Ugh! I know I have been so Lamo lately! Well, I’ve been trying to figure somethings out in my life right now…and with thinking comes knitting, right?!?! Well, awhile back I complained that I lost a blog, and I wanted to share some fabulous yarn with you that I found on Etsy…well, the day after Christmas my yarn arrived, I was so excited I swear I had walked to the mailbox everyday knitting needles in hand. The yarn is all handspun and handpainted, which I find tedious and worth the price I paid!
I stood, a mendicant of God,
Before His royal throne
And begged Him for one priceless gift
For me to call my own.
I took the gift from out His hand,
But as I would depart,
I cried, “But, Lord, this is a thorn,
And it has pierced my heart!
This is a strange and hurtful gift
Which Thou hast given me.”
He said, “I love to give good gifts;
I gave My best to thee.”
I took it home, and though at first
The cruel thorn hurt sore,
As long years passed, I grew at last
To love it more and more.
I learned He never gives a thorn
Without this added grace:
He takes the thorn to pin aside
The veil which hides His face!
