So I finished the shawl I was supposed to have done this weekend. Only to find out its recipient won't be in town after all. Oh well, at least it's finished. And people got to pray over it. Kathy (Lesa's mom) loved the shawl and showed it off to everyone who'd stand still long enough to see it ^_^ Kinda cute, really.

I also told Bobbi I was making her a shawl and showed her the yarn for it. By golly, the woman began to cry! She was just so touched I was making her a shawl. I told her I had chosen red because 1. it's a color she wears a lot, and 2. because it's a color of courage. And I think that she's showing courage by stepping out on faith and opening up a new place of business which will be quite a bit bigger then what she's had so far. So I just hugged her a while. She's so sweet, and I'm so glad I'm able to do this thing for her.

I know this is a blessing, I know this is a good thing, but boy am I beginning to get overwhelmed by the Prayer Shawl Ministry already! I need to get more knitters/crocheters involved, because I have somewhere between 5-10 shawls in queue already, and every week more requests seem to be coming in. I have about 10 people or so in the ministry with me, but 2 others aside, they all have full time jobs, or have kids and school and what not. They hardly have time to make the shawls. I know one of the ladies who's got a lot of time and is a relatively fast knitter is currently on vacation, so I can't ask for her help at the moment. I'm not sure if the other one's come back from vacation yet or not. Which means that I'm bearing the brunt of the requests at the moment, and I'm beginning to drown in them. Forget having time to knit for myself. I don't. Definately need to put out a cry for more people. Just have to figure out how to go about it so people will actually come and join in. I knew this was going to be a growing ministry, but boy this is booming way quicker and bigger then even I dreamed of. God is good! ^_^
