June 6, Today’s thoughts — A Time For

“What are we doing next, Mom”

Good Afternoon

And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.Exodus 2:23-24

God always hears, and He never forgets.
His silence does not mean that He is not listening, and is not planning.
Probably it means that the best time of deliverance has not come yet, and that He is patiently waiting for the moment to arrive when He may prove His love and His power.
Cromwell said to his soldiers just before a great battle: “Know ye soldiers all, that that God always comes to man’s help in the nick of time.”
Yes, God is always on time; never behind and never ahead. Happy the man who learns to wait as he prays, and never loses patience with God. MEN WHO PRAYED.

There is a set time for putting into the furnace,
and a set time for taking out of the furnace.
there is a time for pruning the branches of the vine,
and there is a time when the husbandman lays aside the pruning hook.
Let us wait His time, “He that believeth shall not make haste.”
God’s time is the best time.
But shall we come out the same as we went in?
Ah, no!
We “shall come forth as gold.”
We shall become purer vessels to hold the sweet-smelling incense of praise and prayer.
We shall become holy golden vessels for the Master’s use in time and in Eternity.
“When a great issue is in the balance and the path is obscure, wait;
but with that waiting shirk no the work that lieth before thee,
for in that task may be the solution of thy problem.”

Trust god for your day . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

Yarn Along — June 6, 2012

“~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?” this is what Ginny asks;    I’m answering. . .

Holden Shawlette is off the needles, my circular point came off the cable. the Farmer did a gluing and I’m ready to put Holden back where it belongs.

Coffee Beanz wallably is getting its pouch.

While digging in the ‘stash shed’ this Noro and pattern in its own little bag called out to be cast on – (I heard last night that with obedience comes joy) – I’m Happy! Pattern – Gaia Shoulder Hug by Anne Carroll Gilmour with Noro Silk Garden Sock, color S272, grey,black, purple, turquoise, olive green.

The Stash Shed

I’m reading Faye Kellerman’s short stories in The Garden of Eden and Other Criminal Delights. Quick reads, humorous with a twist. While knitting I’m listening to Blue Gold by Clive Cussler.

Tami’s is a fun place to visit, too.  See you there!
