Yarn Along – I am a happy Shawl-aholic

On Wednesday’s knitters come to Ginny’s and Tami’s and share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from.  they also tell what they are reading and  a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts.  I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

Shelby’s Mochi Plus ruffled  shawl starts with the ruffle, I have about 30 more short row repeats before I can start on the body (more short rows).

Hope’s Alpaca Sox shawl is working up nicely. A little pink for my taste, hopefully she will think it is wonderful, especially since Grandpa Red bought the yarn.

Babetta’s Yarn and Gifts, my favorite local yarn shop, had a sale.
I had had my eye on this pattern and Babetta had yarn.

Here is the beginnings of Sothia, in plum and composition black grey.

I’m listening to Flash and Bones by Kathy Reichs – I like her stories, but the language is annoying.

August 15, Today’s thought — What To Do? Part 2

Good Morning

What Does the Lord Want Me to Do? (Part 2)

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8, NKJV).

Yesterday(last week) we looked at what the prophet Micah said, and highlighted the first of three comprehensive directives which the Lord has set before each one of us. The first was to do justly. Today we will look at the second.

Solomon wrote, “Let not mercy and truth forsake thee” (Proverbs 3:3).
Notice that mercy and truth must never be separated from one another. Truth without mercy is harsh; mercy without truth is irresponsible. Together they form the essence of godliness.
Solomon went on to say that mercy and truth working together in our hearts and lives would bring us favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Justice calls for action against that which is wrong;
mercy requires patience in dealing with those who have been wronged. Together they accomplish God’s will in our sphere of influence.
“God works powerfully,” wrote John Newton, “but for the most part He works gently and gradually.”
You and I cannot change the world, but we can do something about what goes on where we live. And if we’ll see to that, the Lord will take care of the rest. After all, the light that shines the farthest, shines brightest at home.
Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” Did you know that how you treat other people is a prayer you are praying, asking the Lord to treat you the same way?
The one sure path you can walk is the Way of Mercy.
What does the Lord want you to do?
He wants you to be a person who does justice, and who loves mercy.  Rylie.

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