In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha who was always doing good and helping the poor. Acts 9:36
I recently completed knitting a beautiful shawl I found in a book titled "Prayer Shawl Ministry". I enjoyed the leisurely pace of knitting which allowed time to be still and listen for God’s still voice.I find knitting to be relaxing and an escape from the busy world around me. The pattern is attractive and I especially like the decorative edging. I have prepared a slide show of the shawl being modeled by my teddy bears and some Knitting Bible Study friends. It is part of a contest sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn Company. You can check it out and make comments on the project as well as vote for it.
Like Tabitha, I enjoy doing things for others and can’t wait to give this to someone who would enjoy it.

For God so loved the world….. John 3:16
A teddy bear is a soft cuddly source of comfort. You can buy them for as little as a dollar or as this bear recently demonstrates, as much as $1725.00. Yes, this bear is very valuable. Someone was willing to pay a large sum of money to own it.
As precious as this bear is you are more valuable and a larger price has been paid for you. “For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16.
When sin entered the world the relationship with God was broken. He wants a relationship with us and there was only one way this could be accomplished. God sent His Son as a sacrifice to create a bridge that would bring us together. Jesus was born of a virgin, walked on this earth and told of God’s love. He died a horrific death on the cross. Yes, He could have saved himself, but He chose to complete the process to pay for the sins of you and of me. Death could not keep him. He rose from the grave and walked again among the people. He ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of God.
That is a high price to pay to you. But to God, you are worth it. The price of this salvation was paid and is now free to you. All you have to do is accept it.
