Months & months ago... dare I admit it was
probably over a year ago that I started cutting
old pairs of jeans into squares.
First, large squares.
Then I sewed them into rows & attached
the rows into a quilt front.
Then proceeded to line it and put a soft
flannel backing on it with an opening
at the bottom... and.. all
those squares became a Duvet cover!
I proudly stuffed in a used comforter that once
belonged to my daughters and presented it my
oldest son. He was thrilled.
I quickly promised my younger son the same
warm, lovingly crafted "quilt" before the
winter time came.
opps... it came & went! (I'm not complaining!)
TODAY is FINALLY happened.
All those smaller squares I'd cut out of old jeans
from Chilly, our girls and even a few friends
(thanks, Zach & Adam)
have FINALLY become a duvet cover for our
littlest little man!
Things that last are worth sticking with.
(yes, I ended that sentence with a preposition)
Things that really mean something to us
are worth continuing!
You may need some inspiration to finish a
meaningful but undone project...
We all need to be reminded that we run a race
that has eternal worth & lasting value...
so be encouraged!
Someday we will Finish!
Heb. 12:1 "Do you see what this means -
all these pioneers who blazed the way,
all these veterans cheering us on?
It means we'd better get on with it.
Strip down, start running - and never quit!
No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins."
