One of the cabinets in the laundry room holds my collection of fabrics. These fabrics are scraps from projects I did in the past or materials that were intend for a project but never got started. The other day I opened the cabinet and I noticed a very interesting piece of a quilted white fabric. Printed on this quilt this quilt is a Precious Moment picture of a boy riding on a pony. I started to make a baby blanket when I was still pregnant with Brahms. I envisioned my son cutely wrapped in it. I was almost done with it - I was about to finish attaching the pastel blue edging on it. In fact, the needle that I used to handsaw the sides was threaded and still where I left it fifteen and a half years ago. Brahms is now almost six feet tall (5'9") - the blanket has lost its relevance.
A while back I also started to go through the book of Matthew and writing my thoughts about it in this blog. I've been distracted. I read but I skipped the writing part of it. Well, just like opening that cabinet full of fabrics, my old journal brought me to the realization that I have an unfinished project. Unlike the baby blanket whose purpose became outdated, this Matthew Project remains relevant. As I write down my thoughts about the words of God I am forced to humble myself to ponder not only of the contents of the book but the wisdom of the author - God himself.
Lord I want to understand you. I want to honor you in the things I do. Please help.
