I am thrilled to be done with my sewing project. What was four and a half yards of white fabric three weeks ago is now a full length minister’s robe complete with lace at the sleeves and hem. As with anything we create, it wasn’t always easy to put it together. But I worked with it and coaxed it and re-worked it until I have what I like. I forgave it its tendencies to pull and drape in ways I didn’t want, and finished it this morning with great joy. I now have a new garment I am happy with and will be proud to wear.
Imagine God’s joy in creating, forgiving, and finding pride in us!
