Philippians 1:29. Gift a Day: Day 2, Gift 2 + Hanger for a Mini Quilt
Paul was force to
submit to prison and eventually martyrdom.
The Philippians suffered prison as well.
Christ was a given.
Suffering for our
beliefs is nothing new. It’s part of the
I can’t really
say I have suffered for my Christian beliefs.
I have been challenged by non-believers – good friends, beloved family
members, and acquaintances - as to why I serve a God who would allow such pain
in my life. That hurt, but I wouldn’t
call it suffering.
A new acquaintance,
who is a non-believer, said she doesn’t believe that “God will not send us more
than we can handle.” I simply responded with a hug and said, “I hear you.” I don’t know her life story. I don’t know her pain, but I heard it in that
I couldn’t agree
with her, but neither could I share my point of view. It wasn’t the right timing.
Simply saying, “I
hear you,” hopefully let her know that I truly heard her pain and confusion –
and I care. And sometimes, that’s all people
need: validation of their feelings as
well as knowing their listener cares without judgement.
Any more will
come in God’s timing.
LORD, this is a
hard verse. Oh, how I love to read Your
promises, Your encouragement and of Your love for me. But there is a price to serving you. Let me serve You willingly and wisely, I
Father, please be
with those who are truly suffering for their belief in You! Encourage and strengthen them. And Father, if it be Your will, stop their
suffering and give them victory upon victory!
Amen! Dear Friend, this is my truth!
Day 2, Gift 2
husband told me there are several people in his office that are cold – really cold. If you recall, I made these hand warmers:
he asked me if I would give him a few to take to work. Of course I would!
made these gift bags so he could take them in style!
the link to the tutorial I used from Amy at Positively Splendid!
Hanger for a Mini
I didn’t make my OMG, I did finish it this morning - label and all!
My daughter did the quilting on the border and under the letters. Also, do you see her quilting on the tree trunk and the Nativity?
I added hand stitched beading
to the string of popcorn!
reason for the delay was I wanted to make a way to hang the mini quilt. I did and it came out great!
was the tutorial I used from Jayne at Twiggy and Opal!
also plan to make a bag to hold the Advent Tree Decorations today.
the last week’s finishes my UFO completion percentages are up to 37%! Yea!
don’t plan to add new projects to my categories until these are finished!
I am working on a plan for 2017 – which is even more motivation to complete my
