A very hard concept. It happens everyday. Maybe sometimes more than once a day.

There are many places of rejection – work, school, family, friends, clubs, groups, etc.
There are many types of rejection – you're not good enough, you're not funny enough, you're not serious enough, you're not pretty enough...

You're not enough....

If you're wondering why I'm posting this, it's because I was rejected today. Now, you must realize it really wasn't that big a thing and countless people are rejected for much bigger reasons. I wanted to join a certain group. Today, I got my “rejection notice”. There was no explanation. It was a form letter – or in this case, a form email. So, I considered why I was rejected. They haven't seen me so it wasn't because of what I look like...they did know how old I was so maybe I wasn't young enough. Maybe they didn't like the fact that I'm politically incorrect - the name of my blog ;-).  If you quilt, you've heard of the quilt police.  Substitute any craft and add police.  Substitute anything and add police.

Whatever the reason I was rejected.

No, it's not a serious rejection but it got me to thinking about rejection in general – and specifically.

We'll never be good enough Christians...but what's truly wonderful is that we don't have to be. Christ was rejected. He continues to be rejected. He will be rejected until He returns. But, He doesn't reject us when we come to Him.

And we're not the Jesus police, people. That's not our job.

So, no matter if a certain church has rejected you because of _________(fill in the blank), remember Christ loves you and will not reject you. If someone has rejected you because you're not ________ enough (fill in the blank again), Jesus won't. It's that simple.

Jesus is enough (cue BarlowGirl here)....and so are we.

Here are pictures of the fabric I promised yesterday - my apologies for being late with these...
These four fat quarters are $1 only one per color.
 These four are also $1 each but there are two per color.
 These fat quarters are $.75 - a bit less in quality that the first two pictures.

This is a container 9"x7"x6" full of these - part of a ufo ;-)  I'm asking $2.50 (does not include container)
 This container (same size as above) is full of 2"x 2" squares - $2 - does not include container.
 This is a box of Christmas fabric and Christmas panels - $10 for all.
I do have more fabric - in fact, a lot more.  Too much to picture.  So, I will be selling the fabric by the pound in multiple colors $2 per pound.  I will try to select something that interests you if you have a preference.
Please remember that all monies from this goes to the Walk to End Altzheimer's except for postage if needed.
If you have any questions, please contact me at my email addy.  Those of you who attend church with me, I will gladly bring all of it to church so you can see it.
Thank you for considering helping us out.

I have added some patterns to the group of "quilty" things that I am selling to help raise money for our Walk to End Alzhiemer's.  All patterns with the exception of one are $3 plus postage.  The candle mat (Bareroots) is $3.50 because all of the wool is there to make it.

Again, if you have any questions, please let me know.
