Yarn Along – Focusing


On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to 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.

Focused on these two projects this week:

This baby shawl, off the needles to see how it is growing.
Feb14 baby 001 (1)

Pretty, isn’t it?
Feb14 baby 001 (2) Baby is arriving soon.

Buster is guarding this quilt,
blocks together, half of border on,
Lord willing, to the quilter this evening.

Feb 14 ds quilt 003

Listening to, again, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, I am fascinated by the twists and turns of this book.

February 14, Today’s thought – Resist the Clamor

june 16 014Not only resisting the clamor, but ignoring it completely!

Good Morning

Seek the LORD, and his strength:
seek his face evermore. Psalm 105:4

Relax in my healing presence.
as you spend time with Me,
your thoughts tend to jump ahead
to today’s plans and problems.
Bring your mind back to me
for refreshment and renewal.
Let the Light of my Presence soak
into you as you focus your thoughts on me.
Thus I equip you to face whatever the day brings.
This sacrifice of time pleases Me
and strengthens you.
Do not scrimp on our time together.
Resist the clamor of tasks waiting to be done.
You have chosen what is better,
and it will not be taken away from you.
~~~Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:39-42

Take time. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
