How is your afghan coming along? Have you found a pattern you really like and want to incorporate it into other projects?
I am sitting here watching the snow fall. The world around me is transformed as I watch the flurries fall from the sky’; as I see the white blanket the covers the land; and I watch the window pane frost over from the cold. It lays a beautiful carpet of white on the ground and glistens. I donâ€™t mind the snow, as long as I can comfortably stay inside my warm home. 🙂
The knitting pattern for this panel is called â€œsnowflakeâ€ and seems appropriate for today. The crochet pattern is called â€œpopcornâ€. A large bowl of freshly popped corn is a favorite snack, especially when watching a movie. A time to sit back and relax and enjoy.
White, in the Salvation Colors, stands for purity, a clean heart. The purity of Christ offers us the cleansing we receive when washed in His blood. â€œHe appeared that He may take away our sins. In Him is no sin.â€ (1 John 3:5 NIV)
1 John 3:3 reminds us to look for this purity in our lives. â€œAll of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesusâ€™ life as a model for our own.â€ (MSG)
May you be infused with strength and purity, filled with confidence in the presence of God our Father when our Master Jesus arrives with all his followers. (1 Thes 3:13MSG)
