This is one of the items I will have at the craft bazaar I am participating in. The card was inspired by WAXYO WAXYO'S CARD
The inside reads: The Towel
At first glance, one looks at a kitchen towel and thinks “Wow, a towel. I needed a new one”, or “Wow, a towel, the old ones are getting stained and worn”.
But have we ever stopped to think that for years, even thousands of years, the towel has not just been used in the kitchen, but for a variety of purposes?
Take for example the mother who wipes the tears of a little child to soothe the physical and emotional hurt; the physician who binds the wounds of a bleeding patient; the woman in her home wiping her hands as she moves from task to task; the weary traveler who wipes his sweated brow. Some other examples would be the manager of a boxer who “throws in the towel”, to save the life of his protégé or the young man wiping the grease off his hands as he fixes the old jalopy.
Notwithstanding all of the above examples, perhaps the most significant use of the towel was about two thousand years ago when our loving brother took an ordinary towel in His hands and dried the feet of his disciples only hours before His crucifixion. Sure the towel is a handy item with a myriad of uses, but it also has deep symbolic mean¬ing when seen in the hands of the Savior doing a work of kindness for His fellow men.
So take this towel, knowing it is given with love, and do works of goodness with it, as the Savior worked goodness with His so many years ago.
