Wednesday's Word. Wednesday Wrap Ups. Pressing On. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Wednesday's Word

"...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...."
Whom will we serve?  It's our choice.  During a sermon on loving our family on purpose, Pastor was sharing wonderful parenting tips.  As an adult survivor of child abuse as well as a parent who has made mistakes, I wondered if some of those listening may be 1) wishing they had parents such as the ones he was teaching about or 2) were parents who are burdened by mistakes they have made.  I fit into both categories.  


Before the defeated one could tangle me up, I recalled ...

Monday's Strength. Morning Glory + New Projects. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength
At my church, Heart for the World, Pastor Dale has some really cool sayings that I have begun to call "Daleisms".  When I told him about them, he laughed and said he'd never heard of them before.  I've decided to share a few from the June 23rd service which is part of a series titled "Loving Your Family On Purpose".  

"Success is having the love and respect of those who know you the best."

At the times all is right in his marriage, he feels like he can "charge hell with a water pistol!"

"When ...

Monday's Strength. Morning Glory Blocks 14-15 Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength

Oh how true - we can be blasted by situations, but we are not destroyed.  During Sunday's sermon, my pastor, Dale Walker, stated, "Bring faith into fear, praise into pain."  

If we chose to do just that and remember 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 we can keep the defeated one just that:  defeated!

Morning Glory Blocks 14-15

Monday's Strength. Morning Glory Blocks 12-13. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength


My dear reader, God does indeed bring it all together for us in the end.  I love this part of the verse.  

Why does He do this?
"Because He cares,
cares right down to the last detail." James 5:11
That is such a blessing and reassurance for me as I am definitely not a detail person.  Knowing my life and the lives of my loved ones are in the hands of One who cares right down to the last detail is a source of peace for me.  In the moment, I may not understand His ways ...

Monday's Strength. Morning Glory Blocks 10-11. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength

This morning I needed a word from the LORD, His guidance.  So I reached into my Scripture box and: Wow.  He made His will very clear to me, confirming what He has been telling me all week.  

Do we go forth when He calls us to unknown, seemingly scary places or do hesitate?  To be honest, I'm hesitating.  He is patient, though.  He will continue to prepare me for this journey into the unknown.  He'll do the same for you my friend.

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

This one little corner is finished of Morning Glory – well kind of that is – now it will have a piece going out to each side and from there I will decide if I will do the whole big  border!  It looks a lot different than that bland beige it started at doesn’t it.  […]

A Little Applique A Little Quilting from Quilts....etc.

And I could say a little piecing and a little baking.  A somewhat busy day.  I really shouldn’t have done the baking but I had used the last of the granola on Saturday morning and that is my favorite breakfast so needed to make more no matter if it would get the A/C running or […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

When I get in the mood for applique I can really get moving on it.  Once the color started to be added my interest grew!  The red tulips were finished yesterday afternoon and I started on one blue flower.  This is only moving so quickly as I was not doing any gardening again yesterday while […]

Applique and a Quilt Top from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was a no exercise day – my lower back was acting up – too much garden work will do it to me so no garden work for the rest of the week so it will not get real bad – I know when to say enough is enough – so instead I sat out […]

Monday's Strength. Morning Glory Blocks 8 - 9. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength


You know, I've been surprised at how calm and peaceful I've been these last few months.  Yes, there have been tears, but, for the most part, I've been walking in faith.  

I like this sentence from Jana Alcorn's book, Don't Throw in the Towel, Hope Again!  How can we grow our ability to handle disappointment?  By leaning on our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.  It's only through Him that our strength comes.  

I pray for His joy - which is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10).  Then, after my pain, trial, disappointment has ...

Lost and Found from Quilts....etc.

I know we as quilters with boxes of supplies stashed all over our sewing rooms that sometimes overflow to other parts of the house have probably had this happen to you as well as to me –  somehow a small box of fabric meant to be used with the scrappy flannel hexies was put aside […]

A Rainy Day from Quilts....etc.

It was raining all day yesterday but not as heavy as the weather forecasters had said for our area, as I am writing this at almost 7 last night it probably turned out that we got a lot more in the middle of the night!  So other than running out to the dentist (cleaning and […]

Wednesday's Word. BOM's Away. Lost in the Crowd. Pressing On. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Wednesday's Word

Amen and amen.  I will not fear.  And if I do:  read, believe, repeat.

BOM's Away - Morning Glory Block 7
I finished another block - Block 7/12!  

My daughter gave me a fantastic tip about this cool pattern!  She told me to cut out all the pieces for each block and "kit" them as I did the "Jingle all The Way" quilt.  Then, when I have a few minutes, pull a kit and sew them up!

Lost in the Crowd

I've also been enjoying some mindless scrap sewing as I work on my "Lost in ...

Crochet & Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday between outside work and the fitness center I got in close to 12,000 steps – that is my goal right now – trying for that at least 5 or 6 days a week – it is always easier to do this at this time of year as I spend more time outside.  Last night […]
