Volunteer Knitting August 6, 2007
My mother has volunteered me to knit Christmas Stockings for her friend. I am knitting for a her daughter-in-law and her granddaughter. I love my mother and all, but I wonder if I’ll even get any of my own knitting done if I’m constantly knitting for other folks. Not out of my own volunteering spirit. There is a lot of knitting yet to be done. I’m still working on that sweater … and a scarf … maybe socks … lace. So many projects, so little time.
it’s aliiiiiive! August 4, 2007
Okay, well, I am, I think. It was a long July, and now that it’s August, I am shocked that this summer has slipped by me so quickly. People are coming back, and things are changing. I’m still figuring out who I am, and I’m still trying to give my faith the upper hand. In a world where we are called to be faithful, we are constantly tempted to be simply of this world, rather than above it. That doesn’t mean that we are, or that we don’t fall, but that does mean that we strive to live as Christ lived, to live in him, with others, in this world of God’s creation. We are called to follow Christ. We know where we are going. We have hope.
