Keep on learning

"Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning"
(Proverbs 9:9).

There are the sayings, "you learn something new everyday" and "you're never too old to learn something new". I pray that I will continue to learn more about my heavenly Father as I continue to study His word. I love our women's Bible study where we learn something new every time we meet and where we are able to challenge each other and encourage each other with our walks of faith. I am also enjoying reading different passages of the Bible in an attempt to read through the Bible in a year (following the schedule recommended by our Pastor) and learning more about God's plan of redemption.

Recently, I have learned something else new. I decided to buy a sewing machine (to answer my brother in law's question, "What possessed you to do that"?) because my mom is gone for a month and I have some sewing I needed her to do. Well, it is definitely something that I will learn more as time goes by, but I did enjoy making my first project- a bandanna purse. Oh, my mom will be "sew" impressed when she comes home!!! I'm thankful for my very talented friend who patiently taught me how to thread my machine and for my recent shopping trips at the fabric stores! I look forward to my mom coming home and being able to give me many more instructions as I take on more sewing projects.

Here's my first project:

Yes, Mom, this is me sitting behind a sewing machine!!

My model, who is also liking my new hobby.
