abraham and sarah

So of course this story is dear to *my* heart........God's promise to give Sarah and Abraham a son came to pass (despite their age). But this promise only happened when Sarah gave her desire over to God and His timing.

She gave birth to a little boy and named him Isaac which means "laughter" because having a baby at her old age was pretty funny if you think about it.

For the ornament, I tried to made a cradle and couldn't pull it off......so a quick trip to Michaels fixed that. I found this cute little scrapbook doohickey and couldn't resist. Pretty sure they didn't have onsies back then, but we can use our imagination.

"God has brought me laughter! All who hear about this will laugh with me" ~Genesis 21:6
