wrapped in brown parcel paper and put away in the bottom of a box.
hiding in the back of grandmama's linen closet.
at the end of a rack in a thrift shop.
the forgotten. once brand new.
once clutched tightly in someone's excited grip
now, brought back to life and ready to be made into something beautiful.
something warm and comforting, like a baby's first quilt.
just a piece of cloth, but how wonderful.
how sweet that God can use this simple piece of cloth
to remind me yet again that He has not forgotten me.
even when I feel forgotten,
put away on a shelf, misunderstood, alone.
He brings me out, dusts me off and washes me clean.
He makes me a NEW creation!
thank you, Lord, for ever reminding me of how good You are and how much You love me.
have a blessed weekend,
(happy news - there will be a fun giveaway this coming wednesday to celebrate the grand opening of a vintage fabric section in my etsy shop! - these photographs are of some of the new items that will be listed.)
