A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Rag quilt from my sister

This quilt was made by my sister, Trudy for my birthday. She sent it to her daughter, Michelle. When we were on vacation, Michelle gave it to me. I love it !!! It is like getting a (((HUG))) from her !

Here it is again...Just had to share it with you. I love handmade gifts.
.....and since Thanksgiving is just around the corner this is one of my favorite verses on thankfulness:
1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

I have to admit, I don't always do so good in the area of being thankful for everything.
I do know, it is God's will for me to be thankful for everything. I have to work on this, I think we all do. We are busy here, and yes, surgery is right around the corner. I am nervous. Not sure when I will check in.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving...

"Knowing what is TRUE
is the first step to knowing
what is FALSE"
John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
I am sorry that I have been so absent from
blogland. I have surgery scheduled the first
week in December. It is torn tendons in my right shoulder
rotator cuff and some repairs. I am trying to get my Christmas shopping done
my house decorated etc.....
I found this out last week, when we returned from vacation.
I will try harder, but no real promises.

Thanksgiving Freebie

Here is another FREEBIE from Bird Brain Designs. You can go here to print off the design.
I think it is wonderful that this company provides Free designs. The beauty of embroidery is you can make the colors you want, leave off what you don't want ie: the words, etc....stitch it on anything....I think it is a hobby that is "coming back", or at least I hope so.

Hobby Lobby and thoughts

Can you see the last lines on this sign ? I took this picture when I was on vacation. We don't have Hobby Lobby where I live.
Now.....I am thinking "what if"...what if, other stores did this ? Would it be possible for more people to go to church ? Would they ? The ramifications of businesses closing on Sundays is a bit overwhelming when I think about it. I have to applaud Hobby Lobby for doing this. As a Christian I am glad that my husband doesn't work on Sundays. I know some "have to" ie: police, fireman, health care etc.....but hmmmm....does everyone else have to?.....yet....aren't we all the reason or part of the reason they do ? We shop on Sundays, we go to restaurants on Sundays. I don't know if this will change any of our family's habits but it sure caught my eye and made me "think"...What do you think ?
