That Little Something Extra

I am writing a knitter's devotional and would love feedback on this post.

"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little something extra."
What makes for an extraordinary knitting project?
Well, we pick the right pattern for the item we are making, one that is within our ability and suited to the person we are knitting for. We choose good yarn in the right colors. We leave ample time and knit carefully. We take out mistakes. We block the project to even up the stitches. We put on the finishing touches with care. We keep our yarn clean. We stitch with prayer and keep our love for the person we are knitting for in mind. All of these things make for a great project. 
All that we do, in every area of life,  should be characterized by this same thought and care. We should not offer shoddy work in our employment, in our homes, in our churches, in our community organizations or in our relationships. What we do, wherever we do it, we do for God.
Let us give our best.

In all the work you are given, do the best you can. Work as though you are working for the Lord, not any earthly master. Colossians 3:23


  1. So how many entries do you have for your devotional book? You are inspiring me.

    1. About 7. I want 31. It's coming along slowly.

  2. My knitting skills don't progress beyond the odd scarf or two, I am sure your work is beautiful :)

    1. Thanks... I am actually about at advanced beginner. I can do about two patterns well.
