My new go-to activity to get out of my head is knitting. Jigsaw puzzles are on the back burner. I knit during my prayer time in the morning, when watching TV, while chatting with friends. I also just sit and knit and listen to what God wants to tell me. Sometimes, nothing. Just sit and be in God presence. It was at one of those moments that I heard who the shawl was for. Now I have a couple going, one easy, the other needing a little attention. I’m listening.
(I didn’t take a picture of the shawl, but here are the two I’m praying on.)
