Vision

Every child has a vision.

When a child says, “I want to be a Doctor when I grow up.”

Or whatever other job a child might say.

Or if “I don’t know what I want to do” is the answer,

That’s a vision.

A gift from Our Lord Our God

Who stirs up that special gift,

Be it specific or exploratory.

He will guide and guard.

Define and refine

Until each child makes his or her way

Towards the calling He has chosen.

He did it for Christ.

 

Knitting Club

The yarns for the sweater were in lovely colours, she was the best in the knitting club. People wondered how nimble her hands were for a 98 year old.

The majority of the knitting club consisted of her family whom she had taught. They had made sweaters for practically everyone in the village and guess what, they were all in similar colours.

A Dress for Summer

I used to make a point of sewing a dress each summer.  It was something I enjoyed doing and this was many many years ago.  I learnt to sewq by helping my Mum and did sewing lessons at school and at a Singer Sewing Club.  One thing I struggled with is putting on the zip.  However there was a great satisfaction when I achieved it.  Then I got crafty and chose patterns that didn’t need a zip!
