~Even more than I can ask or THINK!~


My God is beyond Awesome! I have a sewing machine in the States, but could not bring it with us. In the states I did not sew many clothes (except some skirts and bloomers for the girls)for we had a nice, cheap thrift store on every corner. But, here, there are no places to get clothes for really cheap. We've been needing and wanting a sewing machine, and the girls are at the age to want to learn to sew, but we didn't have the money to buy a sewing machine for us here. Then one day I got an email saying that Missions Flight International (MFI) was wanting to donate a sewing machine to me for FREE!!! Now, this is not just any sewing machine...this one is made by "VIKING HUSQVARNA" and normally costs TONS OF MONEY and does everything but wash dishes....but it may do that if I can find the right button. =) It is soooo fancy and advanced, I'm going to have to read the instruction booklet to learn how to turn it on. ;-) It is one AMAZING sewing machine! (This is one of the things that the TLC team brought me from Florida!) It embroiders things too. The girls and I are really looking forward to buying some material and making some clothes, doll clothes, etc. I would have been happy to have a simple sewing machine, but God gave me a CADILLAC. PRAISE THE LORD for giving me MORE THAN THE DESIRES of my heart...and may He richly bless MFI (and Harold and Kayla =) for their kindness to me.
~The thing I'm leaning my arm on has all of the attachments to embroidery with. Kimberly is holding a big hoop that you can put around your material to keep it in place, while the machine embroiderys in the middle of the material. The sewing machine is behind Sarah to the right, it's cover is to the left! The sewing machine has a computer on it too. WOW!!!~

Isn't it wonderful that God sees and knows your needs no matter where you are in the world? Like the song says, "If you're faithful to the faith, God is faithful to the Faithful." You all are definately faithful people.
Blessings

Heather, I am so happy for you! It's funny how different people are! I look at the little simple machine we have and stand back in wonder as my HUSBAND operates it!! He has done way more with those machines than I have since he used to work in a waterbed sheet factory! I just try not to catch my fingers under the needle!!!

Michelle said...

OH! How awesome is our God! That is great to see you being so blessed! You are wonderful and I am very happy for you!!! Praise the Lord for his abundant blessings! I had lots of people (my mom, Grandma, Aunt) try to teach me to sew growing up. I never had the want to sit there long enough to do it. But, DeAnna has Granny Jowers to teach her and she loves it! And has a very natural ability for it. It is so nice that you will be able to teach your girls!!! Lots of Love and Prayers, Michelle J

PRAISE THE LORD! I'm so glad that Jesus gave you a sewing machine. I love to sew and have sewed a lot, but give me a machine that just goes forward and backwards these days. My sewing machine does a bunch of neat things, but I've never tried them, not even when I was making my daughter's wedding dress, her 2 bridesmaids dresses and the 2 flower girls dresses. Each one of those dresses was fully lined, too. God surely helped me because I did it while working full time. I'm not bragging, just shaking my head in amazement myself. I did take 2 days off work as the wedding got nearer--called my boss and told him I had sewing to do! :) He was great about it. I've been retired for 4 years now, and haven't sewed a thing, but thinking about it inspires me to want to sew again...maybe something for my two granddaughters.
