Let's see if I can update this blog just a bit.
This plant that I couldn't identify last Spring turned out to be some Canterbury Bells that I had planted from seed and forgotten about.
I'd never grown them before (or seen them grown by anyone else) so I didn't recognize them. Many a morning I was tempted to pull the plant, thinking that it must be a big weed. But patience prevailed, praise God, and here's the sight with which I was eventually rewarded !
I pieced a little baby-sized quilt top yesterday from flannel squares that my sister brought me from California last month (what a wonderful visit we had !) I hope to be able to finish it and give it to a young woman at our Church who is expecting a little boy !
Love to all you guys !
" 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
