A Wimp No More! Part 1 Stash Report. Patrick's Strength

A Wimp No More! Part 1
Part 2 is here
I'm going to deviate a bit from our study on Philippians to share a testimony.  I have had a HUGE breakthrough in my walk with Christ!

There has been a situation in our lives that has been negatively affecting me - reducing me to tears,
weak prayers,
you know the drill. 


Yesterday as I reached out to friends for prayer, one of them called me.  Basically, she told me I needed to stand strong in my faith so that those involved would be strong as well.  Mind you, she said this with great tenderness and love.  

I put on some praise and worship music and WOW!  The Holy Spirit fell on me and my home in a powerful way!  Prayers for the situation rushed out of my mouth in a loud, strong faith-filled voice!  

I prayed with authority, tears and victory!

Yesterday, I began a new, deeper journey with God!  I will no longer be a wimp for God!  He is raising me up to be a prayer warrior for my family.  I will fight for them on every side.  

May I encourage you today to pray boldly for your family and loved ones?  You might just be surprised!

Stash Report
If you read Maggie's Making A Lather blog post on Sundays, she presents her stash report in a simple, understandable manner.  I decided to give it a go.  Naturally, I'll be sharing my fabric and yarn stash!  We'll see how long it lasts!  ;P

Patrick's Strength
I've started yet another crochet project - It's an afghan for a young teenager that has been recently diagnosed with cancer. He is an only child and has a mass on his knee, rib and (I believe) his hip.  

So, I'm making him an afghan in his colors: red, blue and black.  It's called "Patrick's Strength".  
As God reminds you, 
would you please pray for him?

My goal is to crochet 9 - 10 rows a day to have it finished in 10 days.  We'll see!

Here is our humble beginning!
I'm using I Love This Yarn! in
Fire Red (270), Royal (80) and Black (30).
I'm using a ripple pattern with a 5-3 repeat.  
Vicky (you may have noticed her comments on some of my posts) mentioned a 7-3 repeat.  
After a bit of research, 
 l learned that 
there are many variations to ripples.

I went to my go to book, 
Encyclopedia of 300 Crochet Patterns, Stitches and Designs by Doris M. Smith.  
It's an oldie, but goodie!

  1. Love the idea of having a stash report! That is definitely something I'd like to start doing when I get back home! I'm so sorry to read about Patrick. I will definitely add him to my prayer list. Great work on your list last week! How exciting to see all those "Done" comments!!

    1. Thank you......I'm wondering how I could add a prayer list to my blog....somehow.....I envision a constantly updated list....like an online prayer journal....I don't know....it's a blurry thought.....

      I was excited to accomplish so much! The To Do Tuesday Link Up really helps me stay focused! Thank you so much for hosting!

  2. So glad for you in so many ways! Truly Abba Father is faithful! And wow! So much accomplished! Yes, prayers for Patrick and family now! Paying you will be able to complete this Afghan in the next 10 days as you desire.
