 Saturday's Song:  Not For a Moment

These lyrics are so very true!  Even when we don't feel God's comfort and nearness, He is with us!  In fact, He goes before us - before that trial even started, He was there!

Tuesday's Thoughts. To Do Tuesday. Quilting: Geckos and a New Method. I Like

Tuesday's Thoughts 

A friend and I were discussing enemies and how this word applies to our lives.  Webster defines enemy as "one that is antagonistic to another".  

My friend stated that ,to her, "enemies" are also her own character flaws that separate her from God.  When she sees "enemies" in the Word, she will frequently replace it with whatever is causing her to stumble.

Saturday's Song: Only Jesus. Slow Stitching: Binding and Prayer Shawls. Stash Report. Book Date.

Hello There,

Happy Easter!  The tomb is empty!  

He is risen indeed!  

Praise God!

How I've missed you all!  Unexpected events popped up which took over our lives for a bit.  Now, thankfully,  everyone is fine and we are all adjusting to a new normal.

One of our adjustments is a low-fat diet - which I'm loving!  Full disclosure:  I do treat myself to the occasional donut from Krispy Kreme when I visit my parents!

Another change is that I have dived a bit more into  scrapbooking planning with the Happy Planners.  It's been fun sharing memories as well as recording new events with my family.  I'm also enjoying playing with paper and stickers.  You can see the fun I'm having on my Instagram account!

Yet another change my leap into a new computer using Windows 10.  Yikes!  I'm learning from the best - my hubby.  Thankfully, he can answer many of my questions!

On more change is two new additions to my sewing room:  a Bernina 790 and Bernina 480!  

The learning curve, I had a 350, is not too bad, more oblique than vertical.  Our local quilt shop, Be Sew Creative, offers not only mastery classes for their machines, but also sewing and embroidery classes - all via Zoom!  Another source of support for me is my daughter who has a Bernina 880 and is a fabulous teacher!  

I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you and rejoining Bloglandia!

Without further ado, let's roll!

Saturday's Song:  Only Jesus

Like many of you, we've lost loved ones and friends to COVID, cancer and tragic circumstances.  I heard this song and thought how true these lyrics are:

And I, I've only got one life to live
I'll let very second point to Him
Only Jesus
And I,
I don't want to leave a legacy
I don't care if they remember me,
Only Jesus
How true.  Many times, we wonder, "Who will I leave my home to?  Who will I leave my jewelry to?" 
It doesn't matter, really it doesn't.  
Let's leave a legacy of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Friend.  
Isn't that all that really matters?

Monday's Strength: Psalms 14. Scrappy Love. Book Date.

 Monday's Strength:  Psalms 14

In Psalm 14, much focus is on the situation of the people.  I decided to focus on God's actions instead.  It appears that David feels surrounded by an evil, sin-filled environment.  However, I believe God remains hopeful as He is seeking those who understand Him, who seek Him.  
Are you feeling overwhelmed with dread?  It's quite understandable if you are.

Wednesday's Word: Psalm 13. Wednesday's Wrap Up. I Like Thursdays.

 Wednesday's Word: Psalm 13

Isn't life interesting?  There are highs and lows, hills and valleys, joy and pain.
David begins Psalm 13 with feelings of abandonment and defeat, 
but ended with rejoicing and praise.  What changed David's heart and attitude?  How did he go from defeat to victory?
