What I'm Doing Today Mama, gone home these three years now. This lilac bush is from a cutting I took of one in her yard:

piecing...quilt squares by hand: Diamond Charm quilt. I love six needles moving across the quilt simultaneously, dimpling the surface:
meditating on...II Peter 1: 3-4:
"According as His divine power has given unto us all things that
pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us
to glory and virtue:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature..."
teaching....Algebra. Geometry. Biology. History. Literature. Loving it!
*********** visit Daddy in the nursing home.
thankful...for God's provision.
*********** trust Him more!
bragging...on Joe Hardy, who is finally a SENIOR in college!
*********** dozens of sparrows in the ivy growing up the side of the house next door.
reading...Eat for Health by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
*********** we got to be at the beginning of the recycling truck's route (5 a.m.!)
*********** bedsheets! Love fresh sheets.
praying...for my children. Jobs. Relationships. Healing.
cooking...lentil soup.
*********** dear Charming. I don't deserve him!
*********** sewing room.
writing...a bio for Charming for his ministry packet.
fixing...sweet tea with lime.
*********** the beginning of a gorgeous day outside!
looking Violet's visit in a few days.
*********** be conformed to the image of God's Son.
Sounds like a busy day. Better get started!

Hey Barb, you got one busy day there! Glad I happened on you. Think the Lord just kinda blesses us like that. Look after your Prince Charming and those kids. Bless you BIG. Thanks for the verses from 2 Peter.

Those verses you're meditating on today are the inspiration for my blog It is SO powerful to think that His power has given us EVERYTHING we need for experiencing "abundant life" and living godly in this present age. A friend and I went to a local plant sale. We enjoyed each other's company and I selected a few new samples to try in my garden. They're planted just in time to drink some of the rain falling as I write.

Me, again! So good to get your note and know we're almost neighbors. (I used to live in FW, moved to Archbold, OH for 5 years where hubby was on staff at a church; then to Kalamazoo MI where he directed a camp for 5 years or so, and now back here! Let's keep in touch. Rebecca

I admire your quilts!
