Last week I decided to stop in at a flea market I pass every morning going to babysit for my grandson. Of course when I go by at 6:45 a.m. it's not open. It shouldn't be open then because no one in their right mind should be out of bed then! Or at least that's my opinion. :) My mother-in-law used to tell me that I was missing beautiful sunrises by not getting up in time for them. I told her that if God wanted me to see them He'd either wake me up or plan them for later in the day!
Back to my story. So on Saturday morning I stopped in. I found this hand appliqued quilt top in the first booth I went to. I think that was a sign - God knew I needed it and so He just pointed it out to me right away. I've always thought I'd like to make this pattern though I can't tell you the name of it. But there's never been time for it to get to the top of my "I Want To Make This" list. And now someone has made it for me! She probably didn't know she was making it for me when she was stitching but God knew. Isn't it cool how He knows ahead of time all the wonderful things He has planned for us? If we'd just remember that and trust Him we wouldn't worry so much. Oh, maybe that's just me I'm talking about there.
And guess what it cost me? You'll never guess so I'll tell you. $40.50. Hand appliqued, did I mention that already? It was marked $45 and I asked if they would take less and they said, "Sure...take 10%off". See there, I told you God wanted me to have it!
