One of my favorite Psalms is 139. Reading it today this portion stood out to me.
One of my daughters has her own website where she sells the most beautiful hats, scarfs, sweaters that she creates. Along with selling her products, she also makes hats for cancer survivors, wraps for new mothers or mothers who have lost children. She is a teacher and each year makes neat hats for every one of her students. Every item she knits is a work of love whether she is making something to give away or filling an order for something she sells.
Watching her knit I am amazed at the skill required to create these beautiful gifts. She clearly did not get that talent from me.
Today I thought about the time, skill and effort she puts into each creation. I believe that is what God has done for us. We are not just accidents that happened. God has designed us with love and skill also.
I am a product of the greatest artist that has ever existed – Almighty God.
Over the years my daughter has made me several beautiful scarves, wraps and sweaters. I treasure each one. First, because I know they were made with love. But also because they are so lovely. I always get compliments when I wear one. My gifts are all stored carefully on shelves in my closet. I would never think of just throwing them on the floor or stuffing them carelessly in a drawer.
So – I realize I need to take good care of my body. First, because God made me with love. But also because this body – even old and arthritic – is still a wonder.
To those who read this post, I hope you will realize what a miracle you are and how much you are loved by the great Creator.
