I have been pre-occupied with some things in my life lately so blogging has been on the back burner. Thought I would share with you another one of my treasures. This is a cigar purse that was made by my Mentor from church. She has made several and I have coveted every one of them! For my birthday she gave me this one. I used it for a while but then I became afraid of messing it up...so I keep it on one of my end tables in my living room now. I really love the purse but I love the one who gave it to me much more! We really developed a wonderful relationship. I do not get to see her now as often as I would like. My schedule has prevented it but we get to talk from time to time and I am thankful for that. Even though the box was a holder for something I detest....its transformation into a purse is now a witness to me of a godly woman who was willing to give up time with her family to become my spiritual mentor. It is also a reminder of how God can take a persons messed up life no matter how ugly and hopeless and turn it into something beautiful and of worth!

That's really sweet. I have a mentor at my church. She is so kind to me to take time when I need spiritual guidance as she is sooo busy in her life. It is wonderful when sisters can encourage one another and mentor one another :o)
