I must have the worst of luck. I love my new sewing machine and I made a pillowcase So far with the help of my friend Renée. But as I was ready to sew another project, the footpedal stopped working! It would go on and off sporadically. Finally it just would not go on. The power cord to the sewing machine and the footpedal are combined so I know it’s not the power because the light still goes on. The cord is fine too. So I called Singer and they are going to replace it. I hope the new one comes quickly because I really want to sew.
My dad decided to get me this awesome present for an early Christmas present. What is it? Well, it is used by many daily, and no one would have clothes without it. It’s a sewing machine!
I’m so excited to learn to sew! It took me over a half hour to figure out how to use the automatic threader and how to use the bobbin.
I want to make veils and smocks and jumpers! I’m so happy. 😃😍🤗
If anyone sews, show off your fav project or pattern!
I’m on Facebook a lot. I mostly use it to communicate with likeminded Christians all over the country. I love to read how different people walk with the Lord. Some go to a near empty church to pray. Some walk through a meadow or sit on a park bench to talk to God. I like to stay up late reading the Word, and taking notes. However we pray we must make sure that we are sincere. And that we are right with God. If not, REPENT! God forgives us for our sins if we just go to Him. But we must remember that time is running short. Soon He won’t be the Forgiver but the Judge. So please perfect your walk with God, pray, and have faith.
I have learned from the Anabaptists about living simply. Their houses are not cluttered, they dressed neatly, and most importantly, have a simple faith. If your life is not so full of waste, you won’t share your waste with others. If you simply have a job, you can simply help someone in need, be it monetarily or just having time to spend with someone in need. The Anabaptist faith in Christ is awe inspiring. They know the truth of salvation and don’t have to turn it into a big complicated ordeal. First, you have to believe that Jesus is the Son of God. Then you must repent of your sins and cry out to Him. You must forsake your sins and promise to not do them again. Then you must be a follower of Christ and strive to be like Him and obey scripture. That’s all. If I’m missing something let me know.
Winter is halfway over. I’m relieved. Although tomorrow is the biggest snowstorm this season. There is this homeless woman I know. Please pray for her. Her name is Lynn. She sleeps in a doorway to shield herself from the cold.
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.”
Matthew 25:40-43 KJV
Winter is the time of stillness and reflection. The snow mutes everything.
Everything is silent.
Of course there are the Christmas parties and lights and decorations for Christmas. But beyond that what is the real importance? How do you reflect on this time of Jesus’s birth? Do you pray in the stillness? Do you admire a snowflake and see God’s beauty in it? What do you do. It’s hard to admit that the season gets me down a bit. The lessening of the sun, The coldness that comes, the view of homeless people in the cold. The people who don’t even know who Jesus is and have no idea about the greatest gift he gave to us, himself. I think of the people whose family lives far away. It can be hard for many people. But as Christians we are to lift up our voices in prayer for these people. Pray for the homeless, pray for the jobless, pray for the ones whose family are far away. Come together as the body of Christ to pray life into those people. It is a long winter. Keep praying. And Merry Christmas.
I guess you are wondering where I have been. I’d love to say I was somewhere exotic or exciting. That the reason of my absence was justified. But honestly I just don’t know what to write anymore. Don’t get me wrong I have dozens of ideas, but most (like my health) have no place on a Christ centered blog. So what’s a gal to do?
