..........that is my most precious allotment! He is my portion, and my strength........and my JOY !
A little bit of fabric every now and then is good, too ! I found these triangles in a ziploc baggy today, and just stitched them onto some new white pillowcases, rawedges and all ! Aren't they fun and bright?
I fell today, coming up the back steps of my trailer porch, and thought that when I caught myself on my hand, that that would be the worst of it........just some bruising and a bit sore for a day or two. But then, quicker than you can think, BAM !, my face/mouth HIT THE PORCH just solid ON ! Wow, I've never in my life felt anything like that !
First thing I thought was, "oh, no, did I break my false teeth?" I banged and banged on the porch with the heel of my hand, for hubby to come. He finally heard me, and by the time he reached me, blood was just dripping all over the porch ! It hurt like nobody's business !
I got into the house and cleaned up my face and had two crescent shaped cuts on the upper lip, outside, and a cut on the inside of the upper lip. I thought about going to see if I needed stitches, but, number one, I don't know if they even do that here at the clinic, and number two, I thought that stitches would make the scar worse than it was going to be already (vanity, thy name is Dolly). So, I cleaned it and iced it and sat down before I thought I was going to pass out !
All is well, and the swelling is going down. Praise the LORD for his goodness and healing !
Back to quilting, I got a call from Aunt Edith before I left for Church tonight. She received the two quilts today and is DELIGHTED. She said that the baby quilt is just beautiful, and of the quilt that I made her, she said that she never expected me to make her anything so beautiful in her lifetime ! Can you imagine.......it was just a simple quilt, although made with lots of love. I'm just so happy to have a little piece of my work there in her home.......it somehow makes me feel so much closer to her. She said that the cover on her bed is a vanilla color, so the quilt matches her bedroom beautifully. She's going to give the baby quilt at the baby shower on Saturday and is sure that they'll treasure it. I am so thankful to the LORD for giving me the ability to work with my hands in some small way.
" 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
