Fingerprint Friday – Do unto the least of these…

>There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it’s true
You’re a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you’re covered with the fingerprints of God

So look around you and see where YOU can see God’s fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Go to TheRustedChain for more Fingerprint Friday blog posts.

Today it is extremely cold in the Houston, TX area. We are having a hard freeze all weekend. While watching the news, I got to thinking how lucky I am. Sure we are having financial difficulties but at least we have a house, electricity, food, internet access, etc. None of which are fancy or even necessarily new (let me rant about my avacado green laminate countertops someday) but all are better than being homeless. Houston has a large population of homeless people, mostly single men, however, there are families out on the streets too.

The last time it was even close to this cold it snowed. I ran to Joanne’s (fabric store) for fleece to make a new scarf for my son. While there I checked out the remnant section & on a whim bought lots of fleece remnants on clearance. I decided right then & there that I was going to make scarves for others. Surely, since my son needed a new warm scarf, he wasn’t the only child or adult who needed a warm scarf either. I won’t claim that the Lord spoke to me & told me to do this but I do believe He gave me the idea & the nudge.

(my son’s & hubby’s fleece scarves)

So came home $20 poorer & with fleece in all sorts of patterns – golfballs, Texas Tech, neon green, flowers, etc. I dug up some leftover fleece from other projects to add to the pile. Fleece scarves are VERY simple to make. Fleece requires NO sewing whatsoever! You can just cut it & it will be fine. Fleece also come in 60″ widths which is a nice length for a scarf. I just layed out the fleece lengthwise, cut it into 3-4″ widths, sewed some (I’m anal that way), fringed the edges of others & ended up with over 30 scarves. I took them that afternoon to a local church run shelter in our area.

This is a project ANYONE can do for very little money, effort, or time. I highly encourage you to think of ways you can help other out who are less fortunate than you. What the heck – I CHALLENGE you! I will probably run to Joanne’s today to make more. Hobby Lobby, Hancocks, Wal-Mart, Joanne’s all sell fleece fabric.
