As I am now without any woodworking tools, other than a handsaw and a few carving tools, I made this by hand for my angel of a wife for our first anniversary. It is undeniably a humble piece, however, I’ve learned in the last few years that humility is an invaluable gift given only by the grace of God. It’s interesting how I thought I needed certain things; tools, money and even cable to make me content, when in fact, after being forced to sell all my material goods to pay for recovery from an all-consuming disease, I quickly found that all those material goods were in fact the least important things in my life. What is important, what is righteous, what is true and unconditional, is the love of a committed wife, the support of a wonderful family, and, perhaps most importantly, time on this Earth to simply enjoy life with those I love.
