Yarn Heaven

I went to Ash Wednesday services yesterday. (Hang in there—I promise this really is fiber-related.)

And something in the gospel leaped out at me. The minister read:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume. . . but store for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes. . .”

But my yarn-centric brain heard—“There are NO MOTHS in heaven! “

I’m so taking my yarn stash with me!

Given the size of my stash, the slowness of my knitting and my distractions here on earth, it’s only in the hereafter that I might actually get some knitting done.

And I won’t have to worry about moths! Now that’s truly heaven.

Where do moths go when they die? ;-)

THANKS for the chuckle, Mary. Good one. I've always hoped there would needlework in heaven.

You are beyond hilarious. I have heard that verse a million times and never thought of my yarn. LOL

Hey, maybe then we can hang out and knit!!!

Love it! Are moths inherently evil? Do they wind up in the other place when they die?

ROTFL!!! Amen to that!
