It's been a good day. :-)
Look at what Shelley sent me:
She's fabulous with wool projects (check her out at http://www.redquilts.blogspot.com/) and as sweet a friend as there is. Keep her in your prayers! Her husband David is dealing with some health stuff, and they need "grace for the hour," as the old saying goes.
Grace abounds around here!! Missing Sam daily is new, very hard stuff. But I make my way to my porch....
Still more grace in the mail...
Two more heart blocks, bringing the total to 24. Each of you will be hearing from me...I'm so grateful for the beauty and joy you are bringing to our home right now!
Jeff took me out for some "retail therapy" on the way to the in-laws on Friday. Some Whimsicals fat quarters are totally me! LOL
...and Tina Givens fats -- totally out of my comfort zone, not me at all! :-D, but I had a quilt in mind when I got them. AND I got 36 fat quarters for $39.99....Yeah, they were feeling VERY much like me by the time I got them home! LOL
I wanna make a quilt like Sarah made for the Hand-2-Help Challenge. Won't her quilt look good in my fabrics?
Um, Yeah! Love it!! :-D
So gobs and gobs of grace around here!!
And why not!? It's just like the Father, isn't it!?
18 Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you,
And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.
For the LORD is a God of justice;
How blessed are all those who long for Him.
19 O people in Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.
20 Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. 21 Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it" (Isaiah 30: 18-21 NASB)
Thank you, Lord, for Your grace (especially today as shown by others to us!)!
