This song is like my theme song for this season in my life and I want to share it with you.
I also found this clip from one of the speakers Patsy Clairmont on YouTube the story really touched me too!
I've been so awed this weekend at the honesty and transperency that the speakers shared with, God uses our brokeness to shine through our lives, and I saw that truth very clearly exampled. I hope that I can be the same and let God shine through my brokeness.
I'm also reading Shila Walsh's book "Get Off Your Knees and Pray: A Woman's Guide to Life-Changing Prayer"
It's about just being honest with God and pouring out your heart to him, he can handle anything you can throw at him. That is also something I've been learning about recently too, before I thought maybe I was wrong to do that but that is not the case, that is exactly what he desires us to do. He wants to hear everything, and he already knows our hearts so by being honest and pouring it all out we allow him to start a work in our hearts, we allow him to comfort us with the comfort that only he can give. A love that is unfailing, a peace that passes understanding, infinite grace for everything.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

I left the tails unhidden purposefully since they will be added to a crazy quilt block the tails will be brought to the back of the work with a needle and sewn on by hand. It's logical to do it that way so that there are no uneven stitches from trying to hide ends within the work thus resulting in nicer looking tatted clouds. This is how I do all my tatted pieces that will be attached to crazy quilting, if the piece is to stand on it's own then I hide the tails in the work.
I hope you love the happy little clouds Simona and I can't wait to see your landscape completed!
This song's been on my heart so I thought I'd add it in here the clouds make me think of the verse "We lift our eyes to Heaven" LOL Enjoy!
