"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

A Hooky Update

Here's a peek at a few of the hooky things that have been keeping my hands busy over the past month.
A Mommy & Me set ordered by a sweet grandma for her daughter and only granddaughter
A custom-made hat for a special five-year old who loves unicorns and purple. Thanks for the referral, Anna!
A custom-made purse for Rachel, whose dog chewed through the straps of her old purse :(
And a sneak peek at a special baby blanket I'm whipping up as quickly as I can for a friend who is past her due date with her third little one:
I'll post a picture of the finished product soon! 

And finally, because we're talking about fun, yarny things today, I got this box of goodies a month or so ago from fellow crocheter and sister in Christ:
 At the time, I was experiencing a season of discouragement about a few things in my life, and that box from a precious new friend who I have yet to meet face-to-face, along with winning a crocheting book randomly in a contest I didn't even remember entering, was a reminder to:
Because really, I am already immensely blessed. And you just never know when you'll be surprised with extra blessings right around the corner from people you would never even expect them from.
