Gifts, Tarheel Forge
Since being old, I seldom receive presents. I have the last present here on my desk. A stamp holder that came from a blogger Myra along with a good book. To be honest I do not need anything and enjoy giving rather than getting. BUT today in the mail I received such a unique gift I wanted to share it.
Nephew Joe Darnell told me a day or so ago via message he was into another business, he was forging. Now that is scary I said. I know folks who spent a lot of time in jail for such a thing. I was thinking, not a bad business I guess, but the side effects can be tough.
Of course to drop back many years, the blacksmith was known to labor over a forge. Joe is good with metal, as a matter of fact his dad, Brother Junior, was good with metal and mechanics.
Anyway the business is ‘TARHEEL FORGE’, Joe Darnell proprietor. He sent us this simple beautiful cross, forged from two nails, similar to the nails the Lord Suffered at His crucifiction, how poetic is that? He also forged the nails.
Thanks Joe, What a treasure. It is beautiful and very impressive in simplicity and meaning.
