thought of my sister. She is very involved with the youth at her church and I thought there might be a need.

Well within two hours of that initial thought, my sister called me and asked me if I still had those puppets. God works that way sometimes.

So the plan for all my fabric friends is for them to hop a plane to Honduras to take part in a youth ministry program there. They are ready to serve their new purpose and to have exciting adventures in a different country.

Gee...I hope they write me once in awhile.
Okay, I need no comments on that statement.

That is what I call a God Wink. The ripple effect of what you have done - will just keep on going - sandie

Oh I love when that happens! A God wink. Does you sister live in Honduras? Are there other things they need?

P.S. I don't know if you've ever heard of the book series "When God Winks" by Squire Rushnell. I think I may have one of them still. If you like I can send it to you.

Isn't it reassuring when you see God working in your life, no matter how small or big.

First time to your site and I've joined.
