Are your hands busy?

Proverbs 31:13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
I just love the fall months, when the weather cools and it's not to warm to have a project on your lap. I have a basket or bag near every sitting area in the house with different projects that I have begun. I don't worry too much about when they will be finished as I usually only pick them up while resting or when the family wants to watch a movie, although now a days a usually hold the granddaughter and take her to my room and sing her to sleep. It's a burden us Grandmothers just have to bare :)
When Baby is not here, I work on the crocheting, or the sewing, or the embroidery project, and then there is one more added project which is writing. It is so nice to have things to share with others by just using my time wisely and keeping my hands busy.
Each one of us is a work in progress. God "knit" us together in our mother's womb, and he placed us in the family He wanted us in, and called us, and wooed us to Himself as we grew to continue the work He began in us. We are His workmanship, created for good works that have been preordained by God. That doesn't make us robots that have to do as He say, but, in love, we do the good works that He lays before us, that the Holy Spirit guides us to. So the next time you are prompted to give that friend or Mother in Law a call, do it, the next time the Holy Spirit puts that strange thought of LOVE in your head, act upon it. Mail that letter, bake that cake, shake that hand, smile that smile, for it creates a tapestry of love that only God can create with such lasting beauty.
Blessings, Lady
