"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

Last night, I attended a quilter's guild show and demonstration.  I was really excited about going.  When my teenagers were toddlers, I was taught the basics of machine piecing.  I enjoyed it but it was not something I had a lot of time for.  Going to the show last night really made me want to come home and get started on a project.

One thing that caught my attention was the Yo-Yo maker.  I have always loved the look of the Yo-Yo quilts but thought the process was too tedious.  Watching the lady use the Yo-Yo maker sparked my interest.  I may look for one while I am out today.

As I stood and stared at a few of the quilts it made me think about how they are similar to life.  I thought about how you can have imperfections, flaws, and even mistakes yet still be beautiful in God's eyes.  I thought about how it takes so many different experiences in our lives to come together to make us what we are.  I am glad that when God looks at me, he sees a masterpiece even if I focus on the small imperfections and flaws.  I am grateful that my life is full of various experiences which make who I am.  Quilts are never perfect.  Each quilter picks the many different pieces of material, thread, and pattern.  Each quilt is unique and useful.  We are the same way.  We are not all meant to be just alike.  God can use each of even thought we are different from each other.
As I start my project, I will try to keep in mind that, like that quilt I will make, I am not perfect but I am treasured by God.

When life throws you scraps, make a quilt.  ~Author Unknown
