Last night a hat on my needles for two days was completed and immediately another cast on. Hours later laying it down with yawns I retired to bed.
The morning dawned, slowly and sluggishly, the missing hour definitely being felt, yet creating was on my mind. Making things out of string is a three-year gift and ministry. Looking at the blessings of yarn in my little stash I envision warmth, hope, love and smiles.
Genesis 1:3 says “God said”, no idea what tone used when He said what He said but He spoke and things came into being. He called for the light where mere seconds prior, there was darkness. I am in awe of the magnificent experience of creation. Each part of creation was spoken into being, except man. Man was incredibly important to God, so important that He knelt down and sculpted him, shaped him by hand in His own image and then blew life into him. Because He is God, all of creation is fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139.14 says it best “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
When finishing a hat or shawl my eye can pick apart every detail, seeing a dropped stitch or some other mistake that I cannot figure out, but it was made in love. This love has taken me out of my comfort zone and taught me to rely totally upon God. Yes, there may be a error in a hat or cowl, but it is a testament to being an imperfect being loved and led by a perfect God!
Making His praise glorious!
