You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Good morning everybody. I can't wait to tell you about the beautiful award that was delivered yesterday by UPS. Most of you participated in the Miracle Makeover for Charlie a few weeks ago. Spiritual Sundays was blessed to be chosen by Design Gives Back to participate in that amazing campaign. This was the second year Spiritual Sundays was involved in the Miracle Makeover. This year for Charlie, last year for Colette. The beautiful crystal angel was a gift from Kelee Katillac last year. Thank you so much, Kelee, for both of these beautiful awards and for the privilege of being a part of your Miracle Makeovers.

It is difficult to photograph crystal. Here is another shot so you can read what is inscribed.

I want to again thank all of you who shared and commented the week of the Miracle Makeover. Without you and others like you, it would not have been possible. If you are not familiar with Design Gives Back, I hope you will check it out. It is truly inspiring. Here is the link:

I love crystal. Did you notice the crystal bell? We went to a memorial service a couple of weeks ago for a lovely lady who was  member of our former church. She had a large bell collection and each person at the service received one of her bells. At the end of the service all the bells were ringing, and then we were told we could keep them. I think this was so nice. She had all kinds of bells from all over the world. I chose the crystal one. Now when I see/ring this little bell, I think of Sammie.

Now, let's start linking for a new weekend of sharing.

  1. Wow, that was neat at the memorial service that each got a bell; I like that!

    enjoy the weekend!


  2. What precious gifts for Spiritual Sunday's participation and the bells being rung and then given away after the memorial service? Wow...Wonderful!

  3. My 91-year-old mother-in-law has a bell collection. I wonder how the rest of the family would feel about doing this "someday" when the time comes. Personally, I LOVE the idea!

  4. What an awesome story ....a little of her in each bell given as a memorial

  5. Wonderful! Happy Spiritual Sunday weekend.

    Today at SandwichINK, I'm joining in with Blog Action Day on the topic of food. I chose Bread - as I have friends and family who are unable to eat bread due to various food allergies and intolerance symptoms. Praise God for JESUS Who is truly the BREAD OF LIFE. :)

    Have a blessed Spiritual Sunday!

  14. Good morning, Charlotte.

    It was so kind of Kelee to acknowledge all of the wonderful support for Charlie's Miracle Makeover this year, and it looks so nice displayed with the angel for Colette.

    I can imagine the sound of all of those bells ringing for Sammie. What an amazing tribute.

    Thank you for Spiritual Sunday.

  15. What a nice thing to do! Love the bell story.

  16. Dear Charlotte, Whether a bell to ring, a song to sing, a joyful smile, a kindly word, it would be awesome if we each left behind many traces of making the world a little brighter for everyone whose path we crossed. May you have a blessed week! Laurie
