" 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

Long day today......

......had to drive to Nashville, but hubby finally saw surgeon about closing off opening from peg tube in stomach.  Surgery is scheduled for next Thursday, so that will be another trying time, but God is watching over all our needs, and blessing our days.

I got two edges of the Blushing quilt bound.  I always have so many leftover strips or pieces when I make a quilt.........I ALWAYS cut much more than I need..........but this time I was wise.  At first, I put the leftovers in the storage box as usual.  But then when I needed more width on the quilt, I went back and pieced lengths of strips together to make borders for the two sides.  And now, when I needed binding fabric, I once again pieced together lengths of the leftovers.........lights for the top and bottom, because those two edges were white background fabric; and next, Lord willing, I'll piece together the colorful prints for the side binding pieces.   And, I REALLY like how that's looking so far  !   Photos soon, hopefully.

Tired now.......going to bed soon.  I awakened at 4:30 a.m. in anticipation of my drive today, and we had school bus traffic/slowdowns in both directions.   So glad to be home !


  1. I hope all will go well with the upcoming surgery. I will pray for you both....

  2. Keeping you and your husband in my prayers.


Thanks for stopping by !
