Just one today.....
I got a letter from my brother, Richard, today. He's the only brother that I haven't actually seen since returning here after my 32 year absence. We've been writing to each other, as he doesn't drive, and hardly uses their cell-phone. Today when I opened his letter, I found that he had enclosed a photo of himself that had been taken at Thanksgiving. I was so excited to see what he looks like after all these years. I've GOT to make plans to visit him soon........he's only about an hour and a half away, I think. He helps his wife make quilts every summer, when she's not teaching school !
I also spoke to the lady for whom I'm making the latest baby quilt. She was really excited to hear that it's nearly finished. She was wishing the baby to hurry, and I told her, "NO, no ! The baby can take his time......the quilt WILL WAIT !"
" 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
