I designed it for my own enjoyment years ago. Plus, I had this big box of buttons that were begging to get used. (I'll blog about it another day.)
I know there are prettier, and certainly better made, pillows out there by gifted embroiderers. But I would be surprised if any of them have created one using these six words: "With God All Things Are Possible." They are from Luke 1:37, my favorite verse in the Bible.
These words were spoken to the virgin Mary and uttered to assure her that what God said would indeed take place. And it did. She gave birth to Jesus, the Son of God.
For me, it is a verse that captures the essence of the God I trust; the God who can do anything; the God who I envision saying, "Oh, that's easy!"
And it's a verse I want to remember for future days when I attempt to write something worthwhile here and come up empty. When to type even one word seems impossible.
Now you know why I chose to write about a pillow for as I embark on this new adventure there is some fear. Mine is a minuscule assignment compared to what God asked of Mary, but the unknown is always a bit daunting.
Maybe you can relate. Maybe you are the one today who needs the reminder that "With God ALL things are possible!"
Or, be inspired to make your own pillow with your favorite verse. If so, I hope you let me know and show me the end result.
