Saturday's Songs. Slow Stitching. Stash Report.

Saturday Song
Tonight I feel led to share two songs.  The first one was playing as I sat down to write this post tonight, the second I came to me late this week.  

This first song is for the person who is estranged from their parents or perhaps from God.  You are precious and loved.  Again:  You are precious and loved.  

Consider calling home.
Consider reaching out to God.
You, my dear, are loved.
Reach out and receive your love.  
It will take courage.
It will take trusting God.
But do it.
Reach out.
You are precious and loved.

I've shared this second song before, but it's time to share it again.  
Sometimes life knocks the air out of us.  
Sometimes life is too painful for words.    
But God still sits on the throne!  We can trust Him and watch His will unfold.

Today our sermon was on "Dreams Delayed".  (The audio file is available.)  Has your dream taken a hit?  Remember this:

God bless you, my dear reader!

Slow Stitching
Guess what!  I've finished 8/25 pieces of the Felt Advent Calendar!  Yea!

    The advent calendar is so cute. It is amazing with all the nice Prayer Shawls you crochet.

  3. I love your felt ornaments, a third of the way, I'm looking forward to seeing them all.

    1. I have so enjoyed learning and working on them! I lost about 3 months to trying to stitch them with invisible thread, but hopefully they will be ready in time! Thank you for stopping by and visiting!

  4. The felt Advent pieces are cute, and the prayer shawl bright and cheerful. Love the Silver fox yarn you bought. Happy Stitching

    1. Thank you! I'm wondering what I'll do with a mere 3.5 ounces of yarn, but I'm sure I'll find something! Thank you for stopping by and visiting!

  5. Wow! The Advent pieces are darling. You are quite talented!

    1. Thank you, Kim! I am enjoying the process of making them! Next year I'll be trying out a Nativity scene with "softies" that the kids can play with! Thank you for stopping by!
