Praise !

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
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

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.
