It's December 1st, and the very last month of our "Postcards From Heaven" BOM.
What a beautiful journey Allie and I have shared this year, taking turns each month to share a Scripture based stitchery with you, one that meant something personal to us and hopefully one that spoke into your heart as well.
This final free postcard pattern is from Allie and you can head over HERE to her blog to download it. She has embroidered all our Postcard blocks in redwork and will be piecing them into a quilt which I can't wait to see...
As I was stitching Allie's design I reflected on just how precious a gift it was when Jesus knocked on the door of my heart and asked to enter. It was just over 25 years ago and my life has never been the same.
I have climbed mountain tops and trekked valleys...I have rejoiced and I have wept...I have seen prayers answered miraculously, and others answered in ways that broke my heart. Yet, I trust my Lord and all HIS WAYS, that they are the BEST ways for His purposes to be fulfilled.
Never has He left me, nor forsaken me. Never have I doubted His love nor His perfect plan for my life.
Stitching this verse carried me back in time to a night that changed my life...
...a night when a life altering choice was mine alone to make...
...a night when I stood before the door and made a decision to answer that knock, to let the King of Glory come in and rule over my heart, mind and life forever.
Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of Glory shall come in.
My last postcard has been finished as a cushion...
...with an envelope back and fabric ties.
Last month's postcard was finished as pincushion and another month I made a wall hanging. Our postcards can become lovely gifts, and Christmas is the perfect time of the year for sharing God's word and promises in such a special hand-made display.
Have you considered making them for friends and family, or for neighbours and shut-ins??
All twelve of our Postcard patterns will remain free.
You will find the links for each of Allie and my blog posts here, as well as the links for downloading the patterns.
Be blessed always, and if you hear Jesus knocking but haven't yet opened the door, maybe it's time dear friend...maybe it's time.
