Group think = fresh start!

I posed a question to my Facebook friends: how do I continue to craft and pay for supplies if I give everything away?  The suggestions were great–for every two items you sell, give one away or sell one, give one away!  Friends shared stories about knitting groups leaving scarves with “free” tags on them for homeless people, crocheting hats for cancer patients, and so much more!

My selfish heart tugged at this for few minutes.  If I made money, I could use it to buy myself more…stuff.  As I look around my apartment, I hard need more stuff.  I’m stuffed out.  The opportunity to bless others with beauty won out (and there could be a fundraiser idea in here).

This is a way to spread love–to literally spread God’s love with my hands and my feet.  This is a way to cloth with ruffles, to bless with loveliness, to even be Christ to those suffering.

Perhaps it’s a frivolous pursuit.  Maybe I’ll abandon it in two weeks…or two days.

But maybe, just maybe, we’re on to something here.
