Ribbon Flowers

I am sure I am not the only one that is anticipating spring. Just yesterday we received a catalog in the mail filled with beautiful flowers. Already I am filled with excitement to see the first hyacinth bloom in my garden. But as I still have quite a wait I am feeling very content to enjoy my ribbon flowers. Yes, I did say “ribbon” flowers. : )

I just recently discovered instructions on how to create beautiful roses, leaves and a variety of all different flowers from fabric and ribbon. Just the other day I sewed a lovely pink calico apron, and added a delicate white organdy flower to the pocket. All week I haven’t been able to stop thinking of the many different ways to use my flowers.

And then I stopped to consider, it is only natural that I would enjoy creating these flowers, as I am an expression of God’s infinite creativity. And God must enjoy creating flowers as He has created so many beauties!! So today I am thankful that God has given each of us the ability to be creative.

“And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts. “ Exodus 31:3
