Oh dear! My Newsgator account is filled to overflowing with so many new blog entries that are waiting for me to read. Little by little that number in My Feeds will be knocked down, but it takes so long. As I've been reading, Nancy Wilson's entry Wise-Hearted Crafting at Femina
touched my heart as to the deep need we have to stitch and create beautiful things for ourselves, families, and friends.
Connie brought cross-stitching to me when our firstborn girls were just babies. Embroidery had always been an interest for me, but now it filled a need. Not only was it an enjoyable past time, but this was work I could do that did not have to be redone the next day. Yesterday's accomplishments in stitching were built upon the next day, until one day the project was finished.
Mrs. Wilson ties thoughts such as these all together in a beautiful cohesive bow, finding reasons for why we need to create beauty in God's word. I think you'll find it a very thought-provoking, uplifting article.
My favorite quote: "My theory is that God puts wisdom in our hearts and it comes out our hands. And when it does, we make stuff!"
