" 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

EDITED -- Tuesday is "APRON (making) DAY"

This week I found an interesting African-inspired print in my drawer of black fabrics........quite an eye-catching apron this made, don't you think ! ? !

This one used what little bit I had left of the tea-bag fabric.......remember it, Jodie?  We used it on the quilts that Kelley made for the soldiers for Christmas of 2005.
On the gardening front, my Oklahoma Marigolds have finally come into their own this year.  There are Gold, Orange, and Red/Orange.  I save the seed from them every year and it's nice to look at them here, and know that they came from my Oklahoma yard. 
I got in on a nice pricing-accident at WalMart the other evening. 
They had these Mandevillas priced at $4.00 when they are usually $10.00.  The man said that the sign was for the hanging baskets, but I saw that the sign was nestled right in the middle of these pots.  The other day one had blown off of the display into the parking lot, and I returned it to it's place, longingly wishing that I could afford one.  

A little piece had broken off, so I took it and tried to root it in water (I think it's working).  The LORD decided to favor me with a misplaced price sign, and the young man said that he was anxious to get rid of some inventory, so he let me have my TWO for $4.00 each ! 
So here's a shot of my little front deck.  The LORD is blessing us everyday as we settle a little more firmly into our temporary home.
Here is the stack of six aprons for Wednesday's visit.
And check out my cousin !   She made an AWESOME apron of her OWN design this past weekend !
Don't we look alike a bit?
