divermike Posted November 26, 2009 Share Posted November 26, 2009 I had a chance to do some forging for a friend yesterday, he was renewing his vows of marraige, I only had a couple hours, so I went out to the forge and found a couple rusty pieces of 1/4" rod, and shaped them into heart hooks as a gift to him and his bride. As I was doing it, as is my habit, I was talking to God, and over time a thought came to me, this is how God works, Take a couple pieces of cast off material (us in our flesh) and through refining fires, make us into something he desires. It was another defining moment for me in my shop. It led me to put a twist into the ends, to represent the 3 corded strand, (not easily broken) and shape the vertical portion into a heart, indicating the love our God has for us. I gave them to my friends at the ceremony last night, and forgot to take pics, I have asked him to take a pic for me, they are nothing fancy, but when I explained these thoughts to him, you could see the tears gathering in his eyes, he got the message. On this scheduled day of thanksgiving, I am in awe of our creator, and how he takes time to explain himself to an idiot like me. God Bless.
