" 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

Who is like our LORD?

My morning-coffee view.
He is just so wonderful to me !

I went back to the 4th grade class this evening,
 and was on my knees helping a
table full of boys put foam picture frames together. 

When I knelt there,
Andrew
(from "what are YOU doing in here, anyway?" fame)
recognized me and kind of sneered. 

 I said,
 "yep, I'm back Andrew and I love you."

  It was kindof loud around us and he said,
"what?" 

I said,
" I love you"
.......he said,
"what did you say?"
a little louder.

I quietly mouthed
"I------love-----you !"

He heard me that time,
 and I thought
"uh-oh, here comes the smart remark !"

Instead, he just gives me this little twitch of a smile
around the corner of his mouth,
 and goes back to working on his frame.

The rest of the evening was a piece of cake !  

Ah, this has been a wonderful week,
and I got my fix of 'missing grandkids' ! 

Now, back to quilting !
I've gotten to spend a few hours 
working on the baby quilt this week
 ....... here's what I've gotten done so far.

  2. Our God is good to us. VBS is a great way to get kids in to hear God's word, and it is neat that you could find the time to give.
    We just watched today the movie "A River Runs Through It", and the yelling/whispering trick was used in that movie, too. (I bet you knew that, huh?)
    *smiles* pokey
