Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

Spring is ALMOST here !

I started this most beautiful, sunny day by finally washing my car, and vacuuming the carpets inside of it.  So thankful to be able to drive again these nearly-6 years  now, and having a good-running vehicle that is dependable.

I followed up that work with some raking of flowerbeds; lots of new growth was hiding beneath the leafy mulch.  The first of the Buttercups (Jonquils) are blooming,

 the Lilac bushes have buds, Seven Steps to Heaven has sprouted EVERYWHERE , and my Phlox have started.

I may have decided on some fabric to put together for a backing for one of the quilt tops that I pieced over the Winter, so that on another beautiful day like today was, I will be able to baste underneath the carport.  The wind did try to get up a bit today, and that is not a fun addition to a basting day outside !  I will watch for a warm morning that will allow atleast 3 hours for me to do the basting at a comfortable pace all by myself.....not a job that I cherish, but a necessary task.


  1. I'm trying to find a photo of Seven Steps to Heaven, I'm a northern gal and don't know what it is...but love the name! I am going out today to search for some signs of spring. Surely there are some here other than the lack of snow and the desire to drive a clean car?

    Happy basting!

  2. I don't know what Seven Steps to Heaven looks like myself so I am going to look it up. I can make out a face on the tree. We have a patch of yellow blooms to, they are a good sign.

  3. HI Dolly, Looks like spring has come to stay at your place.....not quite here yet. 30 degrees is a mite chilly. I haven't been blogging for a while and picked today to get a little caught up. I've been browsing dvds of My Three Sons for season two. I enjoy those so much. William Frawley had two great hits in tv....this one and Lucy. I never even liked him really.....not being at all handsome...haha. But he's perfect in My Three Sons. Have a super-nice day...if you can. Maggie Ann =)

  4. Spring is such a welcoming time; how I love the return of longer, warmer days! Daffodils are such a happy flower, I am certainly enjoying them here too! Enjoy your week~
