The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
Adding in those words - with your spirit - to me means to embody, envelope our very being with Jesus' grace.
Grace as defined by Webster's:
Father, I pray, that as we conclude this study of Philippians that every being, every precious reader may accept and receive Your unmerited divine assistance , the virtue of grace and knowledge that they are loved and forgiven as they accept Your gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ, as their Savior. Furthermore, I thank You for Your graceful guidance as I wrote this study.
You have grown my faith beyond measure.
You have lead me through the valley of the shadow of death.
You have proved Yourself faithful, even when I have failed You.
You have used this study to bless others.
My gratitude overwhelms me.
May You accept my praise and thankfulness as a sweet, sweet sound to Your ear.
Amen and amen.
As we go forward with the new Bible study, Still Stitching, I ask for your prayers. We will be addressing the issue of having loved ones with life controlling issues such as alcoholism, addiction and other life issues.
As I discussed this new direction with a friend, she said, "Oh, Still Stitching!" As you can see here, it is the perfect title. Thank you, Friend - you know who you are.
A Finished Baby Quilt
This quilt is done! Ok. Maybe not. It needs a label. But other than that - it's done! I followed Allison's tutorial on her blog, Woodberry Way, and wala! Easy peasy! She called it a 1-Hour Quilt Top (Using the "Scrappy Trip Piecing Method) and I loved it!
It was so easy - even for me!
