Well, it has finally happened... Rebecca has got me hooked on knitting socks!!! I took part of my Christmas money (thanks Mom and Dad!) and bought some yarn and needles, and last night I began my first sock! Right now I am on the easy part...that will change soon and I am sure that I will be calling Rebecca for some much needed help. But I gotta tell you... watching this yarn begin to make it's pattern is really amazing. In the skein it looks like a bunch of colors just randomly spaced, but when it begins to be used, the pattern starts to appear, and it is just awesome to watch.
So that got me to thinking.... knitting is kind of like your life once you accept Christ as your Savior. What was once just a jumble begins to take shape under the hands of the Master, and a pattern begins to appear. The longer the Master has to work on your life, the more complete the project. Wow... knitting and Christ... who would have thought???!!!! Oh yeah.... "I knit you together in the womb"... hm.... see... even Christ knits!
So thanks Rebecca for helping me to get started, and you know... this could be the new weight loss program I am looking for... I can't seem to put it down!!!!!
