Footprints in the Sand, Message in a Bottle Necklace
My handmade Footprints in the Sand, Message in a Bottle Necklace is so sweet, so inspiring. I love the "Footprints in the Sand" Poem (artist unknown), it has always given me comfort.
Footprints in the Sand:
One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you
I printed the Poem as small as I could on a piece of paper and rolled it into a little scroll, then placed it inside the little glass bottle, with some sand (washed) and a little shell. I pushed the cork in tight, but, I did not glue it, so that it can be removed in a time of need. I thought it would be really nice to be able to remove the cork an pull out the poem and read.
I wire wrapped the neck of the bottle with antiqued bronze color wire attached to an antiqued brass rolo style chain.
I dangled a Heart pendant on one side of the bottle that says "Made with Love" (12mm long) and a pendant with two little Feet (15mm long) dangling on the other side.
The necklace is 31" long so that you can see it when wearing it, just perfect to inspire and comfort. Perfect Friendship gift, Anniversary gift, Birthday gift, gift for someone who loves the beach and Beach Jewelry.
This is a wonderful gift for a Christian, someone who loves Christian Jewelry, someone who needs to be reminded of Gods love.
The necklace will be placed inside a white organza jewellery pouch and put inside the gift box with Poem placed inside.
I love making jewellery, it’s a gift, so I make all my jewellery with prayers and blessings for a Long, Happy, Healthy, Peaceful & Prosperous Life!
