Simply Sunday Challenge: Sew Fabulous~! Video

Did you know that you are wonderfully made? God formed you in the womb, and knew the plans for your life while you were but a thought in your parent's minds. Not only this, but you are cut from the most amazing cloth, and sewn carefully with the perfect thread and stitch. You were formed by the Master tailor himself. Each one of us is a magnificent creation spun from the master tailor's hands! How wonderful to know you are made perfectly--as God planned!

**Update*** The Campin' Critter challenge has been extended to the 7'th of May due to the week off for Easter!!

Today, our challenge is Sew Fabulous! As Mother's day is right around the corner, I wanted to pay a tribue to the magnificent mother, or God's design as our guardian and protector. I know that not everyone in the world was blessed with their perfect idea of a mother. Many were. If so, you were very blessed. However, if you were not, always remember you were cut from the cloth of the most magnificent father ever known to man! You are fashioned carefully and purposefully....every cut or tear in your cloth, was a journey--a learning experience that guided your perfect shape. Every garment, no matter how wonderfully made must be washed. Your daily toils are but small soils and tears, and when you decide to be the person God made you to be, you receive a wonderful cleansing--removing all tears, soils, and alterations.
So remember, that no matter how many soils, discoloration, tears, or alterations your precious life has encountered....there is always someone who can wash those hurts away, and mend your heart. Use those experiences to learn and grow. NEVER let them take your spirit over--they were but an experience, that you my sweet love can always RISE above. You are not broken! Rejoice, for today is your day! You are SEW fabulous, and wonderfully made!!!!
