Can you hear that? It's the hum of my sewing machine. Ahhhhh. I love the sound. It brings an instant calm to me. Sewing feeds my soul. It's a gift straight from God that allows me to refuel and refocus. Right now it is encouraging quietness. And, providing great satisfaction as I am ever amazed that I can take random cuts of fabric and run them through my machine and they come out the other side a new, wearable, practically useful creation. Amazing. What fun!
Do you think something such as sewing could ever be a worship experience? I would never have imagined, but indeed it has been. How blessed and grateful I am to be privileged to serve Christ and my precious family while doing something I so thoroughly love and enjoy!

1 Thessalonians 4:11 - "Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands."


  1. So well put!! I feel this way about sewing the dresses for Dress A Girl... it is such an honor to be able to help while doing something I love!!!

  2. Obviously I'm in 100% agreement with you Suzanne! :)
