I saw this on Pinterest a while back and knew I had to have one.
Valentine’s Day is coming and I need some decorations. This is a perfect one. My problem was I didn’t have the basket.
I searched the web for a basket like that. Everything I found was $15 or more. I would like to have a wire basket, but not that bad!
I was at my local Goodwill store and guess what I found!
I made the hearts. I had plenty of left over red, red and white, and heart material to make several.
I made three different sizes. If you look closely at the picture, you can see I just hand-sewed the edges. It’s not perfect by any means, but that gives it the handmade charm.
Next month, I’ll put something else in it. No idea what. I’ll have to get inspired.
I look at my baskets and I am reminded of one of my favorite verses in the Bible, Isaiah 40:12.
“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?”
I read this and I think about how big my God is! Picture here what is being said! Cup your hand and put a little water in it. God measured the waters this way. The heavens are marked off by the breadth of His hand! Stretch your hand out just try to imaging the heavens fitting inside that area. He holds the dust in a basket! He measured the mountains on scales. How awesome, how mighty, how big is God! WOW!
I love the way God using ordinary, everyday things to remind of of Him.
