" 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

Anticipation !

Spring can't be too far away........to my wonderful surprise, the first Crocus, in fact, the first blooms of 2014, were proudly lifting their heads yesterday afternoon in my front yard !   Just the day before there was nothing in that spot but a few of what looked like blades of grass, then, VOILA !  Beautiful blooms of brilliant purple against the dry brown  grass just made my day !

Buttercups, jonquils, Narcissus.......whatever they are, are also poking their stems and buds through the ground now too.

 In my flowerbeds, I couldn't resist the warm days, and I raked away a winter's worth of leaves.  I hope I don't regret it when we have the next few days of cold temperature's return !   I just couldn't resist seeing what was hiding below.

I've been hand-quilting, and I have almost completed the little baby quilt with the dandelion print.   Tomorrow is quilt-meeting day, and I think I will just drop by and show the finished brown quilt-top that I started last month, and this baby quilt, unbound.  Our feeding program starts earlier now, so I need to be able to get back home to feed hubby and myself before slipping away for an afternoon/evening's work.


  1. Such a hopeful post on warmer weather coming! We can see grass here now! LOL

    Don't forget lots of pictures for us to see these projects! Always love your hand quilting!

    Thankful for God's blessings!

  2. We have a few more weeks before we will see anything growing in the garden. I can not wait! Spring WILL come. =)

  3. Oh yes…I love the newest little blooms. I have a few bursting through too! We spent Saturday out in the warm beautiful day and trimmed the Rose of Sharon bushes. I look forward to spring but NOT hot hot days of summer!!
    I'm hand quilting at night too!!!


Thanks for stopping by !
