So this morning after dropping the girl off at school and while my boys were still sleeping, I grabbed my coffee and started reading through my blog roll.
I read so many amazing posts about fall decorating and back to school, but this one really grabbed me.
Isn't is darling? Go read her post.
I love how she talks about praying for the children in Nicaragua as she was sewing this banner for the preschool kids there. I had tears in my eyes when I finished reading her post.
When I am making clothes or even a crayon roll I pray for the person who will wear or use what I am making.
With each stitch, I ask God for protection, peace, joy, strength and whatever else comes to mind for that specific person.
When I see my daughter wear the skirt that I sewed in prayer for her I know that she is literally covered in my prayers and I feel such peace.
To all you sewing mama's out there:
Do you do this as well? If not, you should try it!
