Pieces in the Garden - Steps to the Altar - Block #6 from Melva Loves Scraps

 “Bride’s Quilt”
Once upon a time, there was a little girl, who wore a bow in her hair. When she grew up, she began a friendship with a young bachelor. As the hours and days passed, they began to look at each other with stars in their eyes, and as their love grew, they thought about taking steps to the altar.

After they are married, some of their times together will be bright as noon and others will ...

Weekly Word: A Transparent Testimony Plus My Reading, Stitching and Gratitude This Week! from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer


 

Hello there!

It's good to be back!  I'm recovering from the partial knee replacement with a new attitude which I am sharing in The Weekly Word.  Full disclosure, this devotional is quite transparent and humbling to share online, but how can I not share how God has changed me?  

This week's post is only a partial look into my hobbies, however, you will soon be caught up in the next few weeks.  

The "Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer" link below offers more details about my physical recovery.

Teatime with TT and Karri from Melva Loves Scraps

Welcome to Teatime with TT... Tressie Teegarden.  Today, Karri, is stopping by to share some of her most special memories...  Won't you grab a cup of tea and join us?  Karri is the youngest grandchild, to Tressie...

Grandma knew how to entertain.  I was always impressed by her fancy dishes and doilies on the table.   We were camping on the property and Grandma brought a tray of little seashells out with little appetizers on them.  I do not know where she kept them in the camper, which just held essentials, but I was a fan for life and always ...

Welcome to Teatime with TT... Tressie Teegarden.  Today my brother, Kelvin, is stopping by to share some of his most special memories...  Won't you grab a cup of tea and join us?  Kelvin is the first-born grandchild, and only grandson, to Tressie & Forrest Teegarden...

Side Note::  Kelvin is a lot like Forrest.  He doesn't like to write much and getting short and direct answers to questions is the response when asked a question.  He shared his favorite memories with me and I am expanding on the them since I was with him in all of these.

Kim is the second born grand-child, and first grand-daughter, to Tressie & Forrest Teegarden...

 Hello There, 

Thank you for stopping in for a visit!  Pull up a chair and relax as you read!  I hope you leave encouraged and smiling!

Here's is an index should ...
