I'm getting ready to go in to work in a couple of hours, but wanted to take a few minutes to catch up here.
I accomplished quite a bit on my day off yesterday. I had two little quilts that I was trying to finish for a brother and sister up the street from me. They are being raised by their great grandmother, Rose (I've mentioned her MANY times), and have become my 'surrogate' grandkids, supplying me with much needed hugs and lovin'.
Kelley sent a package FULL of gifts, and because she got a new phone with FACETIME, we're planning on opening gifts together on Christmas morning.
As far as work goes, I got my new schedule for the first week of the new year. I asked them to take me down from 33 hours per week to 27 or so. Well,.......they went down to 21 ! So that means that I'll only be working 3 days per week that week. We'll have to see if it stays that way for consecutive weeks , but I'm looking forward to the time.
In the meantime, I want to wish a joyous, blessed Christmas to all of my blogging friends, and hope that 2018 holds wonderful things in store for each of you.
" 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
