"Trusts God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
He's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give Him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline;
don't sulk under His loving correction.
It's the child He loves that God corrects;
a father's delight is behind all this."

Proverbs 3:5-12    The Message

Pineapple Welcome


Annie holds a heart ornament stitched with
"Welcome" and a pineapple
which is a symbol of hospitality
~
In colonial America, hostesses would set a 
pineapple in the middle of their tables 
when guests came over. 
The pineapple symbolized the warmest welcome 
a hostess could extend to her guests,
and then it was served as the dessert.

Annie is 18 inches tall
and will be up on eBay 
May 11

Thank you for visiting
