Saturday's Song. Still Stitching #4. Stash Report. Slow Stitching.

Happy Easter!
This is the day 
that the LORD hath made; 
we will rejoice 
and be glad in it!  
Psalm 118:24 KJV  
Happy Easter!  
Let us rejoice!

Saturday's Song
My week started with brokenness, tears and a sacrifice of praise.  So this was the song I chose:

Then, as I continued praising through tears this was my song:


Hope was building!  Yup...the pain was still there, but so was God - and as a dear friend once said, "God is bigger than the boogy man!"

By the time I heard this song, I was dancing through my pain into joy! 


Try a sacrifice of praise and see how God will move!  Remember:

I realize I am sharing some of the same Scriptures, points, and songs repeatedly.  Sometimes, we have to be frequently exposed to an idea for it to saturate our hearts.  

Still Stitching #4
Still Stitching #3
I do believe that Psalm 30:5b will be added to my #1yearofstitches.
Last time we ended with a new tip I learned from someone who briefly attended our Al-Anon meeting.  It was:


Another tough hitting, but excellent point that hit me like a ton of bricks, and then more gently.  Far be it for me to get between my loved one and God!  I recalled the Scripture:
I have been working on this for a long time as you can see from this post which is part of a 4 part series.  
It’s a process.  

Progress, 
not perfection 
is the goal.

I never want to be between anyone and God, so I had to get out of the way.  Painful as it was, I had to detach with love.  We all have to allow others to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling – as we do the same.

Slow Stitching
My son-in-law, bless his heart, and my grandkids helped me finish some Comfort Dolls!  I took them to my Cancer Care Meeting and they were recieved with love.  I did forget to take pictures, but but here are the ones left with a few new additions. The dolls were hand-stitched shut and their skirts gathered nicely with embroidery thread.

  4. Great to see the things you're using in a good cause. I had to detach, too, and it's very painful. The Lord has blessed me with peace. I hope you, too.
