knitting

I have no craft sense, whatsoever, anywhere in me.  I can’t cross-stitch, crochet, color, knit, draw, paint, sculpt, tie dye, . . . . . .  and I can barely sew on a button & do a hem.  I’m not crafty & visiting Hobby Lobby makes me twitch with nervous ticks.

Despite all these deficiencies, I am nonetheless, a result of Divine knitting and weaving as it says in Ps 139:13.  This is important for each of us to ingest for lots of reasons:

  • when we try to look / act like someone else, this is inherently destructive to the unique & divine design given to each one of us
  • your knitting / weaving together that God has done with you is perhaps one of God’s greatest expressions of love to you – you’re not a clone nor automaton
  • don’t unravel or unweave the beauty of who you are by running yourself down – remember that the enemy of your soul is also called the accuser of the brethren, so be mindful of who you agree with about your life 🙂
  • your divine DNA is organized for unique purposes, expressions, celebrations and successes

Whether you’re the knitting type or not, you are wonderfully, fearfully & lovingly made in the image of your Creator 🙂

Flying Cows

  
My daughter tells me that my Birkenstock sandals are back in style, to which I replied, “Never knew they went out of style.” The bigger question for me is that whole style & fashion topic, which feels like jumping in a swimming pool filled with boomslangs, vipers, piranhas, man of war jellyfish & a host of other deadly & creepy creatures. If I started to have any robust conversations about fashion & style, you’d be assured that it’s sanitarium time for me. 
On the flip side, I have friends who are fashion / style divas & I think they’re awesome. Here’s why: everyone is fearfully & wonderfully made, unique in perspective & divinely crafted for their existence. Trying to make someone into who they’re not is offensive on human levels & insulting to our Divine Author. 

Let’s live in the identity that God has given us & cheer for others who are walking out their divine DNA. Humans clone but God creates – maybe even a few shockers like flying cows & socks with Birkenstocks ,)

Rustle Bustle

Seems like we all juggle lots of things: kids schedules with sports, practices, dr appointments, work responsibilities, relationship stuff, . . . the hustle, bustle & rustle of everyday living.
In all of these things, let’s be mindful to nurture in our hearts our relationship with Jesus. Lots of things want your attention so we must daily chose to fellowship with Jesus beyond the quickie “help!!!” requests. While these are important & good, our hearts are designed for deep fellowship with Jesus so lets yield to our design & align our values, focus & time to nurture the deeps with Jesus!
