“I have given skill to all the skillful, so that they may make all that I have commanded you. “ Exodus 31:6
“O Thou who art the all pervading glory of the world, we bless Thee for the power of beauty to gladden our hearts.
We praise Thee that even the least of us may feel a thrill of the creative joy when we give form and substance to our thoughts and, beholding our handiwork, find it good and fair. “.

We're doing fine, enjoying working in the yard together as usual, and have eaten the first couple of cucumbers from our little garden. The okra has babies showing on many of the plants, and we added another row. The squash have looked like they weren't going to make it, but this week we have a few little starts of squash fruit, so we're hopeful that we'll soon harvest those for our table. The tomatoes are EXCEEDINGLY hesitant, too. We lifted almost every plant in the garden, and worked composted manure into it, so maybe things will come along well now.
I'm going to try to find me some books to read before I go home, so I'll move along now. No sewing going on, still, but I am knitting a pair of socks, SLOWLY.
Love to you all, in Jesus's precious name !
