Imported Irish linen, laces, ribbons, trims, and plenty of spray starch are the order of the day today. My grandson is due in about 2 months and this grandmother had better get cracking on the finery that he will wear when he becomes a child of God.
Not that I haven't been thinking of nothing else since it was announced that there would be a new life in this family way back in January! There is nothing to top the day that a child is welcomed into the family of God and an appropriate wardrobe is the order of the day.
So the embroidery machine has been humming (as I write this post).
Pattern pieces have been pinned and cut and soon grandma will sit down and begin the task of lovingly assembling Christopher's finery for that all important day. Not only will his clothing be held together with stitches, buttons and ribbons but also with prayers. Every stitch will be accompanied by a fervent prayer that this little boy will grow to know, love and serve the God who made him and brought him into this world.
