It is sometime hard for those of us who are left-brains to be creative. Knitting is my creative side. Knitting is organized creativity - it is organized knot tying. It is counting. It is a process. And I love the yarn, especially the natural fibers like wool, cotton, silk, and bamboo and combinations of all of the above.
The Proverbs 31 woman is called a Wife of Noble Character. There are many ways I fall short of this ideal. Verse 13 of the chapter says "She selects wool and flax and works with eager hand." I don't know if she was knitting - probably weaving which I also want to learn - but I can identify with her and hopefully provide little things for my family. (Check my blog: www.patternofgrace.blogspot.com for the latest little project.)
Psalm 139:13 says: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb
God also used a process when He formed us, very carefully counting and planning. It is amazing. My response must be one of gratitude and adoration and knowing that as He began the planning so many years ago, He will finish what He started - He will be with me to my old age and gray hairs. What assurance and love!
