This flame is for you, Margy.
My sister, Margy, is only 14 months younger than I, so we have been close all of our lives, not that we really loved each other until we began living our own lives outside of our immediate family. We were raised almost as twins because we were the same size and assumed the same roles as darlings of the family, which, of course, neither of us could live up to.
Now she works out of her home as a nurse-consultant for an insurance group and is married to a fine fellow, a retired parole and probabtion officer, who longs to move nearer his brothers.
Margy and Mike have made an offer on a place in Central Oregon, but haven't sold their own home as yet.
This candle is a reminder for me all weekend long to pray for them and whatever the LORD has in mind for them. We hope for the sale of their drop-dead gorgeous piece of property which views Mount St. Helens, has a huge, well-appointed shop for Mike and a lovely 4-bedroom home for them and their three little white fluff-ball dogs.
So, I've place a large candle out here in my studio where I am in and out all day long. It will remain lit this weekend to remind me to pray for them. The cloth on which it sits is a beautiful embroidered and appliqued treasure Margy brought to me from her travels in Italy.
I treasure her so very much and would love to see her and her husband sell!
and please join me this weekend in prayer for their sale.
