June 27, Today’s thought — God Knows You by Name

Volunteer Watermelon Patch
Can you see the melons?

Good Morning

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Isaiah 49:13-16

Quite a thought, isn’t it?
Your name on God’s hand.
Your name on God’s lips.
Maybe you’ve seen your name in some special places.
On an award or diploma. . .
But to think that your name is on God’s hand and on God’s lips. . .
my, could it be?
Or perhaps you have never seen your name honored. And you can’t remember when you heard it spoken with kindness. IF so,it maybe more difficult for you to believe that God knows your name.
But He does.
Written on His hand.
Spoken by His moth.
Whispered by His lips.
Your name.
When God Whispers Your Name, Max Lucado

I had to smile when I read the Amplified version of verse 18:   Behold, I have indelibly imprinted (tattooed a picture of) you on the palm of each of My hands; [O Zion] your walls are continually before Me.

How many times have we seen someone write a note to themselves by writing it on their hand so they wouldn’t forget. It’s not something new, is it? God wrote my name on His hand so He wouldn’t forget me.
Thank you.

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

Yarn Along, June 27 – KALs and Take A Longs

Knitting, reading, and Listening – Life is good.

Clue A of Wendy Knits Mystery KAL received on June 20. I was ready. Casting on, ripping off and casting on again. The first 8 rows of Summery Solstice Shawl completed. I liked it.

I liked it so much I had to try the shawl in ivory silk and wool. I know I can be obsessive compulsive at times. I hoping for a understated elegance with this shawl.

Since all but one of the projects I’m knitting I have sit with directions in front of me, I cast on another shawl of mindless garter stitch, I’m calling Muted Jazz. This is my to go project that I can knit on at stop lights, in parking lots, and at the Chiro’s.

I’m still listening to Inkspell by Cordila Funke and reading Driving Force by Dick Francis.
