A Lamp Unto My Tootsies!



Hello, Dear Ones! I thought I would play a little bit! I love to play and don't you deny it, you do too! ;) I was playing with Charlotte before she went to the other wall to hold the TV set. Bless her heart!


I put together a little Biblical vignette on the wooden top of Charlotte! She was very much wanting to grow spiritually. :)

I added a cloche. We all love cloches, don't we? I poked a green bowl filled with shells under the dome and added a little olden beachy postcard and another shell!! A shell with three drops of water is a symbol of baptism and the three drops of water represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


Then I added Mr. Precious' Gone With the Wind lamp that my Mother gave him many years ago. I thought of the scripture from Psalms ~ "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path" especially sitting here by my Bibles.


I saw this on someone's blog a few years ago ~ books tied up with ribbon and I just loved the look of it. So I took two of my Daddy's Bibles, he's in Heaven now, and my little Bible from when I was a little girl, stacked them up and tied a ribbon around them.


Now I'm rather olden and I can remember many of my little friends having this same little Bible. What a precious colorful cover with Jesus and the little children. It has the most beautiful pictures inside too. Now I carried my little Bible to church for many years as you can tell it was lovingly used. Do any of you remember the Bible Sword Drills where your leader would call out a scripture and you would try to find the scripture first?


If you'll look closely you'll see that I gave Jesus longer eyelashes! I thought everyone looked prettier with longer lashes and I was helping Him out. I'm sure He was laughing His head off when I did this! :) He knows I'm a silly, after all He made me this way.


There! Now you can see the eyelashes! Oh, and it looks like I was making that little child on the right more gorgeous too! :)

Well, now I'm ready to walk down my path that is well lit by God's Word. Oh, and I must not forget to stop and smell the flowers along the way! I pray you're all richly blessed today!!



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you a little Note Song ~

Thy Word is a Lamp Unto My Feet

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.

When I feel afraid,
And think I’ve lost my way.
Still, you’re there right beside me.
Nothing will I fear
As long as you are near;
Please be near me to the end.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.

I will not forget
Your love for me and yet,
My heart forever is wandering.
Jesus by my guide,
And hold me to your side,
And I will love you to the end.

Nothing will I fear
As long as you are near;
Please be near me to the end.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
And a light unto my path.
You’re the light unto my path.
