Mystery Tree…

PM1910

PM1910 (postmarked 1910)

Today over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook I’m sharing our Mystery Tree Tradition that we have embraced the last several years.

This antique postcard is a favorite one that we have from Dear’s Great great Aunt Emma. We still have snow on the ground but it has melted off the streets.

This afternoon we will celebrate the life of a friend who died suddenly a week ago Friday. He was only 69. We will see many old friends from our former church. I hope to hug his wife who was a faithful Sunday School teacher to our boys and several others and cherish the reunions. We are again thankful for the Hope we have in Jesus and the Hope Mick had in Jesus, our Redeemer.

I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.

  • Refrain:
    But “I know Whom I have believed,
    And am persuaded that He is able
    To keep that which I’ve committed
    Unto Him against that day.”

Cherish those God has put in your life today. Don’t put off giving words of affirmation to those around you. Choose joy!

  1. I enjoyed reading about your Mystery Tree. So sorry that you are saying goodbye to, what feels like to me, a lot of friends. Does it seem that way to you, too? Perhaps it is because you have a wide circle of friends. It is good to provide the support that comes from dear friends who pray.

    • Yes, Vee, we have had several this past 12 months. Today we had the chance to hug so many friends that we would not have had the chance to see without us all getting together to remember our friend.
