I took these pictures at night, so I don't think they came out well, but I'm making a newborn baby hat and booties, for my younger cousin. She's having her first baby in July, so I wanted to make something for her, for her baby shower that's coming up. The hat is almost done, I've just got to work on the shoes. I'm kind of stuck on one point, but hopefully I'll figure it out all by the time of the baby shower, which is in a couple of weeks.
An excerpt from First Light: Women's Daily Devotional &Journal:
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for such sacrifices God is pleased
Hebrews 13: 16 NIV
How do you sacrifice to give others what they need?
We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not please ourselves.
Romans 15: 1 NIV
When have you helped to bear someone's failure or difficult circumstances? When has someone shared with you during a time of need in your life?
I can answer the first question:
My first thought when I think about helping people goes straight to money. I always think that the only way I am helping somebody is when or if I give them some money. But the truth is, when I give out of myself not just financially...but maybe give a hug or a smile or an encouraging word, that's a sacrifice (especially when you don't even feel well yourself), and I might have been giving somebody just what they needed at just the right moment.
Have you ever given somebody a hug or a compliment, and they turn right around and say, "Thank you, I needed that".
I made this. I'm still surprised. The only thing is when I crochet this, I seem to have more stitches on it, than the video said you are supposed to have. When I connected new yarn to the cuff to start working on the palm of the glove, somehow I messed up, and added more stitches than what I was supposed to. But either way, you can pretty much tell what this is, right? (I mean if I hadn't of written it in the title and labeled it, right?)
I just have to finish the fingers part, and I'm all done. :D
