The Rescuer and girly pillows

Beautiful words about the One who rescues me time and time again:
"Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
~Matthew 11:28

"I have told you these things so that you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
~John 16:33

"Isn't it here? The wonder? Why do I spend so much of my living hours struggling to see it? Do we truly stumble so blind that we must be affronted with blinding magnificence for our blurry soul-sight to recognize grandeur? The very same surging magnificence that cascades over our every day here...All my eyes can seem to fixate on are the splatters of disappointment across here or me."
Ann Voskamp from her book One Thousand Gifts

"In essence, there is only one thing that God asks of us- that we become men and women of prayer, people for whom God is everything and for whom God is enough. That is the root of peace. We have the peace when the gracious God is all we seek. When we start seeking something besides Him, we lose it."
~Brennan Manning

Looking forward to (hopefully) a weekend to sew and paint things for the farmhouse. I enjoyed so much this week making pillows for Lydie's bedroom. They are to be paired with a hot pink comforter with white polka dots. Very spunky, just like our girl.
What a gift to have the time to sit and create.
