" 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

A short post and a link to a yummy giveaway !

Today, I decided to walk to the middle of town to pay the electric bill.  I have become way too sedentary since I started driving again, so usually I go overboard trying to make up for it all at one shot !  True this time too !   I started out well and pretty brisk, but by the time I walked up the steps to my front deck, I was taking those steps    ONE     AT     A     TIME    .
But, you know what.......I'm rested now, and so glad that I did it !   Now I can be lazy for another week or so, don't you think?

Another one of my great nieces turned 2 yesterday and I got to go and spend a couple of hours at her backyard, circus-themed birthday party.   So fun to get together with family like that !  And how beautiful Brooklyn and her sister, Maddox, are !  I wish I had taken my camera......Brooklyn's hair now hangs down her neck in ringlets, and Maddox is so beautiful.

Scrolling through my favorite blogs today, I found that "a Stitch & a Prayer" is celebrating her 200th post........this made me check my own number and I'm only on 79 or so since starting over..........and she's giving away 2 charm packs ! 

  My latest little quilt was so fun to do with the charm pack that I had, so I wanted to be sure and qualify for 3 chances at winning.   Therefore, I am fulfilling one of the qualifications right now........by giving you all the opportunity at beating me to the prize !  Click on the second link, check out the goodies, and sign up for your chance !   If you have some extra time, check out some of her earlier posts........her faith is encouraging and uplifting........and the LORD has blessed her with some craftin' capability !
I'm headin' back there right now !

    On walking, I'm thankful for your spirit that lets you laugh at needing to rest. I'm thankful for your heart so large that it reaches out to strangers.
