Works of God

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

What are you thanking God for this week? I’m excited that my nephew arrived safe and sound Sunday morning. He weighed 9 lb. 12 oz and his Momma had him completely natural. She’s a tiny thing so we’re calling her Superwoman. He’s super cute and James and I are itching to go see them. Hopefully […]

When the Roll is Called Up Yonder

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

I’m playing this song for offertory Sunday, so I thought I’d find a version to share with you. I think this choir did a beautiful job. When the trumpet Of the Lord shall sound, And time shall be no more, And the morning breaks, Eternal, bright and fair: When the saved of earth Shall gather […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, January 8th, 2010

I didn’t do this last week (or the week before? I don’t even know!). I was a little busy celebrating. I didn’t spend much time on the internet and so I didn’t have many links, but I have a few for you today. This clip “Sin and the beanbag” by Josh Harris is definitely thought […]

Knitting Behind Bars

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

(this hat was knit by me–I just used it for a knitting photo) Last year I shared a quote I read in a knitting book. An article talked about knitting in prison and this made me smile. Skip LeBarge supervises inmates who make knit and crochet animals. “You ain’t seen nothin’ until a guy doing […]

Lee’s Roommate

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

I told you about this guy last summer. Lee is rooming with him again. I’ve talked with him on the phone a few times. I’ve only met him once at the probation officer’s office. Lee helps him a lot. He doesn’t seem to know how to take care of himself. Lee acts like it’s a […]

1 Peter 3:9

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. I looked through my journal this morning to see if I wanted to share anything. This passage and my notes struck me as a good thing to think about for any […]

Last of the vacation projects

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Here are the last few projects I worked on over our vacation. Socks for James–he wears them like slippers. The pattern I found for his pair uses thicker yarn and bigger needles. They knit up quite fast. Then I just HAD to knit socks for my “due any day now” nephew. We’re so excited but […]

Works of God

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

Anyone have any blessings yet in 2010? I was blessed to spend an afternoon with a friend last week. The kids played and we visited and it was a refreshing time. She gave me a huge bag of clothing from her son for James. I haven’t sorted it out yet, but it’s definitely a money […]

To God Be The Glory

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

I found this duet while searching for another song on You Tube. I always enjoy playing and singing this hymn. To God Be The Glory by Fanny Crosby To God be the glory, great things He hath done, So loved He the world that He gave us His Son, Who yielded His life an atonement […]
