So, I'm Quilting...

I can check that off my list of things I've always wanted to learn.

I have pictures, but don't look too closely, I don't recommend it... I know you all hold me and my talents in high esteem. I hate to disappoint...

I have thoroughly enjoyed it and funny how it seems the older I get, the more I appreciate the opportunity to learn new things. I could take class after class, and never tire of learning. It's not always easy, it doesn't always come naturally, but the outcome is always worth it. I believe it's very important to remain teachable in all things, whether in our parenting, marriage, relationships, schooling, or godly counsel, we would be wise to listen and learn. Proverbs 1:5 says "A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels"

I admit it, I'm a know-it-all. Over the years, the Lord has had to show me that I will never have it all right and I will never be perfect or know all the answers. I make mistakes. I know, hard to believe, but I do. ;P  Making mistakes is all part of learning, and if I can be teachable through my ignorant times and foolishness, then the result is reflected in my character and understanding. In my stubbornness and arrogance, the Lord has blessed me still. I pray daily for wisdom, understanding, and a teachable spirit.

Psalm 86:11 "Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name."
