My "cozy morning sweater" is moving right along as I'm nearly halfway through the second sleeve. I'm really, really getting excited about this one. I can't wait to join the sleeves to the body and finish the yoke. We have some lake days coming up, and I plan to bring this along. While I doubt I will have a chance to knit lakeside, as I'm often chasing kids, I'm usually the one the little girls want in the cabin when they're sleeping. So I will likely have some nap times just sitting in the cabin, waiting for them to wake up.
I'm reading Sally Clarkson's "The Mission of Motherhood" which has been extremely convicting. It talks about the design and purpose of motherhood. I feel like it's almost an updated version of Edith Shaeffer's "Hidden Art of Homemaking" which was another book I loved. If anything, this books stresses the importance of motherhood, and how the role of mothers impacts the whole family. It's convicting because not a single woman could live up to this original design. That is why I love the grace-breathing words of Sally, continuously pointing us to Christ, and the work he has done. Still, in a role where it's easy to get sucked into the lie that it doesn't matter what we do, and no one cares, or notices, the truth of the purpose of a mothers role comes through loud and clear in this one.
Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along, where others share what they are knitting and reading.
