a kiss is just a kiss . .
I found a very affordable cashmere/merino blend for Knitpicks several years ago and ordered 3 skeins to make a scarf for Bubba. The only problem with this yarn selection is that it will spoil you rather quickly . . once you work with cashmere, and find yourself mesmerized by the decadence of that tiny bit of string as it grows between your needles, as it flows from the skein and through your fingers to form the stitches that drape like succulent grapes hanging from a vine . . on my! And yet, this was a perfect reflection of a Kiss if you think about it . . . the simple act of closeness that conveys a Multiple of Meanings . . the ability to speak VOLUMES without ever uttering a single sound.
Pattern: *K2, P2; rep from *, end K2, p1.
Repeat until you are content with the length .... or have to go to work, or do the dishes or do carpool! Then pick it up and knit some more! I really like this pattern because because the edges don't roll, and with a solid color yarn your handiwork is highlighted and the visual effect is quite stunning despite the simplicity.
Each day i choose simply to seek His face, to cast a glance towards Him - and He replies with promises of Provision and Guidance and Direction with each reflection of Trust i share with Him. Rather than criticize a situation i find myself in, if i opt to whisper a prayer of Thankfulness it becomes a Kiss of Trust and results in a contented heart rather than a critical one.
I Peter 5:7 calls me to share an obedient kiss of casting all my cares/anxiety on Him . .
and in turn i receive - because He cares for you!
Ps. 141:8 But my eyes are fixed on you, O Soverign Lord; in You i take refuge.
Col. 2:6-7 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
Continue to live in Him,
Rooted and Built up in Him,
Strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and Overflowing with Thankfulness!
As time goes by.
It's February .... that special month for sharing kisses with those you love!
