“If your heart is broken, you’ll find GOD right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.”Psalm 34:18 MSG
I didn’t notice the subtle shift. My head and my heart seemed to be settling down. There was finally a place to catch my breath. As I reflect on the days behind, I see that they each held a small treasure: a good book; a simple hat on the needles; a wonderful evening of stories about community and knitting; a sweet time introducing our tiny person to his great grampa; the quiet, loving presence of my husband and daughters.
This morning I remembered this simple wall quilt and I know that later today, I will pull out a piece of linen and begin stitching something new.
I also signed up for Bonnie’s Patron page. I learned about her stitch journal from Kat. A daily stitching project is not on my list for 2017 but I do love embroidery and would love to do something monthly perhaps. I guess I have a few more weeks to make some plans.
I had hoped to get a quilt pin basted this week, and that might still happen this weekend. There was the sinus infection, more trips to the doctor with dad, and finally moving him back to rehab for another round of therapy. We have some encouraging news from the doctors yesterday so I am hanging on to optimism and finding much to treasure every day.
Thanks to Jessica for the idea of sharing a one little word scripture on Sunday mornings
