This week I decided to lengthen the sheers on the porch by taking the wide hem out and having a small hem. this worked fine (lots of work)~grin~ I then decided to add more sheers as I wanted a fuller look, These sheers are some I had bought several months back, not realizing I had bought the wrong size. I took the wide hem out of number one and something inside said "you need to hem it and put it up with the older panels, before finishing the others," but I opted not to do this. I finished all of panels, went to bed, and planned to hang them with the older panels, the next morning.... feeling very proud of my project.~smile~
I said to myself, "I bet they put the wrong size when they packaged them.".... Isn't that just like us, wanting to play the blame game? I measured them over and over again and don't know why I kept measuring, I guess I thought the length would grow. ~smile~
I could either pack them away(cover my mistake), and hope for the best, but I decided to face my mistake and leave them up. After I tied them, I looked at the end results, and thought, "Hey this is not bad at all, I will finish hanging them and enjoy seeing how much pleasure they will give me"......
He now steps back and sees that He took something that we thought was hopeless,and He made something beautiful of our life,... only He could do this.
Romans 8:37-39~Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The longer I live, the more I am aware of God's love for me, just think" Nothing", will ever separate you and I from the love of God! This is so humbling to me.
