Its Friday, A Sewing Day!!
This is my first quilt block in the quilt I am making. I have the other blocks cut out
so today is the day to work on the other blocks. R. came home last night and all of my weird
malady's have gone. It is so weird, I even slept for the first time in 4 nights. Such a wimp!!
I had something I wanted to share, I have looked for this devotional for a long time and today I found it. I guess I was thinking about it because of the sewing needles it talks about.
"I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument." Isa. 41:15
"A bar of steel worth five dollars, when wrought into horseshoes, is worth ten dollars. If made into needles it is worth three hundred and fifty dollars, if into penknife blades, it is worth thirty-two thousand dollars, if into springs for watches it is worth two hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
What a drilling the poor bar must undergo to be worth this! But the more it is manipulated, the more it is hammered, and passed through the fire, beaten and pounded and polished, the greater the value.
May this parable help us to be silent, still, and long-suffering. Those who suffer most are capable of yielding most; and it is through pain that God is getting the most out of us, for His glory and the blessing of others." ( Streams in the Desert volume 1)
There is a purpose after all to this life, to shine so men will glorify our Father in heaven.
