Remember the story about David facing the giant, Goliath? He killed him with a step in faith and a stone. Are we facing giants today? We sure are! Fires. Floods. Pandemics. Illnesses. Strife. The list goes on and on.

Wednesday’s Word: Psalm 66:2
I loved this part of Lynn Austin’s Until We Reach Home! On the entire journey thus far, Ludwig constantly encourages Sofia with Bible verses. This time, however, he is discouraged beyond words and, though she tries, no verse she shows him breaks his despondency. But then, she remembers her precious Mama. Thank God for spiritual Mamas!

Monday’s Strength: Psalm 107:31-32
even in the face of rejection,
even in the face of fear,
even in the face of mistrust,
even in the face of anger.
His love is there, waiting to guide us to safe harbors.
Many times, after we have seen His wisdom, we praise Him for His unfailing love and we see His wonderful deeds for mankind.
Let us learn to exalt Him in the assembly of the people and praise Him in the council of the elders before we see proof of His mighty deeds, unfailing love and faithful guidance.
Brown Baby Quilt
When I first started the Qube Crush QAL, I thought I would make a baby quilt/table topper for each square. It was too ambitious of a goal for me, so I started making all four weekly squares at the end of the month. My goal is to make a finished quilt by the end of the QAL.
But, here is the first quilt I made with Block One of the Qube Crush. This is definitely not one of my favorite finishes.
I used some scraps I had on hand, but ran out of my original fabrics, so I pulled the lime green. I'm thinking of adding some yo-yos to the center in that same green......we'll see if I can fix it up...
It has been a fabulous sewing week, but lacking in reading time. How do you make time for reading and sewing?
I'm enjoying the The Library Book, but very curious how the author is going to tie everything up with the investigation. So far, there is a lot of information about libraries, their workings and historical information. Ms. Orlean offers her reflections on many topics, which I am finding quite interesting and enjoyable.
