Advent basket idea.....Burden Bear

Post by pstarkoski on Tue Jan 27, 2009 4:59 am

This is a really cute idea.
Just cut out a piece of quilted fabric or I used fleece because I had it....Add the poem and the little flocked bear.

I'm not a very fancy bear.
I'm plain and rather small.
Even so, someone who likes you
Said that I should come to call.
Hide me underneath your pillow
Or set me on a nearby shelf,
And when you get discouraged
I will do my best to help.
I brought my favorite blanket
That I snuggle when I'm sad.
It's a present from my granny,
Made for days when things seem bad.
My granny always told me,
"Life is like a patchwork quilt,
just give Jesus all the pieces
and he'll make a pretty quilt."
Sometimes I don't see the pattern
Sometimes He seems far away,
then I clutch my favorite blanket
And I pray...and pray...and pray
Though I don't have all the answers
(for I'm just a "Burden Bear")
I've been sent here on a mission
From someone who really cares.
When you see me, please remember
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Here is the finished picture of the one I made:
