Sarah included a couple Bible verses that she had been thinking of. This one really hit home for me:
Luke 12:48: Much will be required of everyone who has been given much. And even more will be expected of the one who has been entrusted with more.
I have been given so much. This was a chance for me to give back.
I threw the blocks on my design floor and started treadling my heart out. I only mention the treadle, because I was so into sewing this up that I forgot to switch to electric (and have some hip pain to prove it!)
I wasn't able to sew all the blocks into rows before bed....It was hard to leave because I knew the layout was in great peril due to its location amidst the traffic flow. Thankfully, it survived the kids (even when they started a game of jumping over it).
Our sewing group met tonight and I was able to finish sewing the rows together just before Sarah left. She's going to quilt it on her longarm. Phew! It feels good to finish a top faster than my usual turtle pace.
God is good. This ministry gives my passion a purpose!
May the work of my hands and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to You, O Lord.
