(Super duper busy these past few days...so I'll be catching up Days 21 through 23 this morning!)
On this day, I'm grateful for my little sewing machine. And I guess not so much just for the machine itself, but for the ability to use it. Though not a pro by any means, I find that the more projects I complete, the more confidence I gain in my abilities. Plus, it's my "release." Generally when I find time to sew, it's when my kids are asleep or I have a few hours to myself and can crank something out. That quiet time is precious and much-needed.
It is amazing to me how plain ole fabric right off the bolt can be transformed into something practical and useful...and sometimes even cute! No matter how much stitching I do, this plain and simple fact gets me every time.
Can't help but think how God works the same way. He takes plain old me -- right off the bolt -- and cuts and trims and stitches to refine me into something practical and useful for His kingdom. Except that the process takes a bit longer with me as compared to a few hours with a bit of fabric and a sewing machine.
