Crafting Memories

looking down the wall in my so called Knitting Room, filled now with memorabilia that reflects friends and family, past and present, draws my heart back to Psalm 100.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs.
KNOW that the Lord is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His;
We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving
and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through ALL generations.

from the patterns that reflect a mom's love for her daughter in the garments she stitched for her... all hemmed with prayers as she went to school, played outside, learned of God's love in Sunday School and GAs ...

to the bureau scarf that is crocheted in colors that i would have never chosen but yet symbolized a time and desire on my grandmother's part to decorate a family heirloom with a touch of what she felt was beautiful .....

to the cross stitch pieces of my dear friends that i have received as wedding gifts or that symbolized a season in life where love was the common bond and interest in the things that we shared ....

to the photographs of my own children that portray the NEXT generation to sing praise to Him .....

looking back ... looking ahead ..... and resting in His faithfulness as demonstrated time and again, year after year .... for constant and consistent reminders that the Lord IS good ....

and His love endures
