Do you remember the post, “Because She Wants it?” It was about a dress my granddaughter wanted to me make along with a dress just like it for her doll. It took me a long time to find just the right fabric and then to my dismay the silky fabric was a nightmare to sew and it ended up in the trash.
Finally I found some more fabric that was cotton and started to work on the dress. It has been years since I have put in a zipper much less made a sleeveless dress. However, when the grandkids want something I do my best to make it happen.
I had fun making these little dresses, not because I like to sew clothing. I hate to sew clothing, I hate to make things fit, I hate having to be so careful. But, I love Jenna and I love to give her gifts that make her smile.
I know you are getting my drift. . .You have heard it before but I am just going to remind you once more. God the Father loves to give us gifts too, actually even more than I love to give Jenna gifts. I know I am being rather simple here, but how come we don’t catch on when it really is so simple. God gave us the gift of His son, what a gift and we don’t even get the reason the gift was given.
I hope you will spend some time studying about God and the reason Jesus died for us. I hope you understand it in just a small way. What ever the reason Jesus had to die, it provided the gift of salvation for you and for me.
