pattern // just stay calm
A couple of weeks ago I shared some thoughts and feelings that have been on my head and heart, and you responded with such wonderful support. I want to thank you for that and let you know that things are okay around here. Not all better 100% positive happiness...but they're okay. And I'm okay with that.
I talked about the verse Exodus 14:14, and since then I've created a pattern with the words that I keep close:
The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.
When life overwhelms me (because it does sometimes!), knowing that God is taking care of things is the best reason and best way to stay calm. To quote the song, this is a blessed assurance.
If you're an embroiderer, you know that stitching can also have a calming effect, so pairing this scripture with embroidery is quite perfect I think. When I drew this pattern up, I decided to split it into two designs that work together. Use them together. Use them separately. It's up to you.
I hope that stitching these words brings some peace into your life. It's something we all need more of.
