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.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
