She opens her mouth with wisdom

and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

Proverbs 31:26

I took my granddaughters to a revolutionary era reenactment encampment and there was a woman

making corn husk dolls with her children. She and her young daughter made dolls for my 

granddaughters. The woman was so kind and gentle. 

Though it is hardly noticeable my granddaughter was born with a cleft lip/cleft palate

and this woman noticed because her son (who was there as well) had born born the same.

They both had surgeries at Boston Children's and she was familiar with my granddaughter's doctor. 

She was just so kind and I couldn't help but think of this verse as she used her own example

to teach her children what kindness is.

Scripture and a snapshot

let's have coffee

grace and truth


  1. What a lovely surprise. And how cool to be able to make those dolls!

  2. The children love those husk dolls. I have seen some carry them around. So nice that they made a couple for your granddaughters. This sounds like a fun event, with some history, learning about how they lived back then.
