a little gift idea

by Shawni

There is something about wooden spoons that gets to me.

I guess any kind of beautiful wooden utensils. They are just so beautiful. (I collect wooden salad tongs if I can find them from any random place I go, and Claire and Elle have both brought me home some favorites from trips that I adore.)

Anyway, having said that, when I saw these beautiful olive wood spoons at Trader Joe’s last year I fell in love with them and gave them to a few friends for Christmas.

Such a beautiful symbol of Christ after all that olive wood I saw when I studied His life in Jerusalem with olive wood on every corner.

Such a beautiful symbol of service as they are used to serve those you love. (And sometimes those you might be trying to love;)

So as a presidency in the Relief Society we decided to give them to the women in our church congregation for Christmas this year.

Just thought I would share.

Happy weekend!
