" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Yep, we got it !

Atleast 6 inches of snow here, and sleet balls have been coming down on top of that for atleast a couple of hours now.

But we're snug as two bugs here in our little nest, as long as the power stays on ! I haven't heard yet whether our daughter's flight is still on time, so we'll wait it out this evening hoping for word. We just got a call from Kelley, and they're staying overnight in Washington, D.C., waiting for OKC's airport to reopen and let flights in. Praise the LORD, they've reached the homeland safely !
Thank you for the many prayers on hers and her little family's behalves.

I didn't get alot of quilting done today.......not sure why, as I started fairly early. I did go outside to sweep the porch hourly or so, and I took the time to make that pot of bean soup today, so I guess that took its toll on my quilting progress.

Still, the quilting on this, even if tediously unending, is very SWEET....... which is to say that the fabric (muslin) is very soft, and the batting is a nice, thin polyester low-loft, so there's no painful push-and-squeak, as in some cotton battings and stiff fabrics.


  1. Dolly, your quilting is gorgeous!!!! You are so talented. It is a treat to see! How proud your family must be of you. I'm sorry I haven't been doing any blogging since the middle of the month. I hope to do better. I get so content with my husband home..retired, that I just spend the time with him. You said in a comment to me~~~~~....now, I've read at the end where it says that Job spoke truth and his friends did not, so I'm not sure about the argument our teacher made that the devil does the taking away? My thought was...in answer to that... the Lord gave the devil permission to test Job or he couldn't have touched him or his children.~~~end of the thought~~~=) I really like your blog colors and pattern....very lovely. Your soup sounds delicious. I made sausage and bean soup yesterday and it sure came in handy today. Its soup weather alright! Stay warm and cozy....=)

  2. this is a lot of snow...we got a little yesterday but not that much. sorry your daughter is delayed...the handwork on that quilt is really coming along. great job

  3. Glad to hear Kelley is in the US. The snow in your photos looks the same as here with lots of ice underneath! Hence...OKC airport is closed until tomorrow.
    Good job on the LOVELY quilting!

  4. Are they here yet? The fallen snow is beautiful and weather is calm. Most roads are passable. I expect flights have come in today (Sat).


Thanks for stopping by !
