Happy Birthday To Me!

Yes, it’s my birthday today, good ole Friday the 13th. Nope, I’m not superstitious, so I think it’s wonderful anytime my birthday falls on a Friday. Being my birthday week and all, I’ve been working steadily on my Stained Glass Shawl and I’ve made some visible progress. I’m hoping to finish it today so it can block tomorrow so I can wear it to church on Sunday, but we’ll see. I’m almost done, so that’s an attainable goal.
The only downfall to lace, in my opinion, is that you can’t really tell what the pattern will look like as you work. It looks blobby and messy and wonky, and it definitely makes me doubt whether or not this thing is going to turn out to resemble anything like it’s supposed to. But this is where trust comes in–trust that even though you can’t see how it will turn out right now, as long as you follow the pattern, it will be okay. Hmm…this seems like a metaphor for my life right now…

I think maybe the person that said “faith is believing in what you can’t see” may have possibly been knitting lace at the time.
