I sit here looking at the snow, dreaming of spring. I am cuddled up in my snuggie and working on some knit and crochet projects to add to Book 2 so I can make it available for purchase soon.
In the meantime, I am looking over the instructions for the last panel of the Salvation Colors Afghan/Lapghan. Green in this ensemble represents our growing and maturing in Christ.
Unlike our physical bodies, spiritual maturity comes at many ages; depending on when Christ is accepted into your life. Many people then remain as babies, satisfied with milk and don’t grow. But Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 13:11. When I was a child, I talked like a child. I thought like a child. I reasoned like a child. When I became a man I put childish ways behind me. We must mature, grow beyond our comfort zones and step out for Christ. The names of these patterns seemed so appropriate for the green maturity panel; Wheatear and Sweet Pea.
How are you maturing in Christ today?

Next month I will post the edging and seaming to complete the project. Whether you chose to use the stitch patterns of your own or you chose to use other patterns, it is the colors and the story that matters. Are you prepared to tell your own story of accepting Jesus Christ in your life?
