" 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

Quilting and Construction........

........both were on today's schedule, but, blessedly, I didn't have to do the construction !

Lottie helped me as I got alot of the in-the-ditch quilting done on Seth's quilt.  I don't know that I'll do anything else in the interior of the quilt, as this is the heaviest cotton batting I have ever dealt with.  I mean, this quilt is for a 3 YEAR OLD.   Hey, maybe that's a good thing.........cuz once that baby gets under this thing, he ain't gettin' up for nuthin' !   No more running back and forth to sissy's room for an hour !  Ha !  Kelley tells me that that is the normal nightly routine.......an hour of back and forth, leading to morning sleepyheads !

But while I was quilting today, a construction crew from the local Mennonite community was building a roof over my front porch/deck.  I'm so thrilled.  I couldn't afford to get all the finishing work with siding/soffets, so-forth, but it'll be great for now.  And God just sent us a little rain-shower.......well after they've finished construction........to show me how well the new roof will protect the front door, and even let us sit out and enjoy the rain sometimes.   Thank the Lord,  he is so GOOD !

Someday, I'll have to do a  little painting, I fear, but for now, I'm just going to enjoy the newness !


  1. Both the quilt and Lottie are gorgeous! You will really enjoy the porch covering.

  2. Hello, I have had you on my mind this afternoon. Just wanted to check in and wish you a restful night and a good week. Hugs to Miss Lottie!

  3. I like the porch! I think you will really enjoy it year round! Can't wait to see the finished quilting, too.


Thanks for stopping by !
