Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

My Favorite Verse

When something speaks to you in a way you haven't been spoken to in a while, your heart takes notice, and it listens, because it simply cannot not listen.

For me, that something was this Sunday post by Julie at Joy's Hope.

While I enjoy all of Julie's Sunday posts, this one spoke to me and I found myself back at her blog reading it again and again and again. And then I realized, I was reading it again and again and again because it was waiting for me to recognize that I wanted to share it. With you. With everyone.

So here it is.

Wow. Awesome. Powerful. Humbling.

My favorite verse.

    Thanks. :)

    Have a wonderful Wednesday.
