" 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

Well, the mad rush to make the perfect gift is over for another year !

We had a very nice, quiet, WHITE Christmas. 
We got just the right amount of snow, praise the LORD !  

About an inch covered most of the grass, but left the roads clear for travel.  Hubby and I joined my brother Jeff and his family for Christmas day dinner, after spending a quiet morning with the window curtains open to watch the snow softly falling. 

Gifts under the tree were very generous, and we are appreciative to everyone who remembered us with greetings, or cards, or packages.  You are so dear !

As for decorating, we started out by cutting down a wee, little Cedar tree at the edge of our lot here, but after a week of inside heat, it was so brittle that it was a lethal weapon to be around.
So, out came the little 1 foot, stand-by, artificial tree that has served me well before.  We just adorned it with the few handmade, leather ornaments that hubby-dear made back around 1984, and a couple of others that couldn't be left off.

I must mention that Kelley, my daughter, took the hint and bought my Christmas gifts from my Etsy favorites that are displayed in my sidebar.  I got yummy new charm squares and triangles to play with, and my head is spinning trying to decide what I'll make !
Waiting for that inspiration to hit, I spent a few hours yesterday and today knitting Piper a new sweater.  I left the armholes plain, without picking up stitches for sleeves, as it seemed that they would just hinder the movement of her little bitty legs.  I see from the photo that the armholes look a little odd, so I may try to knit just a couple or so rows there.


  1. Love the new look and the picture of you is so happy! Wishing you and yours a blessed New Year full of love and growth!


  2. The dog sweater is adorable, and you look great!!!
