Wanted to share something for a moment then I’ll get back to working on your crosses. :) I made about 20 of these benches for a beach wedding 5 years ago for only cost and was hoping to rent them out later to make the money back… Well that didn’t happen no matter how much I advertised it. I then tried to sell them for as little as 50 dollars and even tried to give them away! They have sat here for 5 years.
After the Tree of Life cross orders starting coming in I called my local cypress lumber mill and they don’t have any of the boards I use! Due to our wet spring and no access to the areas where they grow they haven’t harvested any and their supply is low.
I turned and looked at the benches and kinda giggled. Then I realized the Lord didn’t allow these to leave this shop because today I’m taking off the tops to use to make the Tree of Life crosses! That was his doing! He had a plan I didn’t know about apparently for these crosses 5 years ago. Just wanted to share that. :)
Wonder what he has in mind for the bases of them now?! Lol! Have a blessed day everyone!
P.S. Just saw this verse:
For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
