Yesterday, I preached on loving others as Jesus loves us and it reminded me I needed to get back to my crochet goals. If you remember, from my New Year’s Post, I set a goal of 52 crocheted hats to give away to the needy by next winter. It was supposed to be just one a week. I know, it gets cold before Jan. 1 but I figured it would average out to that because I thought I’d probably be able to do a couple a week but…
Yep, you’ve guessed it. I’ve fallen WAY behind. I should have almost 26 hats by now but I only have 7… I thought I had 10 but unless I’ve misplaced them… there are 7 hats and one scarf. I’ve really got to get on this! This is a worthy goal! This is something I feel passionately about! I should easily be able to do this.
Part of the issue is of course just sitting down to do it but part of it is also the cost of yarn. I want them to be nice and warm and I want to use patterns that are fairly simple. So… I really need to start watching for yarn sales on the wool ease bulky yarn. It makes up so nice and fast.
Anyway, this is one way I want to love my community and I need to make it a priority. It’s not that hard, I just need to set that time aside each week and dedicate myself to it. If I am truly passionate about it then it should be easy. I can do this!
A friend of mine uses the #livetogive often and she is right! We should live to give! We should live to love! #livetolove
