37 Nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37

Let me be the first to admit, I had doubts!  Nagging, defeating and at times crippling doubt.  I opened my mouth and announced that our spin-off of Emily’s Hats for Hope Initiative  was going to complete 200 items by December!  Initially the “we” was just me, but fueled by a sincere desire to help, my needles have been humming, through illness, storms, weekends and every seemingly waking moment that I was not working or driving.

There were moments when I started to feel like the Dunkin Donuts man in the old 70’s commercials, except instead of “I need to make the donuts”, my mantra was “I need to knit the (insert hat, cowl or scarf here).”  Time was getting closer and closer,  I prayed and begged God to please send help, things just were not moving fast enough under my needles alone.

The testimony of God’s answering even the smallest prayer was manifest  first by the dawning  of interest and then by the desire of angels to help!  The trickle became a stream one hat became 40 (I realized I might need to learn to crochet), boredom for a University student morphed into hats and scarves cranked out overnight and delivered with smiles the next morning.  My empty mailbox received boxes as God blessed others to bless us with yarn at just the moment we were about to exhaust the supply.

Humbled and grateful I was able to bear witness to an ever-growing  pile of knitted, loomed and crocheted items.   These items are now bagged and ready to go home with University students who are excited about being able to  distribute them in their communities and to make a difference at home!   Please pray with us as  pray over the next number!!

There is nothing too hard for God!  He truly allows us to be stretched when we have doubts He calms them and allows His will to shine through!  Continue to pull and shape me, Lord!

Making His praise glorious!

Schematic of stockinette stitch, the most basi...



10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)

With the holidays safely in my rear view mirror I uttered a sigh of relief. For months I knitted, hats, scarves and shawls each piece, while carefully honing my newly minted knitting skills. Finding just the right pattern and in my mind seeing the smile on the faces of the recipients.  Each piece stitch prayerfully knit for the receiver, prayers of piece and covering. For couples prayers of connections done in matching color schemes. I know cheesy but when creating in love cheesy does not enter the equation.  I smiled as I created thinking about how Noah ushered two of every species into the ark there I was doing hats and scarves quirky sets, meant to wrap the wearers in something just for them.  

Our Father, God has provided everyone special gifts of their own.    Most of these gifts are to be shared with others in any number of ways.  The most important gift to all of was Christ and I certainly want to share Him with as many people as I can!

Making His praise glorious!
