Jesus Asked It #11. I Like...San Diego! $7.50 Blocks!

Jesus Asked It #11
Jesus Asked Series: 1,  2, 3, 4, 56789, 10
As you may recall this series started when my Pastor mentioned this in church:  If you really want to get to know Jesus, look at the questions He asked.  Let's continue on our journey.  

How often I have been guilty of this very action!  
I guess I made the most progress at breaking this habit when I heard this in Al-Anon:  

Memes, Responsibility, and Back: Whenever you point
 the finger of blame
 at Someone
 notice the three fingers
 of responsibility pointing
 back towards you.
Dear one, it's a continual journey to improve ourselves, to live out God's Word, to become gentle with ourselves and others...progress not perfection...another Al-Anon slogan that impacted me.  It reminds me of Philippians 3:12.

Oh LORD, help us to focus on how we can better serve You by becoming the best women and men of God that we can be!

I Liked Loved Our Trip to San Diego!
What is amazing is that Daddy could go on vacation - and was well enough to enjoy it!  He hit many of his Bucket List dreams - and we (my sister, my brother-in-law, Daddy and myself) were blessed to be part of the dream with him!  He is weaker since his diagnosis, but his spirit and mind are willing!  Praise God!
Here's a few photos of the beauty we all enjoyed!
Mission Basilica at San Juan Capistrano

 The gardens were peaceful and filled with God's love.  I was reminded of our time in Okinawa.

 Even a nearby Starbucks was pretty!

Gotta love the ocean view!
 The view from our balcony....
such a beautiful place to lovingly crochet gifts...sigh.....
 I liked this hanging in our condo....
 My little sister staged this photo in a flash...such talent...such unity....we have the same feet!  :)

$7.50 Blocks
I've made some progress on my $7.50 blocks (updated to include link).  I'm only a month behind!  Yea!

  1. ah, the beauty of that trip, flowers, sisters, fathers. So nice. thanks for joining us. Love the foot photo, yes you share the same shape foot! LeeAnna

  2. Your blocks are gorgeous. And the quotes, all right on. I like the one about the 3 fingers pointing back at me should I point a finger at someone, which I do my best not to do. Thanks for sharing the photos the mission. I've often wondered what that looked like. In 4th grade, we studied the California missions and San Juan Capistrano was my project. Funny how I retain that fact all these many decades. lol

  3. Although I use the KJV, that same verse has been a favorite since I was a high school senior and wrote an English paper on it. First, I got a B because my teacher didn't understand it. When I explained it to her, she changed my grade to an A. LOL It is really all about being responsible for ourselves and loving others. Thanks for the photos. Capistrano is as beautiful as ever. Love your blocks! I have to go figure out what the $7.50 Club is now. LOL

  4. I love San Diego, too - one of my most favorite places to visit! How wonderful that you were able to take your dad and that he could enjoy it, too!

  5. I love the photos you posted! So beautiful! Your quilt blocks look perfect! So pretty! I'm so glad I found your blog! Thanks for sharing!
