Do you have a sewing machine and an extra hr? (wink, you know you do- "Chopped" on Food Network is an hr long!) What can you do with your time to help someone else? Even better, anonymously? here's an idea... how about sewing little baby blankets for your towns pregnancy care center. These are small for clutching (only 16x16) and can be embroidered later with the baby's name and delivery date. And, best part, they only take 30 mins total! How about some baby hats, pillowcase dresses, headbands, the possibilities are really endless.
The big idea here is to get generous for others. I personally don't have huge chunks of time, I have little 30mins here and there. What can i do in 30mins? What are some needs around me? Is my neighbor sick, can i make them some lunch? Is a friend needing something pretty, can i make a painting for them? Is someone new to church, can i have lunch with them? Is someone a new mom, can i sit at their house with them to keep them company, or invite them over? Do have a bunch of fabric laying around (me, me, me!), can i make something for someone? How can I bless someone today?
I am a pastor's wife and mama to a 8yr old and 5 yr old.
