" 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

I'm a little bit bummed.......

.......when I tried to start my computer this morning, it would not boot up.  After trying several things, I eventually had to use system recovery, thereby losing all the personal stuff I had saved on this computer over a 6-7 year period.    It seems that I've been hearing of this alot lately, just among the blogs that I read !
Charter internet had a man out working on the cables on top of the pole near our house this past weekend.........hubby suspects a conspiracy !!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL !

You'd think that I'd be most upset over photo loss, but I have sources to replace some of those, atleast the most familial ones.  I do hate losing the folder of inspiring quilt ideas.  I really do go back to it every now and then to choose one to finally do.     That's how my "Blushing Bloomers" came about.

But the most aggravating thing right now seems to be the loss of my photo editing program.  I had HP's Image Zone and it was WONDERFUL.  It let me correct lighting and other problems, crop, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, resize the photos for use on my blog and in emails !   I downloaded the newest version of ImageZone, but it no longer lets you resize !

BooHoo.......I'll keep looking and find something.

On a brighter note, though, I got a lovely card from JodieAnn today, blessing me for her quilt-top that I pieced, and telling me that she had knee surgery.   I'm thinking of you tonight, Jodie, and knowing that there'll be no stopping you now, with that bionic replacement !  Heal quickly, and be blessed........you are an angel on earth.

And congratulations to my persistent son-in-love, Tim, who finally got his promotion to staff sargeant !   Way to hang in there, Tim.  God bless you every moment !
Update:
Oh, now that I've resized THIS photo online, I'll share my basting of the Morning Star quilty.  I have finished machine-quilting it, but still need to get it bound.  I'll keep looking for a program that lets me do all in one, editing, resizing, cropping, etc.
