I said to my mother today, “God must really want me to make this banner because I SOOOOOOO do not want to do it.” Why does He do that?
The more pertinent question is, how do I always get myself into these projects that I then struggle to finish? Why am I such an overcommitter? Where is that little voice of reason that says, “hey MORON, when are you possibly going to have the time, patience and the funds to create a 6’x4′ banner made out of only the best fabrics and the best effort?” YOU CAN’T EVEN SEW!
Now that I’ve ranted, let me explain. Our church is doing a Christmas program. One of the ladies of the church has a vision to do a banner program and needed people to do banners. I had planned to do the banner over the summer while Munchkin was gone but King and I became all-encompassing far sooner than I imagined it would have. On top of that, I drew a blank every time I would sit down to seriously think about what I wanted to do. For months I had no inspiration. The church lady would ask, “what’s your banner?” My dumb look must have alarmed her because she kept asking about it – EVERY TIME I SAW HER.
Of course, here I am, scrambing at the very last minute to get this thing done. I’m frazzled because I have a terrific inspiration (the burning bush “I AM” Exodus 3:14) but I CAN’T SEW. DUH. Wish me luck. If it looks like anything other than a cat put it together with masking tape and pipe cleaners, you can give all the credit to the Almighty.
