Thank God for........GOD !

Oh, I just had the best night at Church, I'm fairly busting with energy !

There were only two 3 year-old boys in the class tonight, but I had such fun with them.....oh, their imaginations are just limitless !
Imagine trying to fit in the story of the Three Kings' journey, mixed in with an alligator brought along to eat the baby Jesus ! UH-Hmmmmm.......had to straighten that one out a little bit ! What fun ! I pray that the Lord is using me to plant a seed in these little hearts that'll bring about wonderful loving fruit one day !

Speaking of loving fruit, my dear cousin, Janet, you know I mean you !........my cousin sent me new (old) photographs of my mom and grandmother.......such a treasure to me. I added a couple of the photos to my sidebar, and made copies of all of them today to share with my brothers that live here.
She's even graciously offered to share with me some knitting needles that my grandmother used............I can't even convey what THAT means to me ! I can remember her sitting in our backyard when she would come from Canada for a visit, knitting or crocheting little things while she watched us play around her. Surely my love of the handmade originated with her quiet patience.

You know.....today has been a most wonderful day.......they're warning us of an impending snowstorm, so I stocked up on groceries, bought the hubster a little pizza for lunch, had a nice visit with a couple of neices, and made a nice, big pot of chili and some cornbread muffins. After the fun night with the 3 yr. olds, I am truly feeling God's favor, right here, right now..........and I'm sending prayers up, right this minute for anyone reading this post........his peace will be on and in you, right now and through this night.

All my love........


  1. your joy comes through in this post!!! what a gift to be able to use your grandmothers knitting needles.

  2. Well, well...you simply must come visit my little corner of the world and bring your Son/sunshine with you!

    We're expecting the same snowstorm...I think all of the eastern US is...so glad you stocked up and it sounds like you're ready! Hoping tomorrow's school is cancelled, since our oldest would be driving in this!

    I love your pictures. What sweet treasures to have of those we love, until we see them again.
    Your mom looks like an angel!

    I have some things that were my grandmother's, and my mom's when she was a baby/little girl. More treasures to cherish!

    Hope this day is blessed!

  3. Lovely! What treasures! the photos and knitting needles. I think these are things the Lord had others saved up for you until this time when you are ready to be blessed by them! More in an e-mail :)

  4. So excited for you I love getting old pictures and know how you will cherish those knitting needles. I remember when Isaiah was prolly 4, after church right before Christmas, he wanted to tell me what he had been learning...it had Jesus behind army vehicles and people trying to shot at him and a bunch of other odd things...I really have no idea how he got to point A to Z 'cause I know the church wouldn't have even suggested that lol...I had to work with him for awhile on that one..

  5. You are very sweet, Dolly. And finding you is a treasure to me:) It's funny, we lived in different places, but share very similar memories of grandma.
    I was out this morning stocking up for this storm too, and now I'm making a big pot of soup. I cut my finger chopping veggies, so am putting off working on my quilt for now. The snow looks so pretty coming down, I'm glad I can enjoy it without having to go out and drive in it.


Thanks for stopping by !
