I'm making an appearance to let friends know that I'm doing fine. Still no news on the court situation, and I guess that's why I'm not inspired to do much sewing.
We had an unexpected trip (well, I guess they ALL are) to the emergency room today. Hubby was cleaning a pocket-knife, and cut his fingers badly when he tried to close the blade while holding the knife in his weaker hand. There was so much blood that I couldn't tell how deeply he was cut, and when the nurse cleaned it up, there was a wedge missing from the middle fingerpad, and the ring finger was slit all the way around to the fingernail ! (I'll spare you the photo that I sent to our daughter.)
The doctor actually had me hold the fingers while he stitched them up. He wanted to know if the sight of such a cut made me queasy. I said "no, I'm a seamstress, and I just find this fascinating to watch you use this curved needle and tie off these stitches !" Hubby is doing fine tonight, and I think he's glad that I won't have an excuse to 'nag' him to use his weaker hand for a couple of weeks.
" 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
