Recently we became godparents to a precious baby girl! It was truly a joyous occasion. Her grandmother wanted to give us a gift. I responded with “being asked to be her godparents is the true gift.” And it truly was!!! After everyone had left the reception, the grandmother gave us this…
This icon of the Virgin Mary and Christ has an amazing story!!! It was given to the grandmother in Romania when they took their own daughter to be baptized. A gift given from Father John, their priest in Romania, was now bestowed to our family! WOW! I cried with astonishment! I new this cherished keepsake would have a special place in our home. There is little to none wall space left! Prior to the wedding shower we hosted on Sunday, I placed the icon on the entry table, and I love it there!
And I have thoroughly enjoyed its presence as I sit on the sofa in the mornings having my coffee! It is truly an honor being asked to be godparents, and this precious gift will forever be a fond reminder of that special day!
Enjoy the day!
