Ready to Barter

Would you spend a few hours knitting dishcloths to be able to enjoy heirloom yellow tomatoes (whose name I have forgotten)?

I did.

Dishcloths are almost ready to send, just three little ends to weave in. Of course, I have to wait until next summer to enjoy the tomatoes.
That’s okay.

To see what others are finishing check out FO Fridays and Fiber Arts Friday.

September 7, Today’s thought – Up and Onward

See what you get when you don’t go to the post office but once a week.

Good Morning

Thou hast enlarged my steps under me,
that my feet did not slip.    Psalm 18:36
The law of his God is in his heart;
none of his steps shall slide.    Psalms 37:31
Our heart is not turned back,
neither have our steps declined from thy way;    Psalm 44:18
Righteousness shall go before him;
and shall set us in the way of his steps.    Psalm 85:13

We sit and weep in vain.
The voice of the Almighty said,
“Up and onward forevermore.”
Let us move on and step out boldly,
though it be into the night,
and we can scarcely see the way.
The path will open, as we progress,
like the trial through the forest or the Alpine pass,
which discloses but a few rods of its length
from any single point of view.
Press on!
If necessary, we will find even the pillar of cloud and fire
to make our journey through the wilderness.
There are guides and wayside inns along the road.
We will find food, clothes and friends
at every stage of the journey,
and as Rutherford so quaintly says:
“However matters go,
the worst will be a tired traveler
and a joyful and sweet welcome home.”
~Cowman, Streams in the Desert

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