" 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

We finally got some rain !

Wow........we haven't had rain since back in August, I think, so we were REALLY, REALLY dry !

Yesterday afternoon we did get some, Praise the LORD, and of course, there was a little thunder (I love that sound now, after being so afraid of it as a child!)....
and a little hail, (twice in one afternoon--tiny balls), but no damage here. 

My driveway attempts to pretend that it is a river, but thanks to the new load of 'crush and run' that the landlord and wife spread on it, there's no problem there either.

I'm having to upload photos one at a time !

I delivered the purple shawl this morning....that went well.

I got my backing pieced for the cross quilt, and it looked very plain in the middle.  I know that the quilting will take care of that, but I wanted to add SOMETHING of interest back there anyway.  I just appreciate being able to GOOGLE things, don't you?   I got it into my mind that I wanted to applique the silhouette of a dove and, there you go........so many images to choose from at my fingertips.

I'm awaiting permission from the source before sharing the image with you.  I've already appliqued it onto the quilt back, so I hope I don't have to remove it !


  1. it's raining, thundering and lightening here too! we needed it a bunch!

    can't wait to see the picture!

  2. Wow! Look at that rain!! In regards to my crazily bad dog, she destroyed the knitting needles, and I have had to replace them, but alas, I think the knitting can be saved. For the pictures on my side bar, I just added them as standalone pictures, but didnt put any kind of header or description, so they showed up without any writing or lines between them! Hope that helps!


Thanks for stopping by !
