Monday's Strength. Morning Glory Blocks 10-11. Book Date.

Monday's Strength
This morning I needed a word from the LORD, His guidance.  So I reached into my Scripture box and: Wow.  He made His will very clear to me, confirming what He has been telling me all week.  

Do we go forth when He calls us to unknown, seemingly scary places or do hesitate?  To be honest, I'm hesitating.  He is patient, though.  He will continue to prepare me for this journey into the unknown.  He'll do the same for you my friend.

Morning Glory Blocks 10-11
My Morning Glory quilt by Kate Spain  continues to take shape with 11/16 blocks now finished!  I'm pretty sure I reversed the colors on this block, but it still came out pretty!

I'll be visiting Dad and Mom for an overnight visit, but I'm hoping to finish two more blocks this week!

Book Date
If you recall, reading, one of my favorite pre-cancer past times, was so very difficult during and after chemotherapy.  But, my tenacity has paid off!  
I'm so excited to share that, after almost four years of trying, I can finally read for enjoyment vs. trying to retrain my brain to read!

  2. So happy to hear reading is now back for you, chemotherapy robs of so much. But if it works then its worth it. I have just given a Cathy Lamb book to my sister to read so hope she has liked it. Ocean of Delusions sounds like a difficult read.

  6. I have read & enjoyed your posts for years. I had an accident that left both index fingers a mess over 3 years ago, so I sew no more, But... I still enjoy Every single one of your posts. You are a wonderful witness & inspiration. Blessings to you & your Family <3

  7. Now it was a while since the last time I visited your blog, but I have looked back a little. So many beautiful blocks, and you're well over halfway with "Morning Glory Blocks". Nice to read everything you share from the Bible as well. Thank you!
