The Rutree Project

I love to Knit! I know, I know....it is a weird thing that proclaim my love for, but you know what: I have to admit it. I have been doing this for years: I learned how to crochet when I was in elementary school from this sweet lady, Mrs. Little who was like my grandma and lived across the street. We would crochet and talk and watch the Laurence Welk show (ha ha). Well, who knew that God could take some silly craft that I love to do and use it for Him.

I really wanted to do something in honor of Jay...something I could do to remember him. I just felt that God still had things that he wanted to do and I wanted to offer comfort to other's who were suffering. that is when the idea for the Rutree Project came to me: why not use this craft to make things for children and adults who need so much to know that they are loved by God and by somebody they might not even know.

and I have found joy that is really tough to explain. But here is what I will do: I will tell you the stories...show the blankets or the hats...and maybe the joy will spread. It is really awesome.

This picture is a expectant mother in Guatemala who is teacher in La Limonada....Notice the peach blanket!!! It just makes me so happy to know that all of those prayers are bringing joy and smiles. I will keep you posted!!!

OH, and if you knit or crochet or know some one who does, and would like to join what god is up to with the Rutree Project, please just let me know. It is such an amazing joy.
