It's my turn this month to share a new Postcard pattern with you.
I chose this Scripture because it's very personal to my own life story, but I know it touches the hearts of most Christians, especially when times are tough and it seems that life is on a downward spiral.
Jesus told us that we are worth MORE than many sparrows to the Father, that God has counted every hair on our head and He knows exactly what we want and need before we even ask.
It's a beautiful thing to be loved that much...
...so as you stitch this block let His truth sink deep into your soul, and believe it.
You know, I was reading 2 Corinthians chapter 5 yesterday and verse 11 jumped off the page at me...
"but what we are is known to God"
...because it made this month's Postcard scripture even more astounding.
God knows us warts and all, sin and all, bad attitude and all, selfishness, pride, envy, neglect and ALL.
What we are is known to God and despite this He STILL declares "you are worth more than many sparrows to Me" (Matthew 10:31) and I think that's awesome, don't you?
All the blocks in our Postcards From Heaven BOM this year are free downloads. Allie and I chose to alternate sharing a different block with you every month by designing 6 blocks each throughout 2016.
UPDATE 2021 -
Block 3 is a free download (as well as Block 1) HERE
My blocks are coloured and feature buttons and beads whilst hers are beautifully redworked...
My blocks have each verse as a paraphrase/conversation as though a father is writing a postcard to his daughter, whilst Allie has decided to stitch the full KJV scripture.
If you prefer to use her wording she kindly shares the template over here at her blog.
We encourage you to stitch the postcards from your heart in your own precious style - and we'd love to see photos of them too so email either of us with photos, okay?
I'm half way through stitching the patterns for the March issue of The Stitchery Club.
There's a bit of country, a bit of love, and an inspiring pear so far...
Now to finish the other three.
All information about this monthly PDF pattern club can be found over HERE.
It's open to members worldwide and there's no minimum membership to be locked in to.
Why don't you give it a try?
Have a blessed day! I'm off to visit Blossom for coffee before starting work. It's really wonderful that she's moved just 5 minutes away...really really wonderful.
