Teacup Pincushion

This morning when I was reading Sherry's blog at Blessings From Our Nest, she was showing a photo of the wonderful things she had received in a swap. One of of the items was an adorable Teapot pin cushion. It made me think of how I was blessed some years ago. I was just getting into quilting and I had gone to a quilting group. They were going to do a pincushion swap at the meeting. I didn't know how to make a pincushion!!! So I decided not to participate, however when I got there a sweet lady had brought extra pincushions for anyone who didn't bring one. So they put a number on each pincushion and then we drew a number. So you got which ever pincushion that matched your number. I had spotted an adorable pincushion made from a real teacup. Since I collected tea cups I really wanted that one. So I prayed and asked God to let me have the teacup pincushion. I believe it's OK to ask God for even the little things. That doesn't mean I get everything I ask for, but I believe he wants that kind of relationship with us. Where we know we can come to him with everything, He is my Father and I am his daughter! Well I had the number 12, so as we counted down and each pincushion was being claimed I held my breath. When it came to my number, I looked at the teacup and there it was, the number 12!!!! So I keep the pincushion next to my sewing machine and every time I look at it, it's another reminder of how much God loves me, His daughter! And even better He loves each of you the same way!!!!

Donna how precious the Lord is... and yes he wants that intimate relationship with his children, he knows the number of hairs on our head why wouldn't he want us to ask and talk to him about every detail of our lives. I love this story of the teacup and how it serves as a reminder to you
Wishing you a most blessed Easter
