While we’re talking about the distinction between being a Christian American and an American Christian, I’ve been making cross bookmarks for a variety of reasons.
One of the lesser motivations has been to play with fine crochet cotton and a steel hook to make the white ones above.
Here’s the pattern I used:
The Cross Marks Our Place
The heart then falls to the outside of the book, while the cross marks our place.
Hmmmm, just like real life.
God’s heart working through us falls to the outside world, while the cross holds our place in the world.
Do you Ravel?
You can see a tan version, in a tiny bit heavier weight thread, with the heart bobble on Ravelry. Add it to your queue, too!
REALITY CHECK: I cried to the Lord for encouragement a few weeks ago. And guess what He did? He encouraged me in an unexpected way. Interestingly enough, it wasn’t until I turned to Him for help that help came. It’s nice to know that He’s got my back.
