Wants and Needs

For some time I have been wanting a cabinet for our sewing room.  I had prayed about it, but like too often, I had prayed not really believing I would recieve it.  Finances have been a little tight for us as inflation is taking its toll here in the US and didn't see any way we would have the extra money to purchase one, but then last month my aunt passed away and my cousin offered me this beautiful cabinet.  Its actually exactly what I had been wanting.

It took me a while to organize, clean, andrearrange everthing in the sewing room after we got it.  One day while I was working, it dawned on me that this was exactly what I had prayed for.   God gives us everything we need and is so gracious to give us things we want also. 

Here she is all organized with fabric.  

Here's a picture of the other side of the room where I have my wool stored under a work table.  I am able to dye back here now that I have a hotplate set up, which is so much nicer than having to work in the kitchen and then walking thorugh the house with pots of dye water to dump in the back sink.

We are blessed.  Sometimes we need to remember just how much He cares for us.

  1. Thank you for sharing. What a great God we serve and how great is His love for us! He cares about all of our life -- not just the part that needs food and shelter, but the creative part of us too. When I look at the beauty God has created around us, I know the creative part of me is a BIG reflection of Him.
