Jesus Asked It #4. Fall Into a QAL Block 2. Book Date. Ooops!

Jesus Asked It #4

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?  Matthew 6:27 I was a professional worry wart - had my 
PhD in this skill - still do.  
Worrying is like running on the hamster's wheel...

So much wasted energy and I bet we look pretty silly to our LORD and Savior.  

It's hard to break the worrying habit.  One activity that works for me is listening to praise and worship music.  My altar, Promise Box and spending time daily with God are vital to my faith.  

I'm curious about how you are able to conquer worrying.  

Fall Into a QAL Block 2!
Here is my second block for the Fall Into a QAL!  I had to remake the woven basket part because I lined up all the green rectangles on the bottom and the  dark orange ones on the top.  Silly me!  Piecing is certainly teaching me to be more detail oriented! 
Even with my error, I'm still having so much fun with this QAL!

Dreams of Falling
Karen White has grabbed my attention by one question:  Why was the Mom at the house where she was injured?  

I finding many lessons in Don't Throw in the Towel, Hope Again 
by Jana Alcorn.  I'm taking my time reading and digesting the words of comfort Ms. Alcorn offers.

The Glass Lake
The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy, one of my favorite authors is a great audio book!  
                A Quilt for Christmas
A Quilt for Christmas by Sandra Dallas was the perfect combination of history and quilting.  A great read!

You can see the list of books I've read over at Goodreads!  My user name is, of course, Miaismine!

Well, I knew it would happen eventually - I accidentally deleted #4 in our series.  Aw well.....
I feel bad.  I'm sure this isn't the first time this has happened to a blogger.  In fact I bet I'm in good company!  :)

  1. Hi! Visiting your blog after you left a comment on mine - thanks! I love that passage from Matthew, and am thankful that I am not really wired to worry much. When I do worry, I am a hot mess! Sandra Dallas is one of my favorites, but I haven't read A Quilt for Christmas yet. I get most of my books through, and it's been on my wish list there for some time now. Hopefully it will come available soon. Now that I've been working on my quilter's ADD, maybe I could do a QAL and stick with it. Looks like you are having fun with yours!

    1. Hello There! I'm glad you popped over! I get a lot of books from paperbackswap as well! I listed to A Quilt For Christmas on my local library's app. I'm sure you'll enjoy it! I am having fun with mine - and hoping I stick with it! :)

  2. It's just too easy to worry! I am very skilled, right with you. In fact, your verses, like today's are wonderful reminders that I need, often ♡

    1. Hi There Amy! I hope you and your family are doing well! Thank you for stopping by! :)

  3. LOVE the cover of "A Quilt for Christmas"!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog :-)

  4. I've memorized most of Matthew 6 because I tend to worry. :) I like having the verses in my mind to pull out at just the times I need them. I can relate to the hamster. Thanks for sharing what you're reading!

    1. Wow! That is a fabulous way to "change channels" and focus on our LORD! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing!

  5. Thank you for your inspiration and link to the Show and Tell Monday !! Bambi

  6. We don`t need to be worry, but we forget God`s promises again and again, and we are silly like the hamster. Listening to praise and worship songs works for me too.
    Lovely quilt block! :-)

    1. Thank you, Birthe! I still remember how I enjoyed the beautiful song you sent me!
