This is what she wanted : "A bible as the main piece and 4 men mentioned in the bible that have the number 40 associated with them:
- moses : the man who lived 40 years in Egypt and 40 years in the dessert. And he spent 40 days and nights at Mount Sinai & the 1st 3 kings of Israel:
Saul, David and Solomon each rule the kingdom for 40 years.
She considered the first 40 years of her hubby's life, going thru trials and tests which she drew reference to our Lord Jesus who was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights by Satan. May God bless him & bring him to a higher level in his life so that he could go forth to bless others. Like the need to be spiritually filled like Mary who sat at the foot of Jesus and listen to Him before we can be like Martha, serving the people around her."
They took me many hours to mould but thank God who enabled me to make them despite the nagging pain that kept bothering me on my left shoulder blade, and I can even finished decorating another cake (almost...) for Mike's Altar Ministry member's b'day celebration for tmr.
